Looking at the results of what should have been the toughest game on New Orleans' schedule, my guess would be no one, at least not in the regular season. (Congratulations to Drew Brees for throwing a statistically perfect game, only the twenty-sixth quarterback to do so since 1980.) Their remaining five games are at Washington (3-8); at Atlanta (6-5); home versus Dallas (8-3); home versus Tampa Bay (1-10); and finishing at Carolina (4-7). No game is easy in the NFL but only Dallas looks like it will even be a challenge for them. It seems a foregone conclusion that they will play Minnesota in the NFC championship game and, I guess, Indianapolis in the Super-Big Game At The End Of The Season(r).
