The Saints will be out for revenge tonight in
Atlanta. New Orleans dropped an overtime decision to the visiting Falcons in late September. The defending Super Bowl champions have won six of seven coming into tonight's road game and at 10-4 can clinch a playoff berth with a victory.
Atlanta has won eight in a row, and at 12-2 is already assured of a postseason berth. The Falcons can claim the NFC South and home-field advantage through the conference playoffs with a win over the second-place Saints.
And home field is a good thing for the Falcons. Atlanta is 6-0 at the Georgia Dome this season and quarterback Matt Ryan has lost only once in 20 career starts there.
