Willie Snead, Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, Terron Armstead, Kenny Vacarro, Cameron Jordan Out. 

3 KEYS TO VICTORY 

1 – Keanu Neal vs Cody Fleener 

Coming off a knee injury, the sAints will test Neal  often and early. Look for the sAints to split RBs out wide and force Keanu to test out that knee. 

2 – Deion Jones return home to Louisiana Super Dump (excuse me Super Dome)  will be an exciting one for him. sAints love to get RBs in space and attack the middle of the field. Deion Jones is the key to this game. 

Drew Brees is a master manipulater. His accuracy is second to none….. If Jones is not prepared. Brees will carve him up. Jones HAS TO HIS BEST DAY AS A PRO. 

3 – Running game has to be on point. The sAints are in the Super Dome and it’s the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The crowd will be nuts and you have to limit Drew Brees offensive opportunities. 

Falcons have to get Devonta Freeman Tevin Coleman going early. Keeping Drew Brees off the field, limiting their big play opportunities… Falcons should walk out the Super Dome in first place in the NFC South.
