We knew the Saints had one of the better defenses in the NFL and they kept the game close, until it wasn’t. Like most of the season, the Dolphins offense was inconsistent but had a couple good drives to get points on the board.

With this win, the Dolphins hold the #7 seed in the playoffs and if they win out, they will make the postseason.
