It is a bit odd to hear Falcons fans have been somewhat placid considering their team has won three of their last four games.

Quinn took it upon himself to write a fill-in-the-blank late note for Falcons fans so they can either arrive to work a couple of hours late, or work from home Friday. But if Atlanta United matches can manage to be packed in that stadium, then it's fair to expect the same from the Falcons.

The Saints are a one-point favorite at Atlanta. A win by the Saints would make them the third team in the conference with 10 wins, joining the Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles.

"It's always tough playing New Orleans", Ryan said in an article to ESPN reporter Vaughn McClure. The last time they played was on January 1 in the regular season finale of the 2016 season, with the Falcons ending the year with a 38-33 victory on their way to an NFC championship run.

Atlanta countered with 83 points and 907 total yards, leading by 20 points in Game 1 and 25 points in Game 2 and winning comfortably both times, 45-32 and 38-32. No doubt, there is a pretty good chance this game tomorrow will come down to the fourth quarter.

New Orleans ranks second in the National Football League in total yards per game with 408.6 and third in scoring with 29.4 points per game and is more unsafe than ever on offense with a rushing attack that averages 142.6 yards per game.

However, no casualties have reported yet; the reports suggested Uttrakhand was the epicentre of the natural disaster . The tremors were also felt in Himachal Pradesh, NCR and Western UP.

The Saints have witnessed much of their stability on offense with a successful running game behind the play of running backs Mark Ingram and rookie sensation Alvin Kamara. The Falcons already trail the Saints by two games with just four remaining.

Ingram has rushed for 922 yards and nine touchdowns this season, while Kamara has rushed for 606 and seven touchdowns.

Also, Atlanta's running backs and receivers are a bad matchup for the improved Saints defense.

The Falcons will need to use a strong push up front from the defensive line and the linebackers swarming pitching in to help slow down the Saints' rushing attack.

The Saints are coming off a 31-21 win against the Carolina Panthers to take over sole possession of first place in the NFC South. If you asked me to list why I'm a Saints fan, "Watching the Falcons lose." might be #1 on my list. Los Angeles Rams (9-3), New Orleans (9-3), Seattle (8-4) and Carolina (8-4), suggesting one more misstep down the stretch could doom their playoff chances. Ryan threw four touchdowns.
