The New Orleans Saints secured a playoff spot last Sunday when the beat the Atlanta Falcons at home.  This is the black and gold's first appearance in the playoffs since 2013.

The Carolina Panthers also won this past Sunday which leaves the NFC South upfor grabs now this Sunday.  The panthers will take on Atlanta while the Saints will take on Tampa Bay.

Both games are NFC South games and will determine the NFC South division champs once both games are played.  The Saints can win the NFC South with a win over the Tampa.  They have beat the Panthers twice this season so they own the tie breaker.
