The Saints won and are now one step closer to securing the HFA before we play them. It is not that I think we can't beat them but an easy win for the Panthers against the Saints (and mabye even the Vikings) looks good on both our regular record and our Strength of victory. I am going to try and break down the HFA and Bye races here:
The Saints beat the Patriots and are a game above the Vikings, but would they hold a tiebreaker, forcing the Vikings to 2 up the Saints. Remember, we want the 1 and 2 spot secured by week 15 to give us easy games against the Vikings and the Saints. If we do then we have two challenges in games against the Giants and the Patriots. The Giants are doing worse as of late than we are so they should be easy if we get our act together. If we can rule out both the vikings and the Saints as resting victories then our chances jump to 8.93% so cheer for the saints please.
