Saints Still Have Chance to Make Playoffs

Even after losing to the Eagles on Sunday, the Saints still might be able to squeak into the playoffs.  The Saints must beat Chicago at Soldier Field on Sunday and have BOTH the Vikings and Redskins lose.

Is it possible? Yes.  Is it probable?  No.  The Redskins will face the Dallas Cowboys next week.  Dallas has already clinched home field throughout the playoffs.  Terrell Owens will not play, and I am assuming Tony Romo will not play for more than a half.  Terry Glenn will most likely be back, but I expect Dallas to quickly rotate out most of their key starters. 

This will leave the door wide open for Washington team who only needs a win to clinch the final NFC playoff spot.  The Vikings will play a very tough Denver team at Mile High.  The Broncos have already been eliminated from the AFC playoffs.  I do not expect them to rollover, but the Vikings have a very real chance to easily win that game.

The situation does not look good for the Black and Gold faithful.  However, as long as there’s a possibility, this Saints fan will keep his fingers crossed and keep on hoping.
