After an unfortunate first meeting, the New Orleans Saints have a rematch with the Falcons on Thanksgiving night. Bold predictions for the game.

Since Drew Brees returned, the New Orleans Saints have been on a roll. Things have been looking up since their last meeting with the Falcons. The Saints and Falcons met once already this season, a little over two weeks ago, and things did not fare well for the Saints. As for the Falcons, they had a day.

Looking back at that game, the Saints only put up nine points throughout the entire game. Wil Lutz was their saving grace, kicking field goals in three of the four quarters. The team couldn’t generate anything in the fourth quarter.

Overall, things just looked pretty bleak for the Saints who had played so well the previous week. Thankfully, they were able to iron out the kinks against the Buccaneers and the Panthers.

Heading into Week 13, the Saints have a much-needed chance for revenge. After such an embarrassing loss, they need to band together and make sure that the Falcons don’t have a repeat performance.

Considering how well they played against the Buccaneers and the Panthers, the Saints should have no problem in dealing with the Falcons this time. If they do, no doubt the game will be a close one, unlike their previous meeting.

Despite having a short week, the Saints are more than prepared to show the Falcons that they aren’t the same time they were two weeks ago. Before the game kicks off, these are three bold predictions for the Saints for their Thanksgiving game against the Falcons.
