(AP) — The New Orleans Saints have won more regular-season games since 2017 than any NFL team, and players have openly said they view the 2020 campaign as Super Bowl or bust.

Most top contributors remain with the three-time-defending NFC South champions, and many are still in their prime.

Much hinges on whether 41-year-old all-time passing leader Drew Brees continues to play well behind a relatively young interior line.

Another factor is whether a talented secondary coalesces around the leadership of recently acquired veteran safety Malcolm Jenkins.

If so, New Orleans could return to its first Super Bowl in a decade.
