"I think they rush the passer very well, and if you get into the third down, (you see) a lot of the things that we saw happen in Seattle (when Quinn was the Seahawks defensive coordinator)".

The Falcons Super Bowl collapse for the ages and the Saints 2017 revival has taken this feud to an entirely different level. The Packers should beat the Cleveland Browns next week to move to 7-6, meaning they'll be in the thick of the NFC playoff race, meaning Rodgers will have more motivation when he returns. The Saints are yielding just 17.9 points in winning nine of their last 10 games.

While both the Saints and Falcons are more balanced than they have been in years past, I think this one ends up being a classic quarterback shootout.

"It's always tough playing New Orleans", Ryan said in an article to ESPN reporter Vaughn McClure. It doesn't get any better than these games in the regular season.

Let's hope Thursday is a party celebrating the death of the Falcons season.

Dating back to 2006 when the NFL Network began airing Thursday Night football games, the Georgia Dome was the site for some unforgettable wins and moments for the Falcons.

He's repeatedly promised to "cooperate completely" with any investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee into his past behavior. After the Politico story hit, six Democratic senators called for Franken to quit, the first of an avalanche of such requests.

I want to pick the Saints so bad.

Also, Atlanta's running backs and receivers are a awful matchup for the improved Saints defense.

The Carolina Panthers could have taken control of the NFC South with a win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon, but too many mistakes in all three phases of the game led to a 31-21 defeat.

Green Bay (-3.5) at Cleveland: People ask me which team I fear the most in the first round if the Saints host a playoff game? The lines opened with a 2 point spread for Atlanta to cover but since then, it has changed to a 1.5 point spread for the Saints to cover.

Rookie corner Marshon Lattimore has more than held his own as the Saints No. 1 corner. Thompson tried to lay out the smaller Kamara instead of wrapping him up, and the running back was able to shake off the hit and reach paydirt.
