Falcons at Saints Game Preview
There won't be many games this season featuring two offensive attacks as dyanmic and deadly as New Orleans matchup with Atlanta at the Superdome. This N.F.C. South rivalry game has been in New Orleans' favor in recent years, with the Saints boasting an 11-3 record against the Falcons since 2006, including a 6-1 mark at home. A key for New Orleans will be keeping Atlanta under 100 rushing yards, as the Saints are 7-0 against Atlanta since '06 when they do so.
Atlanta will seem to feature an even better running attack in 2013, however, with Steven Jackson filling in for Michael Turner. Jackson has been one of the league's elite backs the past few years in St. Louis and has never benefitted from having a passing attack quite as dominant as Atlanta's under Matt Ryan. WR's Julio Jones and Roddy White could have monster games against a Saints defense that was not up to New Orleans standards last season, setting the NFL record for most yards allowed in a season.
The Saints biggest addtion this offseason will never make a play in 2013, but is nevertheless, crucial to their success on the field. Head coach Sean Payton returns to New Orleans after sitting out last season and will look to provide the support New Orleans needs to solidify their defense.
Atlanta also struggled on the defensive side of the ball in 2012, finishing in the bottom 10 of the NFL in yards allowed. The team's red zone defense and turnover capability helped make up for it, however, giving them a top five finish for fewest points allowed.
Here's this week's injury report for the Saints and Falcons:
The players listed as probable for New Orleans: Martez Wilson (elbow), Marques Colston (foot), Nick Toon (chest), Junior Galette (hamstring), Travaris Cadet (foot), Zach Strief (back), Jahri Evans (back), Kevin Reddick(shoulder) and Terron Armstead (stomach).
The Falcons: Linebacker Stephen Nicholas (thight), cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) and receiver Roddy White (ankle) are the questionable players; kicker Matt Bryant (back) and center Joe Hawley (illness) are the two players listed as probable.
