Now the real season begins.

The Saints surely would have loved to get into the postseason with a home game in hand, but they’ll take the berth they got and play wherever they must.

And that means a game in Philadelphia, where it’s supposedly always sunny. Saturday night, when the Saints (11-5) play at Philly (10-6), the weather is supposed to be 28 degrees and cloudy by game time.

But that’s a story for another time.

For now, let’s take a look at some of the key league rankings and how they compare.
