New Orleans Saints (6-9) at Atlanta Falcons (8-7)
Nobody wants their team to lose, especially to a hated divisional rival like that team up north. It’s been a rough year for Saints fans and any win is welcome. That we can finish out the year with a clean sweep of Atlanta could be a bit of redemption.
However, a victory would mean moving from a shot at the eighth overall pick to a potential coin-flip situation with Buffalo for the sixteenth or seventeenth overall pick.
Who to root for: New Orleans, because I can’t bring myself to want Atlanta to win. But if things do go badly for us on Sunday then I’m more than happy with the conciliation prize of a better draft pick.
