- The Saints have a better secondary
- The Saints won every big game early in the season against good teams by lopsided sc ...[text shortened]... ng after they had basically clinched everything
- They're at home
- Jonathan Vilma rules
Humm? Ok I'll give you 3 points for home field.
Brees VS Favre is a great match-up. But Favre is playing his best football of his career. NO will have to work hard at disguising the defense.
NO has a great secondary, granted. Minnesota has a great front 4, which makes life in the secondary better. Ray Edwards from RDE and Allen from LDE and of course the Williams guys.
I threw Moss in, because it seems there is this auro of minnesota recievers having to live up to his talent. Sidney Rice made a catch yesterday, that just blew me away. He seems to not even look at the ball, but there it is and he's gone.
I'll have to look more at NO stats though. I knew harvin would never get a chance to run a long ball back against dallas. The guy has a very strong leg.
I also think the dallas D basically played ok, Favre had a good day avoiding the rush. Those happen.
