The New Orleans Saints are one of the best teams in the league this season, earning a 10-2 record to this point. Their season could've been derailed by an injury suffered to star quarterback Drew Brees in Week 10, but the team has kept on rolling with Taysom Hill filling in at starter.

The Saints enter Week 14 with a matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles on the schedule, who are sporting a new starting QB of their own. FanDuel Sportsbook has New Orleans as comfy 6.5-point favorites in that game, and most people see a Saints win as likely.

A victory would be New Orleans' fourth straight, but even more notably, it would earn them the NFC South crown once again. And that's not the only way they can clinch the division.

So even if the Saints lose on Sunday, a loss by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14 (or a tie by both teams in their games) will still give New Orleans the division.

The Bucs have a matchup against the Minnesota Vikings this week, with Tampa Bay as 6.5-point home favorites. New Orleans might not get help from the Buccaneers this week, but as long as they take care of business on their own against the Eagles, they'll take home the NFC South.

The Saints have won the NFC South eight times in their franchise's history, inlcluding the last three seasons.
