It's Thursday which means the first game of the week is on. This game has undefeated Falcons (5-0) in New Orleans to face the one-win Saints (1-4). The Falcons are rolling this season with one of the surprise players of the year in running back Devonta Freeman. And of course, they still have Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.
The Saints continue their defensive struggles from last season but have added offensive struggles to that. It's been a while since anyone said the Saints didn't have an elite offense, but time may have caught up with them.
Here is how our staff predicted the winner of this game:
