Saints marching again?
The New Orleans Saints’ surprising 28-17 thrashing of the Seattle Seahawks last night couldn’t have come at a better time. Three of the Saints’ next four games will be played in the Superdome. They’ll play Atlanta (1-4), San Francisco (2-3), Jacksonville (4-1) and St. Louis (0-6) over the next four weeks. Only the San Francisco game will be played on the road.
On paper, Jacksonville would appear to pose the most serious threat to the Saints over the next few weeks. But that game will be played in New Orleans, and a packed Superdome won’t exactly be the most hospitable place in the world for the visiting Jaguars.
Last night’s victory could mark the beginning of the Saints’ turnaround.
“It’s just the first of many wins,” said Saints running back Reggie Bush. “We have to focus on just one game, one win. That’s all we wanted to do, was just win this game and that’s all we can worry about. Now we have to focus on Atlanta.”
