The New Orleans Saints have had it pretty tough to start the season, to say the least. Luckily for them, things are getting back on track.
When I say tough, I mean a 1-3 start. I mean most injuries in the NFL type of tough start. It has not been fun to watch, to say the least.
After a shutout win last week against the Las Vegas Raiders, it may appear things are getting back on track.
The defense looked together, and the offense looked elite at moments.
But, their matchup in Week 9 may be tough, as the Baltimore Ravens are a good team, and in fact, one of the better teams in the league, despite what their record may say.
The Saints have to handle business first before things can get easier.
On Monday, a win would put the Saints in a three-way tie for first place in the NFC South, as all three teams would be 4-5. Then, the schedule would be one of the easiest in the NFL, in terms of current records.
The only opponent after the Ravens from here on out that is above .500 on the year, is the Philadelphia Eagles, who may be the best team in the NFL.
After Monday night, the only team currently ABOVE .500 left on the #Saints schedule is Philadelphia.

Other than them, everyone else and their record would suggest they weren’t great teams. So, it could only get easier from here on out.
But like we said, they have to handle business on Monday Night Football first.
