Isn’t it crazy to think about how the Saints were written off by many back in Week 2 against the Rams when Drew Brees went down with a thumb injury?
With all due respect to Teddy Bridgewater, there’s a reason why Brees is basically a lock for Canton when the time comes down the road, and the offense seemed like it would struggle a bit while getting used to the former Louisville star after watching him against Los Angeles.
Instead, Bridgewater has led the Saints to two impressive wins in a row over the Seahawks and Cowboys, showing they deserve to be in the conversation of playoff contender in the NFC with the rest of the teams.
Bridgewater may only be filling in until Brees is healthy enough to return, but as long as New Orleans continues to win games, and make a strong case for being the top team to beat in the NFC South, this is the most important factor.
Since the Rams already handed the Saints their only loss back in Week 2, the only way these two teams could meet again would be in January during the playoffs, which would certainly make things entertaining after last year’s NFC Championship.
