After last week's slugfest win over the Rams, the 8-1 Saints look like a favorite to make it to the Superbowl.

After dropping 45 points on the Rams 2 weeks ago and 51 on the Bengals last week, the Saints put up another 48 points today while crushing the defending Superbowl champions. Although the Eagles do not look much like defending champions right now.  Drew Brees had another ho-hum day at the office with 22/30 accuracy, 4 touchdowns, no interceptions, and 363 yards.   At age 39 he is having one of the best seasons a quarterback has ever had, with 25 touchdowns and just 1 interception, along with completely absurd statistics that should only exist in a video game.



MEANWHILE IN CANADA!

Ottawa quarterback Trevor Harris played what might be the best playoff game a CFL quarterback has ever played.   29 completions on 32 attempts! That's insane! 90.6% accuracy is a CFL playoff record. Six touchdown passes! That's insane too! That's also a CFL playoff record.  And 367 yards and no interceptions. 

367 yards isn't actually extraordinary by CFL standards... Harris himself threw for 457 yards in his only previous playoff game. But that was in a losing effort, and the reason he had to throw all those passes is that his team was behind and trying to catch up.  In this game they were comfortably in front for most of the game and he had the luxury of picking his shots.  Which he did. 29 completions on 32 attempts is absurd!  In a preseason game against 2nd-string players, maybe. In a regular season against the worst team in the league, maybe. In a divisional final? It's ridiculous!  The only way you could do better is if the defensive players were just sitting on the bench.  The defensive players had 32 chances and could only break up 3 passes. They should feel very, very badly about this.

Ottawa will play Calgary in the Grey Cup game.
