Keys to the Game:
Atlanta: With White and Jones on the outside and Gonzalez and Jackson (out of the backfield) over the middle, Ryan and the Falcons should be able to move the ball consistently against the Saints. They must convert red zone trips into touchdowns.
New Orleans: Look for an early deep shot to Kenny Stills to open up the middle of the field for the likes of Colston, Graham, Moore and Sproles.
Verdict: Drew Brees and Matt Ryan combined for 33 interceptions last season. In a game that will almost certainly be high scoring the team with the most possessions will likely emerge with the win. The addition of Steven Jackson gives the Falcons a better balance than last year and if they can survive the emotional return of Sean Payton they can grab an early advantage in the division.
