    If the Saints went winless after three games, their playoff hopes were almost down to zero. So the Black and Gold responded with a huge win on the road, keeping postseason thoughts clearly in focus after a 34-13 win. "There is that sense of urgency. Often times in our league those are important things to know. I think we had a good week of practice. We had some good things early on happen.
