Kristian: Falcons are due to beat the Saints

Adjustments: 

Without the benefit of a lot of practice time, both the Saints and Falcons will rely on what they do well - and not particularly game planning - in tonight's game.  The Saints were very successful offensively in the week 10 match against the Dirty Birds up in the Superdome, running and throwing the football.  The Falcons, however, couldn't get their running game going in the last meeting.  I would expect the Falcons to come out trying to get that established tonight.  Drew Brees told me this game will be about "reacting to what you're getting and making quick adjustments."  Coach Joe Vitt echoed similar thoughts, "This game will be about execution, and physicality more so than game planning." The Saints have the advantage in this area.
 

Right Tackle: 

William Robinson will get the start at right offensive tackle if Zach Strief (groin) can not play tonight against the Dirty Birds.  Strief is officially listed as questionable.  Vitt said, "We have a couple of options if that's the case."  Vitt didn't elaborate on those options, but you can expect the offense to chip on coming rushers with a back and some double teams from the tight end position.  If New Orleans can run the football well tonight, it will go a long way in helping Will Robinson in pass protection.
 

Prediction: 
 
The Saints have owned the falcons (11-2) since Brees and Payton arrived in New Orleans.  That includes the 31 to 27 week 10 Saints win this season.  For that reason, I'm picking the Falcons.  They're just due.  Atlanta can clinch the division tonight with a win over the Saints.  I don't like it, but I see this ending with the Falcons winning 34-30 in another close one over New Orleans.

I totally disagree in who's due. The Saints are for all those forty years in the desert of not making playoffs and mostly loosing, and I do think Atlanta probably leads the overall series including one year they beat the Saints one year 63-7. Unless you got a vision from the Lord Jesus, you actually do see anything in the way of a score. If the good Lord Jesus says the same as me the Saints will win. After all this suffering of Bounty-gate for alleged crimes. Coaches suspended or in process of serving suspensions and our GM as well. We have suffered enough. So I say the Saints are due for a win and some happiness.

Falcons 38 Saints 21 This will be a rout. Saints are done after this one. At best the Saints will end the season at 6-10. The Falcons will be back in New Orleans for the Superbowl . The ATL will take over the Crescent City. Who Dat?

Nice meeting you on the plane Devil Dog. You called this one. Brees just not the same without Peyton on the sideline. As for you Mr. ATL, keep dreaming s-ball, Atlanta is a paper tiger team, your team will be one and done in the playoffs, bank on it.
