Sunday PM update: The Saints needed a win in Week 18 paired with a loss from the 49ers. Though they snagged the W against the Falcons, the Rams lost after rookie DB Ambry Thomas came up with a pick against veteran QB Matthew Stafford.
The Saints will enter with an 8-8 record, and they’ve won three of their last four games to get back into this position, and Taysom Hill will get the start at quarterback.
New Orleans has one scenario to advance to the postseason. The Saints need to beat the Falcons, and the San Francisco 49ers will need to lose to the Los Angeles Rams, so New Orleans could be in a nice position heading into Week 18.
The Saints are going into this game as 3.5-point favorites, and the 49ers will enter as 4.5-point underdogs.
