What else should you be looking out for Thursday night (8:15 p.m., NBC, stream on fuboTV, try for free)? We’re glad you asked. Read on to find out.
The New Orleans Saints have now won nine-straight games since the season opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after yet another blowout win against the Philadelphia Eagles. They’ll look to stretch the streak to 10 games when they host the Atlanta Falcons on Thanksgiving at 7:20 p.m. The Saints are favored by 13 in the matchup.
Saints 41, Falcons 27: The Saints are playing with incredible confidence and swagger right now. If anything, they are improving as the season progresses. The 13-point line is the largest in the history in the series. And I don’t think it will be enough. Saints continue their roll with another blowout.
Saints 41, Falcons 21: Every week I pick a reasonably close game because blowouts in the NFL are rare, and every week the Saints make me look foolish. I’m finally adjusting this week. Sure, the Falcons are a familiar opponent, and division games tend to be close. However, I just don’t see how Atlanta’s defense could possibly stop the Saints right now, especially in a primetime game at the Superdome.
Saints 38, Falcons 31: Who can watch what the Saints have done the last few weeks and not pick them to 1: win, and 2: put up a ton of points, especially in a prime-time Thanksgiving night game in the Superdome against their most bitter rival? The only thing that scares me about this matchup is the spread. Thirteen points is a lot to give up to your top rival, especially one that has a quarterback-receiver connection as strong as the one between Matt Ryan and Julio Jones right now. The Saints should win comfortably, just not as comfortably as they have in recent weeks.
Saints 35, Falcons 14: It’s a short week, but did you see how good the Saints looked against the Falcons? The New Orleans defense looks better and better each week and the offense looks unstoppable. The Saints stretch the streak to 10 straight on Thanksgiving.
