Gameday is here and it is the first noon kickoff the Saints have seen since week ten. The Saints go on the road to face the Tennessee Titans, another team fighting for a playoff spot. It should be a little bit on the cold side in Nashville for today’s game, so let’s see how the Saints play outside of their comfort zone. It will be a great game as the Saints look to get win number ten on the season and here are five things I will be watching for in today’s game.
1. Are the Titans a factor in the AFC playoff picture?
On paper the Titans are in fact a team in the thick of the AFC playoff race but on the field it is another story. They have a soft schedule , winning games they are favored in and losing to teams with better records have been the Titans' season up to this point. Winning this game today against the Saints would quiet the naysayers talking about the Titans playoff chances as it is a game they should not win. I think the Titans are a good football team but with limited firepower on offense and their inability to get the opposing offense off the field will hurt the Titans going forward in their quest to lock down a playoff spot.
2. Can the Saints play good football on the road?
