The Road to the #1 seed in the NFC Playoffs is underway!

The New Orleans Saints are trying to capture the #1 seed in the NFC for the 2nd season in a row. In order for that to happen they will need a few things to happen in their favor.

The Saints need 3 things to happen:

  1. Week 16 - Minnesota Vikings defeats the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football
  2. Week 17 - New Orleans Saints defeats the Carolina Panthers
  3. Week 17 - Seattle Seahawks defeats the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football.

If so, the Saints will play their playoff games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Playing in the playoffs in front of the Saints fans and a raucous Superdome crowd will give the Saints home-field advantage. The Saints are 7-1 in home playoff games under Sean Payton. Their only home loss came last year in the NFC Championship game vs Los Angeles.
