Week 1 was a good week to be a Saints fans. The Saints won, while the Falcons, Panthers, Vikings and 49ers all floundered to 0-1 starts. While the two lattermost teams don’t have the most direct implications on the Saints’ playoff hopes (yet), they’re two teams the Saints likely don’t particularly want to see in the playoffs.
As Week 2 approaches, Saints fans will look for more of the same. There are a few interesting matchups on the schedule, including another tough game against a division-favorite for the Falcons and a divisional matchup for the Panthers and Buccaneers.
