  Is there any team hotter in the NFL right now than the New Orleans Saints?  After getting off to a 0-4 start, the Saints have won four of their last five games.  Sunday’s win over the previously undefeated Atlanta Falcons puts the Saints at 4-5 with seven games remaining.  If the Saints can continue their winning ways they could very well make a late season push for the playoffs.  Getting in to the postseason is key as a hot New Orleans team could very well go on a Super Bowl run similar to last year’s 9-7 New York Giants.
