It is time to stand up and get crunk, Who Dat Nation! The Saints take on the Colts in the final home game of the season. There are a lot of implications at stake for both teams. The Saints are looking to continue their fight for the number one seed. The Colts are on the outside looking in for a Wild Card spot. You can expect both teams to give it their all in this crucial match-up.
Both teams have a good bit of history against each other. The Saints lead the all time series at 8-5. The Colts won the first three games while they still played in Baltimore. The black and gold would win the next five then lose two in a row and have since won the last three. The biggest game of all was Super Bowl XLIV. That came had a lot of great moments and the Saints would come out on top by a score of 31-17. This was back in 2009 and since then neither team has made an appearance again.
History is also in play tonight for Drew Brees. He his currently three touchdown passes away from breaking Peyton Manning’s record. Once again, he has a chance to do that on Monday Night Football against the team he spent most of his career with. The best thing for the Saints to do is keep that offensive game plan from last week. The defense needs to have the mentality like they have when playing on the road. To me, that is when they play their best football.
Who Dat Nation needs to come with their best effort before the playoffs. The Saints need to handle business on their own end before they can look for help elsewhere. These last three games are going to be a tough stretch. They are banged up on both sides but have to keep fighting. To top it off, this team has yet to play a true complete game. Now that is a scary thought going into the postseason. Who Dat!
