The NFC South is a confusing place. Two teams (Carolina and Atlanta) are undefeated. Two teams (The Buccaneers and Saints) are near the bottom of the league in the Power Rankings.
The Falcons and Saints, at opposite ends of that provided spectrum, face off in Week 6’s Thursday Night Football contest. Matt Ryan’s crew is flying, while the veteran presence of Drew Brees and Sean Payton still hold out hope they can reverse their fortunes and make a run at the postseason.
