Saints vs Falcons

The Saints were able to dominate the matchup a few weeks ago, allowing just three field goals in a 24-9 victory at home. Taysom Hill is doing just fine doing what he does at quarterback – he’s not going to be Aaron Rodgers, and that’s okay – and the defense continues to be dominant.

 

The Saints lead the NFL in both rushing scores and fewest rushing touchdowns allowed. It hasn’t given up more than 100 yards on the ground in the last six games and forced 13 takeaways in the last five.

The offense picked it back up fast after that clunker against the Saints.

As bad as the offense was two weeks ago, that’s how good it was in a dominant 43-6 win over the Raiders – and it was without Todd Gurley and Julio Jones.

The running game still isn’t likely to work, and there won’t be five takeaways, but the defense has seen Hill once – this might be like a baseball team seeing a pitcher the second time through the order – and Matt Ryan and the passing game need to be merely very good. The Saint defensive stats are skewed after playing Denver in last week’s disaster.
