All eyes on the running backs in Saints-Falcons showdown
07 December, 2017, 03:02 | Author: Hope Soto
Going into Thursday the Falcons sit at 7-5 with the toughest remaining schedule including two against the division leading Saints. If you are wearing Saints gear, and as we pass on the street I say, "28-3" and you don't chuckle and fist bump me, you probably aren't a lunatic obsessed Saints fan. The Saints fell to Los Angeles a couple of weeks back but took out Carolina in their last appearance. This game has major playoff implications in the division and in the NFC. Atlanta had a three-game win streak going, but lost in their last outing versus the Vikings.
Ingram, who has gained 922 yards and scored nine touchdowns on 180 carries, said he and Kamara, a third-round draft pick out of Tennessee, are simply doing what they are paid to do - give the 2017 Saints more balance so that every game does not rise and fall on Brees' right shoulder. In every poll, only one team now ranks higher than Carolina and it's this week's opponent - Minnesota.
Thursday night games have always brought about a greater sense of pride and competitive spirit from fans of both teams in their respective domes.

As the AtlantaFalcons kept winning week after week in 2016 and advanced to the Super Bowl with a quick-strike offense and a speed-demon defense, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton certainly was paying attention.

New England (-12) at Miami: If a Saints player any time between 2008 and 2011 did what Rob Gronkowski did to Tre'Davious White, during the Bounty Gate scandal we'd have seen that play 9 million times and Roger Goodell would have called for a lifetime ban for whichever Saint did it, and he'd have had a point. My answer is Aaron Rogers quarterbacking a 9-7 Packers team. The lines opened with a 2 point spread for Atlanta to cover but since then, it has changed to a 1.5 point spread for the Saints to cover.
But the big story in the Big Easy has been the emergence of rookie Alvin Kamara, who already has more than 1,200 yards running and receiving, along with 11 TDs. "If you like running backs, it's your kind of game".
