Thursday Night Football Prognostication
Saints @ Falcons -3.5
Hexagram 48: The Well
The Falcons have been extremely resourceful, timely and clutch on their way to 10-1. Outside of their sole loss on the season, suffered in New Orleans in Week 10, Matt Ryan and crew have found a way to get the win. I think having Julio Jones healthy and back in the lineup will make the difference in this game. Jones was injured in their first matchup with the Saints and was unable to finish the game. His presence on the field gives the Falcons' offense the big play ability they need to take full advantage of the weaknesses of the New Orleans defense. They have been especially vulnerable to big plays in the passing game, and the Falcons and Ryan will need their best playmaker on the field and making an impact to get their eleventh win.
