Falcons vs Saints NFL Network Week 6 Pick & Score Prediction

One of the biggest Week 6 NFL mismatches on paper would appear to be the Falcons-Saints game from New Orleans. But as any NFL fan knows, upsets are always possible, especially when the underdog has a quarterback like Drew Brees.

CBS and the NFL Network will co-broadcast the Falcons-Saints game beginning at 8:25 p.m. Eastern from the Superdome on Thursday Night Football.

Even with Brees, New Orleans has struggled badly, opening the season 1-4. Brees has thrown for 300-plus yards in three games entering the Falcons-Saints game, but New Orleans has won only one of those games. It has been the porous New Orleans defense that has caused most of the teams problems in 2015, as the Saints rank in the lower quartile of the NFL in total defense and scoring defense.

And with a powerful Atlanta offense on its way to the Superdome with a short week of preparation for Thursday Night Football, New Orleans defense doesnt figure to be feeling too confident for the Falcons-Saints game. Atlanta ranks in the top quartile of the NFL in scoring offense and total offense. Running back Devonta Freeman has burst onto the scene for Atlanta, becoming the first NFL player to score seven touchdowns in his first three starts.

The strong Falcons offense has lifted Atlanta to a 5-0 start. And should Atlanta need a late comeback to win the Falcons-Saints games, Atlanta is well-prepared. The Falcons are the first team in NFL history to open a season 5-0 after trailing in the fourth quarter of four of those games.

Both the Falcons and Saints struggled in Week 5. New Orleans lost at Philadelphia, 39-17, against an Eagles team that had only won one game before crushing New Orleans. Atlanta meanwhile needed an interception return for a touchdown in overtime to hold off Washington, 25-19.

Entering the Falcons-Saints game, the one bright spot for New Orleans is it does have a 1-1 record at home, including a 26-20 overtime win against Dallas in Week 4. Brees threw for a season-high 359 yards in that game, and he hit his 400th career touchdown pass as the game-winning score in overtime.

Dallas and Philadelphia are the two common opponents for the Falcons and Saints this season. Atlanta defeated Dallas, 39-28, and Philadelphia, 26-24, this season.

Atlanta leads the all-time Falcons-Saints series, 48-43. Atlanta has won two in a row in the Falcons-Saints series, including a 30-14 win at New Orleans last season. From 2006 through 2013, the Saints won 13 of 16 games in the series.
