The New Orleans Saints are coming off of a shocking loss in Week 14 that ended their nine-game winning streak. However, they can still clinch the NFC South division as soon as this week. Here is what needs to go down in Week 15 for that to happen.

First off, the Saints (10-3) can clinch the division with a victory against the Kansas City Chiefs (12-1) this Sunday. Beating the AFC's current No. 1 seed will be no easy task, but the Saints are 5-1 at home this season. New Orleans heads into this matchup as 3.5-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.

Let's say the Saints lose in Week 15. They can still clinch the division if the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also lose in Week 15. The Buccaneers (8-5) take on a divisional opponent in the Atlanta Falcons (4-9) on Sunday afternoon. Tampa Bay is currently a 6-point favorite in this game, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.

This would be the Saints' fourth straight division title. It would also be their seventh NFC South title of all-time, which remains the highest number in the division. The Saints have enjoyed a ton of success over the past few years, and it looks like that'll continue this season.
