Key matchups for the Saints against rival Falcons
1 of 7
The Saints play the Falcons on Monday night. Here are the key matchups that the Saints must win to have success.
The Saints are 0-2, and every day the injury report is looking more and more like a joke. Despite the record and the slew of injuries, there’s hope in the Saints camp.
On Monday night, the Falcons come to town. Atlanta dropped their first game to the Bucs but last week beat the Raiders to come to 1-1. It was tough to watch them beat Oakland after the Saints heartbreaking loss in Week 1. But that doesn’t give the Falcons any bragging rights. Those rights will go to the winner on Monday.
Many of the matchups look favorable for the Saints, but some of the most glaring mismatches are in Atlanta’s favor. Here’s my breakdown of the key matchups that the Saints must win, if they want any success on Monday.
