Preview: The Monday Night Football game will feature the top two teams in the NFC South. The New Orleans Saints will take on the Atlanta Falcons.

The Saints are coming off a loss to Baltimore, while the Falcons disposed of the Seattle Seahawks. The Saints are one win away from clinching a postseason spot out of the NFC. New Orleans can still share at least a share of the divisional title with two wins and two Atlanta losses. The Saints are the third best passing team in the NFL, led by Drew Brees. Brees has thrown for 4122 yards and 31 touchdowns on the season. The running game for the Saints has been hampered by injuries to Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas and now Chris Ivory. New Orleans leading receiver has been Lance Moore; with 8 touchdown catches. For Atlanta, one win will take care of the NFC South title.

The Falcons have already clinched a postseason berth, and look to wrap up home field advantage. Atlanta has won eight straight games since their loss to Philadelphia on October 17th. The Falcons rank as the 7th best rushing team in the NFL behind Michael Turner. Turner has run the ball 300 times for 1256 yards and 11 touchdowns on the season. Matt Ryan, Atlanta’s quarterback has taken care of the ball all season; as he has also thrown for 3321 yards and 25 touchdowns. The Falcons won the last time these two teams played; September 26th in New Orleans 27-24 in overtime.
