Saints News, 11/21/13: Saints @ Falcons Game Tonight!

New, comments

Kick-off is at 7:25 PM CT and the game will be shown on NFL Network. The actives/inactives list hasn't been released just yet, so stay tuned for that. It's funny how so many are predicting a Saints blowout. Those people must not know the history of this rivalry.
