It’s hard to believe that December is here and the Saints have yet to face the Atlanta Falcons. The Saints will go on the road in primetime Thursday night to play the Atlanta Falcons. Finally, Who Dat Nation can start the DIRTY BIRD jokes. The Falcons have been a total disappointment this year. One more loss eliminates them from any chance at playoff contention. This is not uncommon, as many of teams that go to the Super Bowl struggle the next year.
Coming into this game, the Saints can really put themselves in position to have a chance to win the division. As an added bonus, the Saints can deliver the knockout punch to the Falcons.
The Saints would love to be the one to eliminate them. The Falcons have added some players from the draft, but the defense has yet to improve in 2017. Almost every time these teams get together, the games seem to go down to the last seconds. This game goes back and forth until DT Nick Fairley makes a huge play sacking Matt Ryan in the end zone for a safety. That one play in the last two minutes makes the difference.
Final: Saints 40 Falcons 38
