Last week: 3 (+0) Record: 6-1 The Saints have now won and covered in 13 straight games at home under Sean Payton. They aren’t quite the same team on the road, but, other than Seattle, their next toughest road games are in Carolina and Atlanta. They could easily win all of their home games (Dallas, Carolina, San Francisco, Tampa Bay) and lose maximum 2 road games, finish 13-3 and be in great position with a 1st round bye and home field advantage. The Jimmy Graham injury hurts, but he was still very dangerous in a limited role last week, catching 3 passes for 37 yards and 2 touchdowns on 19 snaps.
