But, what does it mean? I'm actually split on this. While it brings the Saints off of cloud 9, what now? Could they come apart? Do they finish out at 15-1? Does that mean we are back in the hunt for home field in the playoffs? While the Saints may finally have been brought down, the thing that worries me now is the Saints doing similar to what we have done in our two losses.........learn and adjusted. I would still have the Saints finish the season 15-1, tho rather 16-0 thinking they were untouchable, much like what happened to us in 1998. But being this late in the season, how do they take this? I still think head to head, we have a more balanced team, but we know now, the Saints aren't "untouchable". Do they make the necessary adjustments going into the playoffs? Do they have the personnel to make adjustments? Do they come apart and hand us home field? Do we even want home field or rather have the Vikes kept on their toes? What is everyone's take?
Ive updated this a few times to flow a little better as I slapped this post together as the game was ending. A few of you may have noticed the changes.
