It’s a must-win game for the Atlanta Falcons as they head into New Orleans to take on the Saints this Sunday.
And there’s already been a bit of trash talk between the two bitter rivals.
At the half, the Atlanta Falcons were down 31-7 to the Green Bay Packers, and it looked like the game was slated to get worse in the second half.
Patrick Peterson said he wanted Julio Jones one-on-one.
Be careful what you wish for.
It’s division leader versus division leader as the Atlanta Falcons host the Arizona Cardinals, who have the best record in the NFC at 9-2.
On the other hand, the 4-7 Falcons made NFL history by being the first team to ever lead a division while being three games under .500.
I took more time than usual to put this recap together because I couldn’t figure out what to say about this Atlanta Falcons team.
And it’s not as if there’s a shortage of things to say. Any unflattering adjective fits the bill.
It’s strange to say, but the 4-6 Atlanta Falcons are leading the NFC South.
With a 19-17 win over the Carolina Panthers coupled with a New Orleans Saints 27-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Falcons are sitting atop the division.
