Atlanta Falcons @ New Orleans Saints Open Thread



The Falcons are heading to New Orleans today to beat the Saints. I dunno about you, but I love a game against a divisional rival, especially if it's one I think we have a chance of winning.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this one plays out, especially since pretty much everyone is expecting a shootout. If the Falcons' secondary shows up early and often, this might be more fun than anticipated.

Chances are pretty good that I'm going to miss most of this game due to work, so I'll need you guys to keep it going in my absence. Make me proud, after the jump!

Who? Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints, 1 p.m. ET

Where? Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana

Weather? Should be sunny and possibly warm.

Fun Fact? The Falcons won the matchup earlier this season. That's the very definition of fun for me!

Injuries? Whole host of questionables from the official site, but only Brent Grimes is really unlikely to play in my opinion. Check the rest out on the site, and view in dismay the relatively small number of Saints. Keep in mind also that they've got a few guys on injured reserve, though.

Odds? New Orleans over Atlanta (which is stupid) 3.0, Over/Under 51.5

Foe? You all know Dave from Canal Street Chronicles, who will be rooting hard against our beloved birds. Feel free to occupy the game thread over there as long as you're not too obnoxious, and don't forget to remind them that the Falcons are currently sporting a pretty nifty record.

GO FALCONS! Let'stear the halos off of these Saints!
