NFL Week 6 Kickoff

by JASmius

The Falcons are undefeated (although none of their five opponents are close to being in the elite category), while the Saints are 1-4 (that lone win also coming at the expense of the Romo-less and Bryant-less and Murray-less and hapless Dallas Cowboys).  Atlanta's offense (#4) is better than New Orleans' (#7) and their defense (#20) is better than that of the Saints (#32 and dead last).  Saints head coach Sean Payton may be on his way out of the Crescent City, while his Falcons counterpart, former Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, is the toast of Georgia. buts, actually.

New Orleans

And with the toughest opponents left on Atlanta's schedule being Carolina twice, Minnesota, and the hugely underachieving Indianapolis Colts, there's a growing possibility that the Falcons could go undefeated on the 2015 season, and certainly challenge Green Bay for home field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs.

It's like it's 2012 all over again.

Only hopefully, absent another last-second, game-winning field goal that sends Seattle home early.
