If you look at the box score, it seems like the Falcons offense gave the Saints a run for their money. However, even with a good game from Matt Ryan (373 yards, 1 touchdown) and both Roddy White and Julio Jones, Atlanta couldn't get the W. After all, defense is what wins championships and Atlanta seems to be lacking an effective one. —Jose Martinez
