SAINTS (5-6) at FALCONS (10-1)
Time: 5:20 p.m. TV: NFL Network
Line: Atl. by 3 1/2; O/U: 56
This NFC South tilt in Atlanta should be a dandy.
Matt Ryan sure doesn’t mind playing in the Georgia Dome. Ryan has the best home record to start a career of any QB in the Super Bowl era (31-4). However, New Orleans (one of six NFC teams with 5-6 or 6-5 marks) is the only team to beat Atlanta this season and has won four straight vs. the Falcons. Drew Brees has won 11 of 13 vs. them since joining the Saints in 2006. The pick: Saints
