    Atlanta Falcons (5-9) at New Orleans Saints (6-8)The Saints recently won 20 straight home games with Sean Payton and Drew Brees, covering in almost all of them (18-1-1 ATS), but they’ve since lost 4 straight games at home, all as favorites. On the season, they are just 2-5 ATS at home and oddly enough they are 4-3 ATS on the road. The Saints certainly aren’t the auto-bet at home they used to be, but it’s worth mentioning how much of an advantage they’ve had in the Superdome in recent years.The Falcons, meanwhile, typically struggle on the road, especially over the past 2 seasons, goi…

Here are five reasons to feel confident that the Saints can beat the Falcons. 5.) History is on their side Home field may not feel like an advantage this year, but history says the home team in the Falcons/Saints matchup is on the fast track to winning.

    Does the NFC South deserve to have a team in the playoffs?  I may be in the minority (Brady Quinn agrees with me http://www.footballbyfootball.com/column/nfc-south-is-rising-no-playoff-change-needed), but I believe it does.  Every team sets goals during training camp and one of those goals is to win the division. Therefore, a division title has to mean something.  It means you’ve earned the right to participate in the playoffs. With two games, remaining, the New Orleans Saints are 6-8 and shockingly in control of their own destiny. That’s all a team can ask for in December.  But aren'…

If it’s a three-step drop, the ball goes here. If it’s a five-step drop, the ball goes there. And my sense from afar, watching the film, is that Jay Cutler is not that kind of precision quarterback for that offense. [ Join FanDuel.com's $2M Week 16 fantasy league: $25 to enter; top…

  • Goodbye To All That
    This is my last post here, because I'm done with the NFL. So let's get one thing straight from the beginning: this is not a response to the Saints' loss at Seattle. Actually, I had been planning something like this for quite a long time, to be posted after the last game of the season—whatever that game was, however it ended. This is all about the damnable behavior of the so-called men behind the current NFL.

  • Carolina In My Mind
    Three and out. Savor those words. Let them sink into your brain and emboss their shape on your cortex. Three and out. The phrase describes almost perfectly the course of this, one of the epic losses in the long, tawdry history of New Orleans Saints losses. It describes the Carolina offense, which was helpless until it wasn't. It describes the Saints' offense, which needed just ten yards to seal a victory already won, and instead gained no yards at all. I wonder: does it describe the end of our season?

    The Saints' loss to the Seahawks was so one-sided, so crushing a defeat, it seemed there must be shell craters on the New Orleans sideline. It wouldn't have surprised me to hear that Sean Payton had shot himself to avoid capture. But even so, it left behind unanswered questions: were the 2013 Saints nothing but a mirage? Or are the Seahawks really this good?

  • State of the 2014 Saints
    It's the mark of a poor leader, one captaining a defense ranked 31st in points per drive and 32nd in yards per drive, during one of the more disappointing seasons in Saints' history, to take cheap shots at two Saints' defensive players instrumental in the Saints' lone Super Bowl title.If you're looking for reasons why the Saints have underachieved this year, this is a good place to start:http://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/2014/12/junior_galette_2.html

What was once championship promise has been all but been extinguished, the result of inevitability coupled with an old, familiar problem.Sprinkle in what appears to be an undercurrent of torpor, and you get 4-6.   First, the new issue: Drew Brees is no longer great enough to elevate the Saints. This isn't to blame Brees for the Saints' misfortunes this year. But it's a primary reason why the Payton-era Saints have started to noticeably fade. Over their last 20 regular season games, the Saints have produced a middling record of 10-10. This…

    Nothing kills quite as assuredly as does apathy.And right now, the Saints are an apathetic mess. After four weeks, it's difficult to maintain hope that it will get significantly better for the Saints this season. On offense, the Saints look passive and nonthreatening. On defense, they look confused and unmotivated. And overshadowing the whole affair is whether we're now watching the slow death of the Payton/Brees era. Nine seasons in, and it's a fair question to ask. If that's the case, what exactly are we witnessing right now? A temporary bump in the road? Or the inexorable fade to black? Of…

Should he sign a contract with a new team, the Saints, if they choose not to match the offer, would receive two first-round draft picks as compensation for losing Graham.Likely before any (meaningful) negotiations take place, however, there is the issue of whether Graham will be designated as a tight end or a wide receiver.

    It may not be pretty, but Panthers are one win from making playoffs

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- They've won only six games, at least three less than any other division leader. Their quarterback is playing with two broken bones in his back suffered in a scary automobile accident 12 days ago. One of their best defensive players has been at home since before the third game awaiting a 2015 trial for domestic violence.Yet come Sunday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, the Carolina Panthers (6-8-1) will play the Falcons (6-9) for the NFC South title and a home playoff game.

    Defense solid against Packers, but Bucs need much more than that

    TAMPA, Fla. -- Last January, when he was hired to coach the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lovie Smith shared one of his most basic philosophies of football. He said if you play strong defense and are solid on special teams, you basically are starting out with an 8-8 record.It sounded good at the time, but Sunday's 20-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers at Raymond James Stadium ran roughshod over Smith's theory.The Bucs (2-13) played good defense -- like they've done for a good chunk of the season -- and still didn't stand a chance.

    NEW ORLEANS -- The biggest moment of the New Orleans Saints' 30-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons came when tight end Jimmy Graham lost a fumble at the goal line early in the fourth quarter that appeared to be a touchdown on the replay.The ball appeared to cross the plane before it was stripped away by Falcons safety Kemal Ishmael. But referee John Parry told a pool reporter from The Times-Picayune that he didn't see "clear and indisputable" evidence to overturn the original call.

    NEW ORLEANS -- A few thoughts on the New Orleans Saints' 30-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome:What it means: The Saints (6-9) are done. They were officially eliminated from playoff contention with their loss and the Carolina Panthers' win. And they have their offense to blame.Drew Brees, Jimmy Graham and the offensive line all came up small with one of their worst performances yet in their biggest game to date -- against the NFL's 32nd-ranked defense, no less.

Their win against Cleveland, along with Atlanta's win at New Orleans, sets up a showdown next Sunday in the Georgia Dome between Carolina and Atlanta (6-9) for the NFC South title. One thing is clear: If the Panthers go on to repeat as division champion, there's a good chance it won't be pretty if their last two wins are an indication.

He'd be silly to think anything else. That being said, Smith can't afford to hold back in this game. When the Falcons have a chance to score inside the Saints' 10-yard line, Smith can't settle for a field goal -- not even on fourth down.
