Thursday evening, the 8-2, and rolling, New Orleans Saints will hit the road to take on the mightily struggling 2-eight Atlanta Falcons in an NFL South match up.
It’s attention-grabbing how the tables have turned for each of these teams in a yr’s time.
Last season, the Falcons had been those that have been vying for a prime seeding within the NFC, while the Saints have been simply attempting to survive a miserable marketing campaign as they handled not having their head coach, stemming from the infamous bounty scandal.
The Saints are available in to this one winners of their final two following the upset to the Jets a couple of weeks in the past. They obliterated the Dallas Cowboys two Sunday nights in the past and squeaked out a 3-point victory towards the 49ers last week, albeit in controversial style because of the roughing name on the hit from Ahmad Brooks to Drew Brees.
After a victory over the Buccaneers on Oct. 20, the Falcons have misplaced 4 straight and are simply trying to get out of this year in a single piece at this point. None of those last four losses have even been shut, together with Tampa Bay avenging that October loss last week, 41-28. In attempting to make up for the losses on offense, QB Matt Ryan has not been environment friendly in any respect, tossing 12 interceptions to his 18 touchdown passes.
