The two best teams in the NFC South meet on Sunday when the Atlanta Falcons host the New Orleans Saints.

We’ll see strength on strength in many areas, but the best matchup of all might be the left side of the Saints’ offensive line against the right side of Atlanta’s defensive line.

ESPN Stats & Information shared some great numbers that demonstrate just how strong both areas are. When running to the left, New Orleans’ Darren Sproles is averaging 8.1 yards per carry and Pierre Thomas is averaging 7.2 yards. They rank second and third in the league among running backs with at least 10 rushes in that direction.

Well at least the best team in the NFC South has to travel to meet and beat a team in the NFC South. Saints by 10 and its only Thursday, could be more, still got a few days to think. I'm on the kool-aid and have no plans of getting off. Win, lose or draw.

we are a better team that the clowns we were a better team last year, we just did'nt keep up with the emotional output of seattle and we know what happened to the clowns with there home field advantage. we will be up for the battle, lets hope the refs don't let the acting guru of gonzo be the edge of keeping it close.
