at home with the playoff seed on the line the Falcons D will get the turnover that wins the game.
The Falcons will win I think 28-21. The reason why is because the Falcons have great Defense and okay offense the Saints hav okay offense and horrible defense so this is my prediction
The second meeting marks yet another face-off between these two all-time rivals this year, and even though the Falcons have made significant changes to their O and D Lines the Saints are still a ways ahead of them. The Falcons' time is coming, but not this year, the Saints will take this season from the Falcons. I predict the second meeting to be Saints: 28 to Falcons: 24.
Matt Ryan will be the Saints biggest fear here, but the Saints Defensive Coordinator will do his best to put an end to that quickly while the Falcons are doing the same to the Saints rushing game. I believe this game will be decided on two or three bad plays on the Falcons behalf. The score I predict will be Saints 24 to Falcons: 21.
