This game has definite playoff implications as the Saints lead the NFC South division at 9-3 and the Falcons sit as the last wildcard in the NFC at 7-5. With several teams sitting at 6-6 this game is very big for the Falcons playoff chances as there are only four games remaining in the regular season.

New Orleans Saints have a firm grip in the NFC South race as they have beaten the second place Carolina Panthers twice this regular season. Panthers sit second in the NFC South at 8-4 but have already lost the head to head tiebreaker with the Saints. New Orleans bounced back from their six points loss at the LA Rams by beating Carolina last week 31-21 and covering as a 5 ½ point favorite. Saints had a fantastic day on offense by rushing for 148 yards and passing for 252 as they finished the day gaining 400 yards on a good Carolina defense. New Orleans is 3-2 on the road with the other loss coming against the first place team in the NFC North in Minnesota. Two good defensive teams limited the Saints in their road defeats.

Atlanta is 3-3 at home. Some are referring to this season as a Superbowl hangover for the Falcons. Numbers have been better than average for the team on both sides of the field. Atlanta is eighth in both total offense and defense. They do look to bounce back from a 14-9 home defeat to Minnesota last week as the Falcons offense was denied entry into the end zone. Saints are a good defense but not at the level of the Minnesota Vikings. Falcons are capable of making up their two game deficit they have with New Orleans because they will travel to the Saints in Week 16.
