The New Orleans Saints will find out just how close they are to being the best team in the NFL when they take on the 8-0 Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.


The Saints have won six straight games and face hands-down their toughest challenge yet as they welcome the undefeated Rams to New Orleans.


The Rams are one of the only teams who can keep pace with New Orleans' high-powered offense, but the Saints have one other big advantage on Sunday -- a truly spectacular home-field advantage.

To win 22 straight games at anything is impressive, but in a league that prides itself on parody, it's unreal. Sure, the Saints lost Week 1 at home in a shootout to Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but this stat is just too good to ignore.

This streak essentially says "when the Saints are good, they win at home." It makes sense since good teams are usually very good at home, but 22 in a row is three season's worth of home games (eight a year).

The Rams will prove one of the biggest challenges the Saints have ever faced at home during this streak, but no matter which way this game goes, New Orleans can rely on its fans to make some noise on Sunday.
