ATLANTA, GA (WVUE) - The 9-3 Saints are set to meet the 7-5 Falcons Thursday night. For Atlanta, their margin for error is razor thin. A loss could severely damage their postseason hopes. Which means the Falcons are desperate, and the Saints must be ready.
"With Atlanta taking the loss that they did, they could come back, they could be fiery and be on top of their game. It's a division game again, and we're in the hunt to try and win the division. We just got to go out and put our best foot forward in the classroom, and just take this mental preparation as best as we can," said wide receiver Ted Ginn, Jr.
A win Thursday would make the Saints 10-3. While it wouldn't clinch the NFC South, it sure would put them in a great spot for the final three games of the regular season.
