Monday Night Football: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints

A good old fashion NFC South brawl for those of us who have no interest in Presidential politics in 2016. It’s the Atlanta Falcons at the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? IDGAF, because there is NFL football to watch. Actually, I’m a Libertarian, so I have no reason to watch personally. My guy got screwed again. I’ll catch the gaffs on in the morning.

Looking over my Week 3 picks again, I am a healthy 10-5 and a New Orleans Saints win tonight would be even better. The Atlanta Falcons have the talent, but they never seem to figure it out under the dome in Louisiana.

These teams know each other well, so I doubt the score gets too crazy. It should be a close affair with Drew Brees putting the Saints on top late and Matt Ryan losing the ice in his veins to send the Falcons home packing.

Prediction: Saints 31, Falcons 27
