Atlanta Falcons 27 @ New Orleans Saints 24: Prediction Results and Voting

Everyone's predictions from last week have finally been tallied, analyzed and formatted accordingly. They can be found in their entirety following the jump.  

Nobody managed to be perfect this week and quite a few people got two correct, so our ballot is pretty long. Colston not scoring really screwed up a lot of people. The Saints running game was another common culprit. 

Look over the results then go ahead and cast your vote for the best predictor. The poll will be open for 48 hours, closing Thursday morning at 6am.
