Saints, for now


If we're talking about the Colts and Saints meeting two days from now, give me the Saints. I think New Orleans is healthier and a more complete team overall at this point of the season. While I think Drew Brees and Peyton Manning would essentially play to a draw, the Saints have more weapons at the ready right now, particularly in the running game. Additionally, after watching how the New Orleans defense stymied the Patriots on Monday night, you'd have to like New Orleans' chances of outplaying the Colts' defense.

Now, if these teams meet in February? Completely different ball game, I imagine. In a game this Sunday, however, I'd favor the Saints.
