Latest Sports News:

The NFL’s three-game schedule is capped off by the New Orleans Saints’ visit with the Atlanta Falcons at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with kickoff clicked in for 7:20 p.m. CT on NBC. This heated NFC South rivalry game is the headliner, with undercard matchups between the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears (at 11:30 a.m. CT on FOX) as well as the Dallas Cowboys and Buffalo Bills (at 3:30 p.m. CT on CBS), giving fans plenty to watch during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Games between common opponents with axes to grind are almost always unpredictable — as seen when the heavily-favored Saints laid an egg against the Falcons in their last meeting.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan could be without two of his top weapons in Jones and tight end Austin Hooper. This is a great chance for the Saints defense to get back on track after a few inconsistent games.
