The 8-2 New Orleans Saints will travel to Atlanta to do battle against the 2-8 Atlanta Falcons on this week's edition of Thursday Night Football.

Before the season started, many people pointed to this game as one of the marquee match-ups of the regular season. The teams were expected to be in a heated battle for NFC South supremacy, but as often happens, things didn't turn out the way that people expected.

The Saints are one of the best teams in the league, while the Falcons are struggling through a nightmare of a season. The Falcons have been destroyed by injuries and inconsistent play, and now are playing strictly for pride, as their season is a lost one.

The Saints, on the other hand, need a win on Thursday night to stay in contention in the race for home field advantage in the playoffs, as the Seattle Seahawks currently have a 10-1 record.

While the Falcons have certainly been disappointing so far this season, you can be sure that they will look to play the Saints tough at home.

Is 9 points too much to give the Falcons at home?
