Thursday Night Football Preview
Going into tonight's game, the NFC South's No. 1 team Saints and last year's NFC's top seed Falcons are sitting on the opposite end of the winning and losing spectrums among the NFC teams. Saints stands at the top ranking position for all time lead in overall offensive plays. According to offensive and defensive stats comparison, the Falcons would need a miracle to stop the No. 1 NFC South Saints from dominating Week 12's Thursday Night Football.
In terms of offensive plays, the Saints have 3219 total passing yards, which is almost double that of their opponent. In almost every field except Total Rushing Yards, New Orleans beats the Falcons in stats achieved. Thus, offensively speaking, tonight's game will largely be dominated by the Saints.
From the defensive lines, the Falcons are no match against Saints, who are ranked 4th (305.4 yards) in Total Yards Allowed, 5th (18.3) in Total Points, and 3rd (191.4 yards) in Pass Yards Allowed per game on average.

While the Falcons are ranked 6th (274.4 yards) in their total Pass Yards, they would still need a miracle to penetrate the No. 3 ranked defensive team in Pass Yards Allowed.
Now, with the overwhelming odds stacked against the Falcons, what should be the highlights for tonight's game besides the total domination by Saints?
Well, Saints' quarterback Drew Brees leads the Saints with 3,369 passing yards and 26 touchdowns, and tight end Jimmy Graham has put down 846 yards with 10 touchdowns. Brees and Graham have been an unstoppable pair, and they are expected to put down even more nice plays tonight.
