The Saints sit atop the NFC South with a 7-2 record, currently riding a 7-game win streak. They're coming off their most impressive victory of the season, thrashing the Bills on the road. 

With a hot start, the Who-Dats are dreaming of a Super Bowl in February. But the fans aren't the only ones prognosticating a title run. National media finally think the Saints can be contenders after beating up on Buffalo. Saints Head Coach Sean Payton thinks it's way too early for playoff talk.

"We talk about the realities of today each week. The understanding that we're just past the midway point of the season, and yet the experts will be talking playoff, Super Bowl. It's the craziest stuff ever. Tune it out, laugh at it. There's so much more we have to do and accomplish. We just to look at it like we have been. With a win the day approach. Practice well, preparation, and get ready for this game. The other stuff can be toxic," said Payton.

The Saints host Washington on Sunday.
