No doubt the Saints (this is hard to say) are the team to beat in the NFL this year.

With the remaining game we have left it appears we are a shoewin for homefield advantage in the playoffs, which is a dangerous thing for any team coming down here.

The Saints on the other hand, they've had a couple tough wins, but they're still steamrolling through the NFL. I'm glad Denver doesn't play them this year.
Everyone makes mistakes...and I am equally glad that Denver isn't on our schedule.

Let's not get carried away...the run defense still ahs question marks due to injuries and we all know how one injury can change the entire season...**cough** Tom Brady **cough**

But if we get it and don't make the Super Bowl I would be very disappointed.

The Broncos and Steelers are in the middle of a HUGE defensive struggle. The Broncos just pulled ahead 10-7.

I'd personally say the Colts are the team to beat. They are undefeated this season, and I believe were on a 9 game winning streak last season before going into the playoffs and losing to the chargers.

So basically, not a single team other than the chargers has beaten Indy in over 15 games. In fact, the last time the Colts lost a regular season game was over a year ago, on October 27th 2008 to the Titans. Pretty crazy.




What a stud

last season =/= this season.

whatever the colts did last year was not done this year and really doesn't matter.

The Saints have lost more players to injuries (and they expect them all back at one point), played a tougher schedule, and score more then any other team in the league.

With Indy's secondary injuries...there is no way they could hold Brees and the Saints to less then 35. Especially since the Saints can run the ball.

I would love to see the match-up..we already spanked one Manning. I would love it even more if both teams went undefeated throughout the season and playoffs and matched up in the Super Bowl like that...oh the unlikeliness.

I'm starting to feel terrible for the Browns. They are probably the worst team in the NFL, but it's still arguable due to the Raiders also being terrible.

We are hurting bad right now with all the injuries...I think if we could get all our guys back and healthy and play the Colts I don't think they could beat us, but that would be depending majorly on us being healthy.

It's definately a close race between the two. They are both just out right horrible football teams.

Agreed...but the only guys with serious injuries are Sed Ellis and Jamaal Brown...Brown has been all year and Bushrod is really proving himself. Sed plugs up holes and eats blockers in the running game and Hargrove is showing his strength is pass rushing and not run stuffing. So that hurts us big in that area.

But Indy is in the same position...but their major injuries come in the secondary and to their best players back there. Greer and Porter we aren't really sure about...I think they would play if it were the playoffs...Porter sprained his MCl so that can either be minor or major...there is no telling.

My money is on the Browns and it isn't close...at least the Raiders receivers can get separation...they just can't catch the passes. The Browns guys can't get open adn when they do...Brady/Derek can't hit em or find em

Did anyone catch the end of the Ravens v. Colts game? Ed Reed is a veteran, and a damn good player, but my God, horrible decision!

Not to mention, the Steelers struggling with the Chiefs when Polamalu is out. The Steelers are a one man team, and without Polamalu, they struggle to get it done.
