The 6-3 New Orleans Saints will travel to the Georgia Dome to face their NFC South division rivals the 5-3 Atlanta Falcons this Sunday November 13th, 2011 at 1 PM ET.
The line for this game is available for betting at Bookmaker Sportsbook with the Falcons as 1 point favorites and a total of 50 points.
In another game with huge playoff implications the Falcons host another rivalry at home, after their beat down of the Indianapolis Colts last week with a stellar performance from rookie wide receiver Julio Jones, who will certainly hope to repeat against a Saints secondary that can be beat especially with the possibility of cornerback Tracy Porter missing the game. The Saints can certainly be had on the ground, as they allow 119 rushing yards per game meaning a balanced offense is what Atlanta will be looking for.
We all know about Drew Brees and the Saints passing offense, but just for perspective they rank 2nd overall in this category, averaging 319 passing yards per game with 21 touchdowns. Certainly a challenge for Atlanta’s secondary which is not surprisingly vulnerable to the pass allowing 245 yards per game and ranking 19th overall.
