The Atlanta Falcons will take on the New Orleans Saints Sunday afternoon.
Coming into Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons have to feel good about where they are at under Raheem Morris. They are 3-1 and playing their best football as they enter what is the toughest stretch of their season.
Hopefully, this team was able to utilize their bye week to their advantage and can make a statement against the Saints.
The Blogging Dirty staff weighs in on what they think will happen Sunday afternoon in New Orleans.

The Atlanta Falcons are finally playing pretty good football on both sides of the ball and they are going to have to get even better given the remaining schedule.
I wrote Saturday that this game will be decided by Alvin Kamara and Deion Jones, I suspect that Foye Oluokun will have something to say as well. I also think that going with Taysom Hill instead of Jameis Winston is huge for the Falcons.
Like last year in New Orleans, I think the Falcons win and win big.

The Atlanta Falcons are coming off a bye week and if it’s anything like last year, we’re in for a second-half run. Now for the obvious, Taysom Hill instead of Drew Brees.
Hill has been effective in spurts as a gadget player. But to line up behind center all game, not even the Falcons defense is bad enough to get embarrassed by a player like him. Or are they? It’s a rivalry and anything can happen. Like the Falcons blowing out a 7-2 team on the road.

Coming off the bye week the Atlanta Falcons offense is going to roll the Saints defense. Falcons will be in control the entire game with saints scoring late.
This is also going to be a classic Matt Ryan game where people ask why would they ever get rid of him?
Big day for Matt Ryan.
