Live from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome

By Pat Yasinskas

NEW ORLEANS -- I’m settled into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Detroit Lions' bus just arrived. The players are walking across the field to the locker room.

I’ll be back with inactives and any other pregame news or notes that come along.

Meantime, I’m watching this game between the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. A lot of people have been talking about how the Saints may be close to being as good as the Packers. If Green Bay ends up losing this one, that theory could grow. After all, the Saints blew out the Giants on Monday night.

Of course, the Saints will have to do their part and win against the Lions Sunday night for that argument to even have a chance.
