METAIRIE, LA. – This has been one of the most challenging football seasons for the Saints. The five game losing streak is a first under head coach Sean Payton in his tenure at New Orleans. The Saints are without 11 key players in 9 different positions. However, Payton and the Saints aren’t giving up.

“I mean, we had a tough stretch, it’s behind us. No one’s going to be upset or feel sorry for you. We have to build able to pick ourselves up here and get ready to play some good football in this last five week stretch of the season and that’s going to take everyone in the building,” said Payton.

The 5-7 Saints are not entirely out of the playoff picture. There’s a 14 % chance New Orleans makes it, but if they lose to the Jets the chances drop to 5%, if they win, it increases to 20%.
