I mean, on one hand, there's still a slim chance we could win the division, right? So we'd want the Saints to lose so that we have a chance of being the higher seed.
But on the other hand, we're most likely going to end up being a wildcard team, so we're really more concerned with having a better record than the other wild card team.
So go Saints?
Well at this point it doesn't matter because both Car and NO lost to Seattle and we lost to both of them so all that matters is if either one of them won out or only lost once and Seattle drops at least 2 of their remaining games for NO/CAR to get the #1.
As I've said before, Carolina's D is good but highly overrated. People were misled by the Pats only scoring 20 against them. They could've easily put up 35 or 40 but Carolina's offense had a lot of long drives, holding the Pats to just 7 possessions. Pats averaged an excellent 55 yards per possession (about 17 yards more than any team has averaged this season). One of them ended in a fumble, and on the last one they drove 60 yards in 60 seconds before the game ended. Now the Saints are shredding them. They don't belong in the same conversation with our D.
