Just move the decimal over one spot - 25. ATL blew a 25 point lead in the Super Bowl.

re: Atlanta is favored by 2.5
ATL offense is best in league? LOL.

I mean on paper they look great but their stats are not over the top this year, especially in the passing game. I can see us losing tonight but saying ATL has best offense this year is a bit comical IMO

Is there something we aren’t seeing here? With Lattimore and Ingram playing I don’t see how we lose tonight.


Thursday night game at their place, & they're fighting for their playoff lives. If Armstead doesn't play, I'd say that they're the favorite.

Atlanta has actually been playing pretty good the last 6 games. Their offense shite the bed against a great Vikings defense last week, but their defense held them to 14 points. The Patriots are the only team to beat them by a comfortable margin all year.

I think we can win, but I'd be surprised if they didn't give us a hell of a game.

Also, if we can't stop their running game (which we should be able to)...it's probably lights out.

from a vegas standpoint, when the 'lesser regarded' team is favored, it's usually an uh oh, and they frequently win big; plus all of your other points are spot on; additionally the saints d has thrived when playing an inaccurate qb, but struggled against good ones

Saints are undefeated when Davante Harris is not in the starting lineup.

Saints are undefeated when Ken Crawley is in the starting lineup.

Saints are one of the best defenses in the league when Ken Crawley and Marshon Lattimore are on the field together.

re: Atlanta is favored by 2.5
Atlanta has all the pieces to be one of the best offenses in the league. I know we’ve been great with Lattimore/Crawley but their run together coincided with a run of us playing mediocre QB’s. Every time we’ve played an elite passing game one of them has been out. So it’s a chicken/egg thing.

re: Atlanta is favored by 2.5
If you look at both seasons objectively the saints should blow out the falcons, they’ve struggled all season minus the Packers beat down.(with Rodgers) However this is a division rivalry game between two teams that know each other well. Atlanta is at home therefore they are favored. They are also playing for their season.

So Kyle Shanahan gets no credit for that offense anymore?

I've read the comments on this thread and if you think Atlanta has a chance in this game, get off the bandwagon. We are an elite team and I don't see us losing anymore games.

Thursday night game on the road, we played the late slot on Sunday. Big divisional game on the road. The saints are 3-2 on Sunday night games against the division over the past few years. And they score around 20 points. Things don't look good for the black and gold tonight.

The saints have been 7-9 and with a horrible defense the last few years. How does this relate?

Honestly, the falcons have played better in recent weeks, but it’s not like they’ve played a murderer’s row in that time.

They are 4-2 in their last 6 games with 3/4 wins coming against teams with no running game and while Dallas is a Good rushing team in ranking, they were missing their stud running back in that game.

That’s what people aren’t realizing.

Atlanta’s back is against the wall. They absolutely must win to keep a sniff of hope alive for division or even wild card.

That is not what trap game means. Trap game is when you are playing an inferior opponent that you think you will beat to look forward to the following opponent. There is no way we overlook the Falcons to prepare for the Jets.

Regardless the line, 3 points is usually given to the home team.

I've already penciled this one in as an L. atlanta is at home and fighting for their lives and the saints have been sluggish of late sans the carolina game.

No way you can get up to 13? Would be shitty if they lost by 13.
