New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons Pick & Preview

New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons Pick & Preview: I know Matt Ryan played a terrible game last week in his chance to show he can still play. But I also know that any quarterback can have a bad game, and the Eagles weird defenses can give any guy a lot of trouble. I know that the Falcons have been a good home team for some time, and that’s been pretty consistent this year (sans last week’s game against the Eagles). Matt Ryan is almost surely out another week, but I think Redman will play just fine. He has proven in the past that he can make all the throws, and he’s had success.

Giving up 10 points to the Falcons at home is just too much. I know they’re missing two of the biggest reasons why they’ve turned their poor play around over the last couple years, but this team can win without Michael Turner (who still might play) and Matty Ice. They still have playmakers all over the field, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, and even Jerious Norwood can do a lot with a little space.

The Saints have been amazing all year long, and it’s hard to believe that Atlanta will be able to slow that high powered offense down at all – but New Orleans has been winning quite a few games they haven’t played well enough to win in – and luck is bound to run out one of these times. An undefeated season is almost unheard of, and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if they threw up a stinker.Either way, I like this game to stay close. I think the Falcons score in the high 20s, maybe even get to the 30s – and if that’s the case, it will be tough for the Saints to cover.

New Orleans Saints @ Atlanta Falcons (+10.5)
