The Atlanta Falcons will play an unfamiliar quarterback on Sunday
The Atlanta Falcons are coming off a loss in which they looked horrendous, they seemingly could not get anything going or do anything right, and now they are traveling to take on their bitter rivals in the Superdome.
Nothing Falcons fans want to see more than the Falcons break their losing streak against the much-hated opponent
The Atlanta Falcons have to prepare to take on a new face against the Saints
Trevor Siemien will be the starting quarterback when the Saints host the Atlanta Falcons, which is a bad thought because the Falcons have continuously struggled against career backups.
The team somehow always finds a way to lose when they should win, and most of the time it comes against quarterbacks that should not be able to hang with Atlanta.
If Atlanta wants to be able to silence the Saints and their annoying fans, they must stop Siemien in his tracks, no excuses.
The Saints are coming off of an upset win over Tampa Bay, where they almost choked the game after Jameis Winston left with a knee injury that ended up being a torn ACL, ending his season prematurely.
Trevor will be making a start over the quarterback who beat the Falcons last season—Taysom Hill.
Whether this is due to Sean Payton feeling like Trevor gives the team a better chance to win than Taysom, or if Taysom is still recovering from a scary concussion, is another story. All Atlanta should be worried about is how to stop a quarterback with momentum, and coincidentally a quarterback who has been a backup for the majority of his career but is ready to take on the Falcons.
The worry for the Falcons lies all across the roster, how can this defense stop anyone? How can the passing attack get going despite the poor play by the offensive line and the lack of wide receivers? There is a lot that needs to be answered quickly.
If Atlanta can pull out a win in front of the New Orleans crowd, it will make Falcons fans so happy.
