The Atlanta Falcons fell short in the NFC Championship game last season. Their Week 1 opponents, the New Orleans Saints, suffered though a season without head coach Sean Payton.
Enough with 2012 though.
The Falcons and Saints meet in a Week 1 match-up at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA. Coverage of Sunday’s game between the two teams will air on FOX at 1:00 pm ET in selected markets.
New Orleans is a 3 point favorite against the Atlanta Falcons. The over/under for this game is 54 total points.
The NFC South figures to be contested by these two teams this season and this Week1 match-up should provide as good an example as any as to the quality of football both teams will play in 2013.
Do the Falcons pull off the road win or do the Saints remind everyone that they are still a force in the NFC?
