Falcons vs. Saints: Week 3 NFL Lines & Spread Prediction

Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints

The defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints haven’t been perfect on the field this season, but a quick look at the standings would argue otherwise, as the black and gold have opened the season with consecutive wins. The teams they beat aren’t slouches either, as both the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers were projected as legitimate NFC contenders before the season started, and despite their slow starts, are still very talented teams.

The Saints welcome the Atlanta Falcons to town this weekend, in a different type of match up. Not only are the Falcons a legitimate playoff contender, they are also a NFC South rival, and in a division where there has been so much turnover between winners over past years, it will be crucial for New Orleans to remain undefeated.

How Can Atlanta Win?

After looking soft in an opening week loss at Pittsburgh, the Falcons bounced back in a big way week two, crushing the Arizona Cardinals 41-7 in their home opener.

Atlanta destroyed the defending NFC West-champions both on the ground and through the air, taking a 24-7 lead to the locker room at halftime, before finishing with 17 straight points to close out the game. Quarterback Matt Ryan will have to be just as good this week as he was the last when he threw for 225 yards and three touchdowns, without turning the ball over.

That will allow for running backs Michael Turner and Jason Snelling to do their thing after the two combined for an averaged of close to seven yards per carry in the week two win. Atlanta’s defense will have to limit the big plays, but if their offense can rise to the occasion the Falcons could win in a shootout.

How Can New Orleans Win?

Drew Brees has opened this season they way he finished last, throwing for nearly 500 yards and three touchdowns in the first two wins of the year. While the Saints haven’t blow anyone away, they have never looked at risk of losing a game, and considering the caliber of the opponents they have faced, that is impressive in itself.

New Orleans will need to find a way to slow the Atlanta rushing game and force Ryan to throw. The Saints should have little problem moving the ball themselves at home, but will need to slow down the Falcons attack to remain perfect.

Outlook

While this division has seen massive turnover throughout the past decade, this will be the year that ends with the Saints repeating as NFC South champions. That quest to remain atop the standings in the division continues this weekend, when New Orleans beats Atlanta.

Pick: Saints -4
