In the Atlanta Falcons’ 26-9 win over the New Orleans Saints last weekend, the score was no indication of just how badly the Falcons beat the Saints.

The Falcons just didn’t beat the Saints, but beat them up in the trenches.

In all the categories the Saints were successful in that led them to win seven games so far this season, they failed in them versus a then one-win Falcons’ team.

The Saints ran the ball only 11 times and the Falcons ran the ball over 30 times.

The Falcons had just seven sacks entering the game and got six sacks versus the Saints. Matt Ryan had been sacked 21 times entering the game versus New Orleans and the Saints got to him just one time.

The Saints lost the battle in the trenches but it was even more than that.

New Orleans Saints fan rooting guide for every game in Week 11

The NFL’s calendar is turning towards Week 11, with plenty of action ahead outside of the New Orleans Saints’ road game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here’s who Saints fans should pull for in every game this weekend. All odds are sourced from BetMGM.

Around the NFC South

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers. Tough as it may be to accept, Saints fans should pull for a Falcons win on Sunday. It’s fine if that’s unacceptable; it’s never fun to root for the enemy. Especially when the Panthers are favored by 5.5 points. Ideally, both rival NFC South teams would lose. But Carolina is a closer threat to New Orleans’ lead on the division title, and a Falcons victory here hurts their draft positioning — possibly keeping them from landing some real help like Ohio State Buckeyes prospect Chase Young. Hold your nose and root for Atlanta.

Who returns punts with Deonte Harris injured?

Breakout rookie punt returner Deonte Harris was an unexpected absentee on the New Orleans Saints injury report, with the team ruling him out for their Sunday game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Harris’s loss is huge; he’s been the best to do it for New Orleans since Sean Payton was hired as head coach, and the rookie is the only player in the NFL with 200-plus yards on both punts and kickoffs.

Unfortunately, a late-game hamstring injury versus the Atlanta Falcons has put his availability in doubt, though the team already put him on the shelf this week. Hopefully this won’t become a lingering issue that derails his promising NFL debut.

In the meantime, who will the Saints roll out to fill in for him against the Buccaneers?

NFL Network analyst James Jones makes a shocking prediction for the Saints-Bucs game

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers halted their four-game losing streak last Sunday by taking down the Arizona Cardinals, but didn’t have time to celebrate long.

With their season still on life support at 3-6, the Buccaneers will now face the challenge of trying to take down the New Orleans Saints, who sit atop the NFC South at 7-2.

The Saints are coming off a stunning home loss in Week 10 to the Atlanta Falcons, which dropped them to 7-2, meaning they still sit behind the San Francisco 49ers (8-1) in the race for the top spot in the NFC. A Drew Brees-led offense playing in desperation mode can only spell bad news for the Buccaneers, who have the league’s worst pass defense.

4 reasons the New Orleans Saints will defeat the Buccaneers in Week 11

The New Orleans Saints will be traveling to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 11. The Saints are looking to avenge their surprising loss to the Atlanta Falcons in Week 10.

Last week, New Orleans was heavily favored at home versus the 1-7 Falcons. Despite all of the signs pointing towards the Saints blowing out the Falcons, Atlanta was able to pull off the upset by the score of 26-9.

Even with the loss, the Saints still sit atop the NFC South with a 7-2 record. While New Orleans holds a comfortable two-game lead, they will look to get back on track offensively against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

The Buccaneers currently have a 3-6 record under Bruce Arians and always tend to give the Saints a tough game every year. With that being said, here are four reasons why the Saints will defeat the Buccaneers in Week 11.

P.J. Williams' stats in covering the slot versus lining up outside

Marshon Lattimore may be the most important player on the New Orleans Saints defense, but they’ll be without him on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Lattimore injured his hamstring last week versus the Atlanta Falcons and missed practice throughout the week, with New Orleans ruling him out for their road game in Tampa. When Lattimore is playing at his best, there isn’t a receiver in football who can beat him — including Falcons superstar Julio Jones and Buccaneers big-play threat Mike Evans.

So the Saints have to adapt to life without him, at least temporarily. That means a change of responsibilities for starting slot corner P.J. Williams, who slides into Lattimore’s spot. While he’s definitely best suited to defending routes from the inside, Pro Football Focus charting over the last few years suggests Williams is hardly helpless when lined up outside.

When defending the slot in his last 24 games (including the playoffs), Williams has allowed 68 of 102 passes (66.7%) thrown into his coverage to be completed, gaining 810 yards (11.9 yards per catch). He’s forced 11 incomplete throws (11.8% of his total targets) in that time. That’s a passer rating allowed of 103.0.

Walker: Michael Thomas' fast track to 400 receptions surpasses some of the greatest WRs ever

Wanna hear a crazy stat about how ridiculously good Saints receiver Michael Thomas has been?

Well, here ya go.

Ted Ginn Jr. caught his very first NFL pass back in 2007.

Thomas was a 14-year old kid at the time, years away from becoming one of the richest and one of the best wide receivers in the NFL.

Fast forward 12 years and Thomas, in just his fourth NFL season, has already surpassed Ginn in career receptions.

And he's done so, hitting the 400 milestone last...
