Falcons @ Saints Preview and Pick ]]> include($base_url . “/includes/header.htm”); ?>
Atlanta Falcons (4-2) at New Orleans Saints (6-0)
The New Orleans Saints return home with a perfect record after their miraculous comeback last week in Miami. Drew Brees has completed over 67% of his passes with 14 touchdowns and a 106.9 QB rating. There seems to be no stopping him or this Saints offense again this year. The Falcons come in 8th in the NFL allowing only 19 points a game. Quarterback Matt Ryan is having a good year for Atlanta completing almost 63% of his passes and a 90.2 QB rating. The line is moving heavy towards the Saints at home. I believe Michael Turner will have a big game and the Falcons will keep the Saints offense off the field as much as possible. Take the Falcons to cover the dozen points they are getting. I have a hard time ever laying double-digits in a division game. Take the Chargers yesterday for instance. They were favored by 16 over the pathetic Raiders and only won by 8.
Pick: Atlanta +12
