In the last game of Week 3 of the NFL, we will see the teams of Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints on Monday at Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana. You can watch Falcons vs. Saints on ESPN 8.30 p.m. ET.
New Orleans hosts Atlanta Falcons in their 95th meeting. Saints has one of the weakest defenses in the NFL and I don’t think they have enough to keep Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman, Jacob Tamme and company to under 25 points. Falcons’ defense is not much better and I can’t see them keeping Drew Brees to under 25, either. This will be a game between two high-scoring offenses with Colby Fleener still looking for his first receiving touchdown and this is the perfect opportunity for him to have at least one.
The Falcons have been vulnerable against the run, allowing 4.6 yards per carry, and the Saints will look to exploit that weakness. Saints’ passing defense is horrendous and Matt Ryan will probably find Julio Jones with every pass he takes.
In a divisional contest like this, the game can go either way, but it is safe to say that the two teams will score many points and I predict the game to have more than 53½ points.
