New Orleans Saints
The Saints come marching in with a 1-1 record. New Orleans kicked the season off with a dramatic 48-40 loss to Tampa Bay at home. This past weekend, the franchise rebounded against the Cleveland Browns 21-18. All things considered, it wasn’t much of a rebound considering they almost lost the game. And although they came through in the end, they didn’t look like a team that’s playoff bound. Furthermore, the Saints really need to clean things up if they are to stand a chance of winning the division. The Falcons are giving up 233 passing yards per game and around 21 points so we can expect New Orleans offense to be firing on all cylinders this Sunday. However, their defense will need to pull through if they are to win this rivalry.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (682 passing yards, 5 TD, 0 INT), Alvin Kamara (75 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (269 receiving yards, 3 TD, 28 REC).
The Falcons fly into this contest sporting a 1-1 record as well. The franchise raked in its first win of the 2018 season this past Sunday. The club was facing the Carolina Panthers at home and won a hard fought battle 31-24. Although the Falcons haven’t looked tremendous so far into the season, they haven’t looked bad. Sure they lost 18-12 to the Eagles in their opener, but they were facing the reigning Super Bowl champions on the road. On top of that, the Falcons picked up a crucial division win over a tough Carolina team this past weekend. Now they’ll be facing the Saints at home and could put themselves in a great position by picking up another divisional win.
Players to Watch: Matt Ryan (523 passing yards, 2 TD, 2 INT), Tevin Coleman (126 rushing yards, 1 TD, 1 F), and Julio Jones (233 receiving yards, 0 TD, 15 REC).
