Falcons QB Matt Ryan will play Sunday, CB Desmond Trufant questionable

Saints open as double-digit home favorites over the Falcons

Saints open as double-digit home favorites over the Falcons

With Week 9 off to continue to rest his thumb, Brees looks to continue his prolific play against the struggling Falcons, a team that could arguably be winless at this point of the season.

The Falcons will have franchise quarterback Matt Ryan back on the field when they take on the Saints this Sunday in New Orleans.

Atlanta comes into the game at 1-7 overall so far this season, now riding a six-game losing streak as they face another tough opponent away from home. But something odd happened to these Atlanta Falcons against the rival Saints: They looked like a competent football team and discovered a pass rush.

City slipped to fourth after their third defeat of the campaign, with Klopp arguing that Pep Guardiola's side were largely inferior in Sunday's encounter.

Note to the Saints, though: There are better times to troll your rival than when you're losing in the fourth quarter to said 1-7 rival.

In the third quarter of the game, the powers to be at Mercedes-Benz Superdome chose to play highlights of Super Bowl LI where the Falcons lost a 28-3 lead to the Patriots. The showdown between the two teams is really a tale of two completely different seasons up to this point in the year, with the Falcons and Saints heading in exact opposite directions entering the Week 10 contest in New Orleans.
