The Saints have a legitimate chance to return to the Super Bowl. They have all the right offensive pieces in place to make another run. Here are some projected match-ups for America's favorite television event

Saints vs. Colts

I know what you're thinking. What are the chances of this happening again? Alright, it is a rare chance, but it is a possibility.

Vikings vs. Ravens

If Sidney Rice can return to health, this could be the top projection most analysts can make. The Ravens have turned into a super-team all the sudden and the Vikings have a very balanced and deep team.

Falcons vs. Ravens

The Falcons are a rising power in the N.F.L. There is no doubt about it.

Cowboys vs. Ravens

Let's assume the Cowboys are the NFC East Champions. They would probably be the most tested team in the NFC. They are in a rugged division after all.

Packers vs. Patriots

This would have everyone buzzing! Aaron Rodgers and Greg Jennings vs. Tom Brady and Randy Moss. Who wouldn't tune in to watch this?

Packers vs. Bengals

Cincinnati could be in the Super Bowl talk so long as Carson Palmer doesn't continue to decline. He has Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, which is a great situation to be in.

These are just a few projections to go by. There could be other teams that make noise in the regular season and can position themselves for a shot at the Super Bowl. This is a little something to get your brains going.
