Saints at Redskins

The 11-0 Saints are set up for another trap game this week, when they travel to Washington on a short week. The Saints defeated New England Monday night, and will now have to go on the road against a team that has nothing to lose.

With all that said, who doubts that Sean Payton and Drew Brees won't have the team focused and prepared to play?

There's already lots of talk among fans and media about the team going undefeated. But the team says that they are focused on winning one game at a time.

Normally, coaches may rest their players for the playoffs and not push for a perfect season, but the Saints are only one game ahead of the Vikings for the top seed in the NFC playoffs. So New Orleans will need to keep winning to maintain home field advantage. That should be focus enough for the team to take care of business this week in Washington.

Saints 31
Redskins 16
