The New Orleans Saints will be back in the Mercedes Benz Superdome today when they host the Detroit Lions.  The Saints are coming off of a huge offensive explosion last week.

The Saints beat up the LA Rams last we posting 49 points on the team.  The win improved the black and gold to a 5-6 recorded and they are still in the playoff hunt.

Of Course the boys from the big easy will need to keep winning to stay in the wild card hunt.  The Lions are coming into New Orleans on a three game winning streak.

Detroit is 7-4 on the season and have beaten the Vikings twice and the jaguars in the past three weeks and are sitting in first place in the NFC North standings.

So this will be a huge game for both teams.  The Saints look to stay in the wild card hunt and the Lions look to stay on top of their division.

The Saints and Lions kick off at noon today and the game will be televised on FOX.  if you can't be by a television then you can  here the game right here starting at 10:00 a.m. with the pregame show on Gator 99.5.
