There's plenty of buzz surrounding the New Orleans Saints heading into Week 1. Last season's injury-ridden campaign is behind them, so they're ready to make a major comeback after an offseason to get healthy and bring in noteworthy new pieces.

NBC Sports' Peter King is fully aboard the Saints bandwagon, as evidenced by his 2022 season predictions.

Saints Predictions 2022

King released his projected seeds at the end of the regular season on Monday. He has the Saints at the very top of the NFC, posting a 12-5 record (same as the Green Bay Packers) and claiming the No. 1 seed in the conference. King even sees New Orleans and Green Bay meeting in the NFC Championship Game, but sides with the latter to make the Super Bowl.

Though that's not quite the ending Saints fans would hope for in this scenario, King's predictions should just reinforce the belief that this could be a special year for New Orleans.

Jameis Winston is ready to begin his comeback season in Week 1. Michael Thomas should join him soon after, and he could end up headlining one of the best wide receiver trios in the league with newcomers Jarvis Landry and Chris Olave now in the mix.

New Orleans also made significant additions on defense, signing Marcus Maye and Louisiana native Tyrann Mathieu to bolster its secondary. This unit should wreak havoc against an NFC South division that could field two bottom-dwelling offenses in the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons.

The Saints still have to prove their contender status to the oddsmakers, though. FanDuel Sportbook's NFL odds peg New Orleans as a slight underdog (+118) to make the postseason, but a strong start should see that number change in a hurry.
