The New Orleans Saints are 5-1 on the year and 4-0 in games that Teddy Bridgewater has started and are gunning for the top seed in the NFC.
Things have been going great for the New Orleans Saints and just over a month ago, that felt more like an optimistic dream than a reality. The Saints have won every game that Teddy Bridgewater has started since Drew Brees injured his thumb and the Saints are 5-1 on the year.
The only game that the Saints have lost was the game in which Brees was hurt. The Los Angeles Rams got off to a hot start and the Saints’ offensive gameplan was built with Brees in mind, not Bridgewater.
With time to adapt, the Saints have done what every great team does and overcame the biggest possible injury that the team could have faced. Now, not only do the playoffs feel like a lock, but the Saints making a run at the first seed in the NFC does as well.
The Saints are not just going to make a run for the first seed, though, they are going to win it for the second year in a row.
Outside of Drew Brees returning, here are the reasons why the Saints are a virtual lock to be the NFC’s best.
