Yet the Saints are the opponent this week, and they’re rolling, and Atlanta has to go face them during a short week. A win here would be little more than a moral victory, albeit a nectar-sweet moral victory, but it’s not an impossible outcome against a New Orleans team riding a huge wave and due for a weird, random crash. The slim possibility of that is what will keep us all watching if the turkey hasn’t pinned us directly to the couch.
Preamble aside, here’s what you’ll need to know if you’re masochistic enough to watch the game.

Key Questions: Will Deion Jones return to wreak havoc on Drew Brees, and can this Falcons defense stop a New Orleans offense that is producing at an elite level? Can the Falcons shake off two straight weeks of subpar play on offense and put up the points necessary to win?
