It’s time for the Falcons and Saints to hold the first of their twice annual brutal wars. This first Falcons and Saints battle will take place in the Louisiana Superdome this Sunday and it should be a doozy. It always is but in the last couple of years this game has taken on special significance as both teams have taken big strides and become winners in the NFL.
The Atlanta Falcons got on track last week with a big win over the Arizona Cardinals. Matt Ryan was sharp and Michael Turner had a big day. The offense the Falcons were supposed to have showed up. What’s the better news? If you watched Monday Night Football you saw Frank Gore tear up a Saints defense that didn’t seem to be able to stop the run. The key for the Falcons this week is pounding Michael Turner and not committing turnovers. It also won’t hurt that Reggie Bush is out for the next six weeks. That takes a major problem away from the Falcons defense.
