So Atlanta and Saints go at it.......division rivalry and a game that is essentially win or go home for the year......what is the chance that both teams beat the crap out of each other physically and emotionally in that game.............then the next week both Atlanta and Saints have less in the tank and both lose the last week?
This game as a loss for the Saints would take the focus of Panthers into Cleveland with the fate in their hands a good mind set to be in.....
If Saints win tonight I guarantee you the next week in Atlanta will be an epic game of playoff caliber..................both teams know they have to slice each other up and get past that game to have a chance the following week. more so for Saint...........than the Falcons.
If Saint would win tonight (ugh) I would hope the Falcons can beat them next week but that the Falcons would themselves be beat up from the game and run out of gas trying to play the Panthers the week after that (assuming we get past Cleveland first).
