Most pundits had written the Saints off coming into Saturday – the franchise had never won a playoff game on the road and the team was 3-5 on the road during the regular season – but grueling as it was, the Saints came through with the win to advance. Much credit to Rob Ryan’s defense to hold LeSean McCoy in check for the night.
The Saints go on to face the Seahawks in CenturyLink Field, where the Saints lost 34-7 in Week 13. Teams have rebounded from far worse regular season losses in recent history to win in postseason rematches, so let that not dissuade you from thinking the Saints have a chance to pull the upset.
In the meantime, very enjoyable response from the folks working at The Linc.
