NFL Week 3: Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints

Atlanta Falcons (1-1) @ New Orleans Saints (2-0)

Time: 1:00pm EST

Point Spread: New Orleans Saints -3.5

Over/Under Line: 49

Preview: In a key NFC South game, the Atlanta Falcons will head to the big easy to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints. Atlanta has been a tale of two teams, losing in their opener in Pittsburgh, but then coming home and blasting the Arizona Cardinals in week two. Matt Ryan has thrown for 477 yards and 3 touchdowns in the early going. Jason Snelling has been the work horse for the Falcons, running for 133 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Falcons sit behind both New Orleans and Tampa Bay in the division.

The Saints picked up a Thursday night win to start the season over Minnesota, and then backed that up with a Monday night win in San Francisco. Garrett Hartley punched a field goal through the uprights as time expired to down the 49ers. One downfall for the Saints so far in 2010 has been their rushing offense which has averaged just 64.5 yards per game, which puts them second to last in all of the NFL. Drew Brees, the Saints quarterback has completed 55 of 74 passes for 491 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Saints are a four point favorite in this game, with the over/under coming in at 49.5.
