Good news in Louisiana, as the New Orleans Saints have become the first team to clinch a playoff spot in the 2021 NFL postseason.

Many thought that the Saints may have taken a step back after their shaky start, but even without Drew Brees, New Orleans is reminding the league that they're not playing around this season.

The 10-2 Saints have rallied off nine consecutive victories after starting the season 1-2 and have to be recognized as one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL.

Even without Drew Brees in the lineup, Taysom Hill has showcased his ability to be a legitimate quarterback and throw the ball down field. His dual-threat ability has made this Saints team even more dynamic on the offensive end.

Alvin Kamara has over 1,000 all purpose yards already for the Saints. The versatile running back can do it all, and this year he is really making a case for being the best dual-threat running back in the NFL.

The Saints defense has also really stepped it up as of late. At the beginning of the season they were having trouble getting to the quarterback and were giving up big plays downfield. Over the last five weeks the Saints haven't allowed more than 16 points in a game, and have held teams under 10 points three times.

It's going to be interesting to see what the Saints will do entering the playoffs once Brees is eligible to play. Do they go back to the old, reliable passer, or do they try out the new, shiny toy in Hill?

Regardless of who's under center, the NFC has huge problems with the surging Saints punching their ticket in the postseason.
