I heard this title, “New York State football champs,” on WWL radio over the weekend after the Saints pulled off the trifecta: Three consecutive NFL wins in as many games against New York opponents:
Saints 27, Buffalo 7
Saints 24, NY Jets 14
Saints 48, NY Giants 27
What are the odds of the schedule maker lining up consecutive games against all 3 of New York’s teams? And what were the odds of the Saints running the table, considering both the Jets and Giants were undefeated when the Saints “entertained” them?
Well, we don’t know what the odds were, but we do know what the results were: The Big Easy has taken a couple of big bites out of the Big Apple!
