2. New Orleans Saints

With the Atlanta Falcons only having three wins to their name, a Thanksgiving Day meeting would seem like the perfect opportunity for the New Orleans Saints to earn another win to continue making a strong case as one of the top teams to beat in the NFC.

However, football fans remember well what took place a few weeks ago when the Saints ended up being one of the biggest victims of an upset after losing at home to the Falcons.

Does this mean Atlanta should feel confident in being able to complete the season sweep on their division rivals?

This will obviously be easier said than done since one can only imagine how frustrated the Saints were to let their first meeting with the Falcons slip away, but there is hope.

Since Dan Quinn has found his name on the hot seat for most of the last two months, Atlanta will be fighting to keep their head coach beyond the 2019 season during these final five games.

In other words, if the Falcons can earn another win to help save Quinn’s job while making things a little more complicated for the Saints in the race for the top playoff seed in the NFC, Atlanta will be all for it.
