The New Orleans Saints have four games remaining in the 2022 regular season and fans are so glad that this season is almost over. It's been a rough year for the black and gold, as they lost their long-time head coach back in January and his replacement, Dennis Allen, has not been a good successor.

With just four games left before the disastrous 2022 season is finally in the books, let's look at the final four games and determine how we think they'll turn out.

Week 15 vs Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons will be eager to get revenge after the Saints stunned them back in Week 1 with an epic come-from-behind win in the fourth quarter. That was one of the few exciting moments for this team in 2022 and the Falcons are clearly going to be motivated to win this one and embarrass NOLA in their home stadium.

Atlanta will be rolling out third-round rookie quarterback Desmond Ridder to make his first NFL start on Sunday and that's the only reason I'd consider leaning toward picking the Saints in this one. Let's be real though -- This defense has had a really tough time slowing down mobile quarterbacks and Ridder is a mobile quarterback, dating back to his days at Cincinnati.

This will be a close game but I don't see New Orleans pulling it off.

Prediction: Saints lose 24-21
