The New Orleans Saints kicked off to the Atlanta Falcons Monday, rated as the NFL’s best team by Las Vegas oddsmakers, the guys who supposedly know best — or else.
The Saints — yes, the Saints! — rated a point better than Indianapolis and New England, three points better than Minnesota, the second best team in the NFC.
You know what? The Saints just might be. The best. That’s now, just seven games into a 16-game regular season.
