Rapid Reaction: Saints 30, Chiefs 20


Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

As bad as it's been -- and it's been horrible at times -- the New Orleans Saints' season isn't over.

The team that seems to pull out a win every time the bottom seems to be ready to fall out has done it again. The Saints are 5-5.

Sure, they might have to win at least five of their final six games to have any shot at the playoffs. But the fact they still have that shot is something of an accomplishment. This team's been through a ton of injuries, a brutal road trip to London and had the possibilities of some key suspensions hanging around for a while.

They won on the road for the first time all season and, now, they have a chance to catch a break. For the first time in 42 days, the Saints will play in the Superdome when they host Green Bay in a Monday night game Nov. 24.

At least for the moment, that game still matters.
