WEEK 14 TNF: NEW ORLEANS SAINTS VS ATLANTA FALCONS

Back again for Thursday night!  It's going to be a good one with serious playoff implications for these two NFC South teams.  New Orleans is trying to keep their spot while Atlanta is trying to get into a wild card position.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS VS ATLANTA FALCONS:

Here we have a divisions battle in NFC South.  The potential for a high scoring game would be expected, but do not look for one.  Look for a pretty good defensive contest.  The Saints have rookie CB Marshon Lattimore and rookie S Marcus Williams back from injury to cover the likes of WRs Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu.  CB Desmond Trufant returns for the Falcons to cover WR Ted Ginn, Jr.   Saints rookie RB Alvin Kamara could get the go ahead if Mark Ingram is unable to play tonight.  Kamara has been no less than amazing to watch on the field.  He is constantly finding ways to get those extra rushing yards.  For the Falcons, RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are going to test New Orleans' defense.  Atlanta is two games back and still trying to recover their rhythm.  New Orleans has had a minor set back, but they have future Hall of Famer, Drew Brees at the helm.  Again, not a high scoring game, but a great game to watch for Thursday night.

I believe it will be a closely scored game.  They will face each other again in a couple of weeks.  The Saints have already swept the Panthers, so things are getting interesting.  It's time to start thinking about who you have going to the Super Bowl.  We will get into that in a few weeks.  Good luck to your teams and picks!
