The Saints have a chance to start 2016 right playing against the Atlanta Falcons

Jonathan Vilma and Drew Brees look on during the coin toss of a Saints/Falcons game in 2009.
CREATIVE COMMONS

Saints-Falcons games are never meaningless.*

Both teams have been eliminated from playoff competition, but, really, Sunday's contest is a playoff game all its own: it's a chance for the Saints to sweep the Falcons for the 14th time since 1967, bringing the all-time series record to 49-45 in favor of Atlanta; it's also a chance for the Falcons to avoid a sweep and establish, under head coach Dan Quinn, that the Saints will not extend the dominance they enjoyed over former coach Mike Smith.

Anyway, you know all that. The real chance we have here is to start the 2016 football calendar year off about as well as you can start off a football calendar year: by beating Atlanta.*
