Let’s play with some numbers. Take the number 8 and the number 2. Its funny how things can change in a year. At this time last season the Atlanta Falcons were 8-2 and among the best teams in the NFL while the New Orleans Saints were sitting at 2-8 mired in a frustrating season of failure.
In tonight’s match-up, the two teams have switched places and switched the same two numbers around. The visiting Saints are flying high at 8-2 and while the Falcons are struggling at an incredibly frustrating 2-8. Here’s the good news for us football fans, anytime these two divisional rivals meet it’s an insanely good football game - on a scale of 10, it’s a 10!. In our reading of tonights numbers 2+8 =10. 8+2=10. No matter how you add it up, tonights football game will be a 10!
Don't count the Falcons out though. QB Matt Ryan, RB Steven Jackson and WR Roddy White can be awesome.
For the Saints, QB Drew Brees, TE Jimmy Graham and WR Marques Colston will be looking to keep their hot streak alive.
Should be a great game! Watch tonight at 8:25pm ET on NFL Network.
