Last week: 16 (-1)

Record: 6-8

Net points per drive: 0.14 (12th)

DVOA: -1.3% (15th)

Weighted DVOA: 1.5% (14th)

The Saints still remain mathematically alive for a playoff spot at 6-8 off a huge blowout home win and now they head to Dallas, where the Cowboys really struggle as home favorites and really struggle in December under Tony Romo (generally). With a home game week 17 against the Panthers, they should finish 8-8, but they’ll need a lot of help to make the playoffs and I don’t think they’ll get it.
