New Orleans was able to grind out a solid victory over the Carolina Panthers last week, winning 18-10. No one had a standout game offensively for New Orleans, but RB Alvin Kamara led the way with one touchdown. QB Taysom Hill ended up with a passer rating of 139.10.

New Orleans’ defense was a presence, holding Carolina to a paltry 178 yards. The defense embarrassed the Panthers’ offensive line to sack the quarterback seven times for a total loss of 42 yards. Leading the way was DE Cameron Jordan and his 3.5 sacks. Jordan now has 11.5 sacks this season.

Meanwhile, the Falcons came up short against the Buffalo Bills last week, falling 29-15. QB Matt Ryan had a pretty forgettable game, fumbling the ball once with only 197 yards passing. Ryan ended up with a passer rating of 128.50.

The Saints’ win brought them up to 8-8 while Atlanta’s loss pulled them down to 7-9. New Orleans is still in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs, so these next games are critical for them. Atlanta has been eliminated from playoff contention.

New Orleans is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with New Orleans, who are 8-7 against the spread.

New Orleans was close but no cigar in the teams’ previous meeting last November as they fell 27-25 to the Falcons. Can the Saints avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.

The New Orleans Saints are just one quarter away from delivering their fans the win they’ve been expecting all week. They have emerged as the frontrunner and are ahead of the Atlanta Falcons 17-9. The Saints have been riding high on the performance of QB Taysom Hill, who has accumulated 224 passing yards in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown.

New Orleans has been led by Hill, who so far has accumulated 224 passing yards in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Hill hadn’t helped his team much against the San Francisco 49ers last week, so this is a nice turnaround for him.

New Orleans has been a nightmare for Atlanta’s offensive line with six sacks already. We’ll see how many sacks New Orleans can scare up the rest of the game.

What to Know

The New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons are even-steven against one another since September of 2016 (4-4), but not for long. The Saints and Atlanta will face off in an NFC South battle at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Falcons winning the first 26-9 on the road and New Orleans taking the second 26-18.

Meanwhile, the Falcons picked up a 34-27 victory over the Denver Broncos two weeks ago. It was another big night for Atlanta’s QB Matt Ryan, who passed for three TDs and 284 yards on 35 attempts. Ryan’s 51-yard touchdown toss down the right side of the field to WR Olamide Zaccheaus in the first quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the afternoon.

The Saints are the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Their wins bumped New Orleans to 7-2 and Atlanta to 3-6. New Orleans has been dynamite on the offensive side of the ball, averaging 30.11 points per game. We’ll see if the Falcons can find some way to disarm them.

The New Orleans Saints open the 2022 regular season on the road at the same place where their 2021 campaign ended, against the Atlanta Falcons, on Sunday, Sept.11. While there is much familiarity between the Saints and Falcons clubs that closed out the 2021 campaign with New Orleans defeating Atlanta 30-20 to finish 9-8 for its fifth consecutive winning campaign, there will also be significant differences with the squads when they line up on Sunday for the 106th time in the regular season.

Dennis Allen will make his regular season debut as head coach of the Saints on Sunday, his 13th overall season on staff in New Orleans, the prior six and a half as defensive coordinator. The contest will also feature different starting quarterbacks from the 2021 finale, as Jameis Winston returns to the lineup after leading New Orleans to a 5-2 start last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury, and Marcus Mariota replaces longtime starter Matt Ryan for the Falcons.

New Orleans will open its season against the Falcons in Atlanta for the first time since 2014. The Saints will start their annual journey away from the Caesars Superdome for the second consecutive season, looking for similar momentum to a 38-3 win over Green Bay in 2021, in a game relocated due to Hurricane Ida. New Orleans will open the season with three consecutive division matchups for only the third time, the first time since the 1995 campaign.
