Did You Realize How Good The New Orleans Saints Are Playing?
The New Orleans Saints are getting back to work today, after the team got a major road-win last Sunday in Green Bay. When I say major, I mean major. The Saints have finished the last few years 7-9, and at no point during those seasons did the team string together 4 straight wins. But that victory over the Packers sealed a 4-game win streak.
Plus it was IN Green Bay.
Yeah, I know Aaron Rodgers was injured, and didn't play. But back in 2013, Rodgers missed multiple games with (former LSU Tiger) Matt Flynn teaming with Scott Tolzien to help guide the Packers to an NFC North championship and Playoff appearance. Flynn also guided the Packers to a monster win against the Detroit Lions at the end of the 2011 season. So basically what I'm saying is that the Mike McCarthy led Packers are still hard to beat without Rodgers...especially at the Frozen Tundra.
Anyway. Can they keep it up? Can they go 5-in-a-row? The home game they're preparing for looks ripe for it. Here's more from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"The Saints are back at practice today getting ready for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. Chicago is 3-4 on the season they have a good running game led by second-year pro Jordan Howard and the defense is much improved over last season. Rookie safety Eddie Jackson scored two touchdowns in last week’s win over Carolina."
