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.
