NFL: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Saints fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

Football and Thanksgiving may look a little different this year, but families around the country are still crowding around the TV to watch this year’s games.

This week, with the games a little less appealing than most, it seemed like a good time to ask what everyone knows but shies away from actually saying – which Thanksgiving dishes don’t belong? During the main course, NFL fans were mostly spread across three different options. But green bean casserole took the dubious top spot with 33 percent of the vote.

For dessert, things were much more settled. When asked which pie needs to be removed from next year’s festivities, 56 percent of readers were more than happy to drop the sweet potato pie.

The food fun doesn’t stop there. Each fan base was asked to pick a Thanksgiving dish that best describes their team. New Orleans Saints fans said they think the team is the Gumbo of the NFL. This would make sense, as there is a little bit of everything on the New Orleans Saints team.

On the field, the Saints have a key matchup this week traveling to Denver to play the Broncos. Fans around the country picked New Orleans to win that game.

Saints fans specifically have renewed confidence in the team. A week after seeing confidence dip after the Drew Brees injury, the dominant win over the division rival Atlanta Falcons - including eight sacks of Matt Ryan - has 100 percent of responding Saints fans saying they think the team is headed in the right direction.
