The Falcons have lost just one game in the 2012 season to date, and Thursday night they get a shot to get revenge on that team, as they play host to the rival New Orleans Saints at the Georgia Dome.
The 10-1 Falcons are 5-0 at home, and while there’s been some close games, they have always been able to find a way to escape without a loss. That is other than the week 10 battle when they lost in New Orleans 31-27.
That day the Falcons had a shot to win it late, as they were on the one-yard line in the last two minutes with four shots, but couldn’t get it done, sending them to their first loss of 2012.
The Saints have had the Falcons number, as Atlanta coach Mike Smith is 2-7 against the Saints and 49-15 against the rest of the NFL in his four-plus regular seasons as Atlanta’s coach.
