Falcons vs. Saints: The most compelling storylines

One of the NFL’s best rivalries makes its return on Sunday. Unfortunately, the rivalry features a certified Super Bowl contender and a bottom five NFL team.

The Saints and Falcons are headed in complete opposite directions. Sean Payton’s group looks prime to compete for a championship this January. Dan Quinn is coaching for his job on a weekly basis at this stage of the season. Another loss or two could result in Arthur Blank moving on from the embattled head coach. Following a much-needed bye, the Falcons need to prove they are starting to learn from their mistakes and show genuine improvement across the board.
