Pretty easy decision here. Looks like no matter what, the Saints will need to keep the starters going in week 17. If the Falcons beat the Saints tonight, then the Saints will go into week 17 with a division title on the line. If the Saints beat the Falcons, they still have to go all out in week 17 with hope the Rams upset the 49ers.

We can forget about getting flexed helping us decide.

Only way we get to play after the 9ers is to lose tonight. No thanks...

Payton has rested the starters in the past (06, 09), so I think that's what we'll see, especially since we could potentialy end up playing 6 days later.

According to NFL.com we could have nothing to play for next week, because

"If the season ended today...

... the Saints would have a first-round bye. They can make that official Monday night with a win over the Falcons."

Someone has more information than I do ...

Anyway, I want them to play for win #13 and rest the starters only when they're up by 30 points.

The question is, how do you know you will beat the Falcons? What makes this a definitive statement?

From what I can tell, the Saints/Falcons games usually come down to a field goal.
