Saints vs. Falcons

This is one of the fiercest rivalries in the NFL and both teams can’t stand each other.  The offenses for both teams feature good quarterbacks in Drew Brees and Matt Ryan and good receivers so each will score points.  But I think what will determine the winner is which team can make the most plays down the stretch on defense.  And I think it will the Saints.

Winner:   Saints

Score prediction:       28-27  Saints   

Points spread:      Saints  – 3

Over/under:  52 – Over
