The Falcons will host New Orleans on Thursday night, and the Saints are a unanimous selection to come away with the win. There was no variation among SB Nation's NFL experts, with all six picking New Orleans to improve to 9-2.

New Orleans is a popular pick and it goes beyond their superior record. The Saints have a talent advantage and plenty to play for this week. Not only is Carolina right on the Saints' heels in the NFC South race, but New Orleans is chasing Seattle in the race for home-field advantage. The Saints travel to Seattle next week, and a win on Thursday would set up a matchup of 10-1 Seattle and 9-2 New Orleans.
SB Nation's NFL experts aren't the only ones picking the Saints. All eight of CBS Sports' NFL analysts also picked New Orleans. Most expect the Saints to win big as well, with only one of the eight taking Atlanta to cover the 7.5-point spread.
