Drew Brees and his New Orleans Saints are struggling this season without their head coach Sean Peyton. The Saints have to play the Atlanta Falcons next who are 10-1 on the season and having one of their best seasons on recent times. Brees and his Saints are looking for their sixth win of the season to get back to playing .500 football. The NFL has really hurt the Saints with the bounty gate scandal, not having their head coach on the side lines due to the suspension set the Saints back further than anyone would have thought before the season started.
New Orleans is going to have to find a way to slow down the Falcons offense down in order to have a chance of a win. If Matt Ryan gets a lot of pressure the Saints might have a chance. Brees and the Saints offense has to get going quick in this game. The team needs to jump out in front and they have to stay there. If Brees has to play from behind in this game the Falcons defense will bring a ton of pressure to Brees and this could be one long game for the guy who got a 110 million dollar extension this season. Either way this game is going to be one of the great games on the 2012 NFL schedule this season. Can the Saints hand the Falcons their second loss on the season? Stay tuned to find out….
