Thursday Night Football Open Thread: Saints vs Falcons

Join us inside for your TNF action!

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The undefeated Atlanta Falcons head to the Big Easy to take on a struggling New Orleans Saints team that many have already written off for the season.  You know the year is going badly when speculation about where your head coach will be coaching next season is a hot topic of conversation.

On the other side of the coin, the Falcons are storming through the first half of their schedule, and don't expect to be slipped up by the Saints, but Atlanta is not the only undefeated team in that division... The Carolina Panthers are sitting at 4-0 and also have their eyes on the NFC South prize.

While many are predicting a blowout, it wouldn't surprise me to see this one end up a lot closer than expected.  I'll stick with my Falcons prediction, but only by a score of 24-20.

This is your Thursday Night Football Open Thread... Have fun!
