5 Factors That Will Fuel the Saints in the Playoffs

The New Orleans Saints might just be the best team in the entire NFL. They tied for the best record in the regular season at 13-3. The Saints also beat the Los Angeles Rams, the team with which they share that record.

Thanks to a stellar regular season, New Orleans will now host a divisional-round game against the Philadelphia Eagles. As the No. 1 seed, it will also hold home-field advantage up until Super Bowl LII.

Getting to this point hasn't been a cakewalk, though. The Saints started the season 0-1, dealt with a four-game suspension for running back Melvin Ingram III and survived a three-game road trip inside the final five weeks of the season.
