The Atlanta Falcons have a chance to basically clinch the NFC South with a win over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football. Standing in their way is a Saints team that handed the Falcons their only loss this year, in a Week 10 shootout in which both quarterbacks threw three touchdowns. More fireworks are expected Thursday Night, as both offenses are ranked in the top of the league, and both defenses have shown weakness in recent weeks.
Falcons Offense vs. Saints Defense
Tony Gonzalez, Julio Jones, Roddy White, Michael Turner, Jacquizz Rodgers, and on and on, the Atlanta Falcons have many dangerous weapons. Yet, the ebb and flow of this team goes with Matt Ryan. The Falcons outstanding quarterback is 3rd in the league in completions, and 2nd in the league in completion percentage.
