The Atlanta Falcons look to improve to 8-0 when they take on NFC South rivals New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. Atlanta is off to its hottest start in franchise history and remains the only undefeated team in the NFL. New Orleans is coming off a Monday Night Football win against the Philadelphia Eagles, which made the Saints winners of three of their last four games.
This is the first of two match-ups between the division opponents.
The Falcons can make it a long day for the Saints' defense, which has been shredded on the ground and through the air so far this season. New Orleans gives up the most rushing yards per game, and is ranked No. 29 in opposing passing yards.
Atlanta has one of the more dynamic wide receiver combinations in the league with Julio Jones and Roddy White, and quarterback Matt Ryan has to be in the MVP conversation. Michael Turner runs the ball for the Falcons. Turner has 517 yards and four touchdowns on the season.
Drew Brees has 50 straight games of throwing a touchdown pass, but the Saints have battled injuries to key receivers throughout the season.
