New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons 11/28/2019
New Orleans Saints
New Orleans Saints had a close call in their previous matchup versus the Carolina Panthers. They concluded the game with a 34-31 scoreboard. Drew Brees was in top fighting form, going for 30/34 with 311 air yards. He completed 3 thrown TDs and an interception. Latavius Murray took care of ground matters with 7 carries. He rushed 64 yards total and managed to score a rushing touchdown. Michael Thomas was the leader of the catch with 10 receptions pegged at 101 yards.
The Saints were challenged by their opponent’s shifting offense. They were markedly lacking in defense, allowing the opponent to complete 64% of throws. They also conceded 29 rush attempts. These problematic defensive figures almost cost the game for the Saints.
In the tale of the yards, the Saints gained 418 yards versus their opponent’s 351. The Saints had the upper hand in yardage gained, but the opponent caught up in terms of points. The matchup is a reminder for top teams not to underestimate the mettle of the lower-ranked teams.

The Falcons ran out of gas against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during their last matchup. They only posted 22 points versus their opponent’s 35. QB Matt Ryan was going for 23/46 with 271 air yards. He failed to score a thrown TD and concluded the game with a pick. Qadree Ollison was in better shape, carrying the ball 8 times across 20 yards. He scored a rushing touchdown in the process. Calvin Ridley was the receiving leader, catching the ball 6 times for 85 yards.
The Falcons rushed for only 19 out of 80 plays. They were too dependent on the mixed offense tactic. As a consequence, they weren’t able to bring in points as much as their opponent. Once the opponent got wind of their mixed offense, the latter simply refocused defense against throw attempts. In contrast, the Falcons weren’t quite there in terms of defense. They allowed the opponent a 64% completion rate and were powerless to stop 34 rush attempts.
It’s not difficult to see why the Falcons were fated to lose their previous matchup. The use of bad tactics coupled with bad defense is a sure recipe for disaster. The Falcons should train their rush tactics in order to adapt against teams that can shift defensive lines.
