Hard to go anywhere but up after last year. The Falcons have one of the better offenses in the league and were still held to under twenty points. That said I think the difference in the scoreboard was more attributable to Falcon offensive miscues then consistent defensive play on the Saints part. Not worried. If anything it was the offense that looked a bit sluggish. In mid-season form they'd have probably replaced two of those field goals with touchdowns.

I think they did great,much improved from last season,and there isn't a D that won't give up the big play from time to time.They held the dirty birds to 17 points,a team that was in the top 5 in power rankings,they had Ryan on the run for a good part of the game,there isn't a D in the NFL at can pitch a shutout every weekend...get a grip!
