The last time that the Saints and the Falcons showed up on the same field together, points were flying all over the place. QB Matt Ryan threw for over 400 yards and three TDs, but for the first time in his career, he actually lost when he threw for at least three scores, as QB Drew Brees and company were able to fend off a late charge to come up with what, at the time, looked like a season defining ‘W’. This one just means a whole heck of a lot more to the Saints than it does to the Falcons, and it really looks like Atlanta is set to get clipped one of these days. The team hasn’t scored more than 23 points in a home game since September 30th, and the offense has really struggled at times over the course of the last two weeks. This is a game that is there for the taking for the Saints, who are hoping to get back to .500 and back in a position where they can get into the playoffs, perhaps to set up a third and decisive showdown between these arch rivals.
Saints @ Falcons Pick: New Orleans Saints +3.5
New Orleans @ Atlanta Score Prediction: New Orleans 28 – Atlanta 20
