Saints clinch the playoffs if: We win vs Buccaneers, OR Cardinals lost to 49ers
Saints clinch NFC south and first round bye if: Saints beat Buccaneers, Panthers lose to Falcons.
So basically saints fans should be cheering for the falcons (ew) to beat the Panthers early. The saints game is a 345 game, so that will have my main attention. Then if the Falcons win that game, we should easily beat the Bucs and clinch a first round bye. And if the Panthers win, we will keep an eye on the Cardinals game if the Saints somehow start to suck at home.
