Falcons defense vs. Saints offense: Which group wins?

Once again, the Falcons face off against Drew Brees and the Saints, but injuries and depth might spell trouble for Atlanta this week. We are getting closer and closer to that time again, folks. That time where, despite what differences we may all have, we can come together through one common bond: a hatred for the New Orleans Saints. Sunday, the Falcons take on the Saints in a division game with pretty big implications. The Atlanta defense will be tasked with stopping the dynamic New Orleans offense—or at least slowing them down enough to give the Falcons offense a chance to win the...

Intriguing players to watch in Falcons vs. Saints

Will Oluokun take significant snaps on Sunday? Can Ryan and Sarkisian win in a shootout against Brees and Payton? Here are some of the most interesting Falcons’ players to watch when Atlanta takes on New Orleans in Week 3. Week 3 is here, and the Atlanta Falcons (1-1) have a very important early season division game against the hated New Orleans Saints (1-1) coming up on Sunday. A win here would be big confidence booster for an Atlanta team that is weathering some injuries, and put the Saints at 0-2 in the division (with both of those losses being home games). Needless to say, this is a...

Falcons injury update: Julio Jones eases concerns about calf; DEs McKinley, Shelby still out

At least the Jet seems to be okay. As the Falcons get in gear for their first rivalry bout with the Saints in Atlanta Sunday, the injury bug continues to crawl around. Falcondom clutched its pearls when word came in of Julio Jones and a calf injury that held him out of practice Wednesday and Thursday. Though, he spoke with reporters about the issue around missing his second practice and tried to calm any worries it was major. Julio Jones said missing practice yesterday was a precaution. Nothing serious. Said his calf tightened his up during the Panthers win.— Jason Butt...

Fact: Takk McKinley cracks sunflower seeds with his eyelids The Atlanta Falcons are gearing up for their first matchup of the season with their hated divisional rivals, Sean Payton and his merry band of cheating cheaters the New Orleans Saints.

Falcons vs. Saints odds: Atlanta’s a field goal favorite against the team that barely beat the Browns

Will the Falcons win? Vegas thinks they very well might. The Saints and Falcons have not had their ideal starts to the season. Both teams are 1-1, but the Falcons have suffered massive attrition and an ugly loss, albeit one to the team that won the Super Bowl last year. The Saints are dealing with some injuries, too, but more than that they’re just not playing the caliber of football many, including myself, expected of them in the early going. These two teams meet this week, and with history as our guide, I think it’s fair to expect it to be a close, nerve-wracking contest. The...

Cam Jordan has a high opinion of Julius Peppers

The New Orleans Saints’ defensive end could not stop talking about the all-time great in the Carolinas A lot has been made this season of Julius Peppers and his limited impact on limited snaps. Let’s not forget that the 37 year old player is entering his 17th year in the league while also rehabbing from offseason surgery to repair an injured shoulder. Take it from one of his biggest division rivals, Cam Jordan. He ranked Peppers as the 7th best player in the NFC South today.
