…They should’ve lost to the Browns, Falcons, and Ravens, and they still face eight playoff hopefuls. This team plays far better at home. If they want to play their in January, this week’s home game against the Rams is an absolute must-w…
True, but there is no chance they will play on the road anywhere but in sunny L.A. in January. The Saints will be extremely tough regardless of who they play in the post season.
They killed the Redskins and beat Baltimore and Minnesota on the road. I think the Saints should be in the top tier.
For an 8–0 team, the Rams have looked vulnerable on both sides of the ball many times, which makes no sense.
The defense was awful against the Packers, giving up huge gains on every scoring drive. The good news is that they didn’t spend much time on the field, as they either gave up a quick socre or got off the field with a stop (5 punts, 2 field goals), plus the safety that turned the game around.
I was really disappointed by the Rams offense, as Green Bay has had a terrible defense this year. Goff took sacks because he holds on to the ball too long, but doesn’t have the shiftiness of a Rodgers, the strength of Rothlisberger, or the speed of Wilson.
The play calling was really bad in the first half, as the Packers had 6 defensive back in the game and the Rams didn’t run for 200+ yards.
This is the kind of game where they should have scored 38, and might have needed every single point if the Packers didn’t fumble the kickoff at the end.
I think the Saints are better than the Chiefs, and right around the level of the Patriots, who will continue to improve this season.
I do hope you’re correct about a Rams-Chiefs Super Bowl.
