Thursday Night Football Open Thread - Falcons vs. Saints

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Atlanta Falcons take on the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football to kick off Week 6 in the NFL.

The Falcons have been riding high offensively, but despite having a not-so-great game against the Redskins last week, Atlanta still prevailed. That's one of the marks of a good team, one who can withstand a team's best blow and still come out on top. The Saints are already out of division contention, and the gap between them and Atlanta/Carolina will only continue to grow this week. How many sideline shots are we going to see of Sean Payton wondering why Rob Ryan's defense can't stop anyone in key moments? Falcons 31, Saints 17
