NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A Monday in New Orleans isn't as challenging to over come when the run up a 'w' the day before.

"Of course I'm gonna say all the way to the Super Bowl," said Renee Augustus, a very optimistic fan.

Treading into confident territory, some fans won't shy away from bold claims, especially riding on such a high, and there's no denying that feeling of being a step about the rest, like the 'dirty birds.'

"I think we're getting better every week -- and the Falcons are getting worse -- oh don't even start with the Falcons," converted Saints fan, Bobbi Brothers said.

During a game that walked a fine line, Monday's boastful march didn't come without its missteps.

"I hate the cliffhangers," said Steve Lindsley, another Saints fan.

"I was a little upset at first because we was up by 21 and then we let em' come back," Augustus added.

The road won't get any easier next week, the Saints will take on the Chiefs in Missouri then return on week 8 to face the Seahawks at the Superdome.

    Another cold front on its way!Another cold front on its way!

    For the rest of today, we will see mostly sunny skies with no chance for any rain. You will need a jacket as you head out the door because temperatures will still not warm up very much. Highs this afternoon are only going to be in the mid 60s. After sunset, we will quickly fall into the 50s, eventually back into the 40s again. By tonight, we will have clear skies with rain chances down to zero. Temperatures will cool down to the low to mid 40s tonight.
