We’re just hours away from the New Orleans Saints kicking off against the Atlanta Falcons to cap off #FalconsHateWeek, and the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles are expecting a win. Vegas has set the betting odds in New Orleans’ favor with a 53-point spread, evidently expecting a shootout. It makes sense considering the Saints offense has averaged 27.6 points-per-game on the road while the Falcons have managed 23 points-per-game while playing hosts. Our rivals over at the Falcoholic are hopeful for a win, while our own staff are expecting the Saints to get back into a winning streak.
Christopher Dunnells: Saints 35, Falcons 27
Both offenses play well against the weaknesses of the opponent. Atlanta struggles containing running backs both catching passes and rushing the ball, so I expect big games from both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.
