Thursday Night Open Thread: New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons

Before the season started, this game looked like a premier match up between teams that are on the brink of the playoffs. The Saints struggled out of the gates, though, and are fighting to keep their playoff hopes alive with a 5-6 record.

The 10-1 Falcons are coasting towards a first round playoff bye. Their only loss of the season was in New Orleans against the Saints, so this would be a great time for them to get revenge and all but end the Saints season.

Tonight is a very important game for the Saints, though. They have to pretty much win out to have a chance at the playoffs. Drew Brees has to do what Drew Brees does... put the team on his back. They have to win tonight.
