As the National Football League schedule continues its march into December, it is looking quite possible that the road to Indianapolis could very well lead through the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The New Orleans Saints are playing superb football, and the team hopes to power its way into the post-season in search of a world championship. Drew Brees and Darren Sproles are two of the many reasons that head coach Sean Payton’s troops have fans in the French Quarter thinking about bringing the Vince Lombardi trophy back to New Orleans. With just a couple of regular-season home games remaining, now is the perfect time to get a ticket and cheer the team on to victory.
On the strength of Brees’ powerful right arm, the Saints have become an offensive juggernaut. Sitting at 9-3 and riding a 4-game winning streak, Brees has the high-flying offense clicking on all cylinders. He is on pace to smash the NFL record for total passing yards in a season, eclipsing the mark held by Dan Marino. The team hung a season-high 62 points on the Indianapolis Colts and is averaging 32.8 points per game, while the defense yields a stingy 22.4 points per game to its opponents.
The January 1st clash with the Carolina Panthers is the last opportunity for fans to catch the home team at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome before they begin their quest for a NFL championship. Payton has the team peaking at just the right time, and many experts have them and the Green Bay Packers as the two favorites to represent the National Football Conference in the Super Bowl. New Years Day is the last chance for Saints’ fans to cheer the team on as they begin the journey from the Superdome to the Super Bowl.
