Falcons vs. Saints

The Saints have a rivalry game of their own this week, when the Atlanta Falcons come to the Superdome on Sunday. The Saints finally picked up their first victory of the season last week in Seattle. The offense finally got moving and didn't kill themselves with turnovers.

The game will mark the return of two of the most loved Saints to New Orleans, Morten Andersen and Joe Horn. Andersen's played in the dome a time or two since leaving the Saints, but this is Horn's first visit back. It will be special and Saints fans should give him a warm welcome.

The Saints defense is preparing for a new quarterback with Byron Leftwich making his first Falcon start. It is not clear what Leftwich will bring to the game as he looked terrible in his last action against Tennessee. He probably doesn't have a full grasp of the offense yet and with his lack of mobility, New Orleans should be able to pressure him all day.

Reggie Bush looks to continue his solid performance from last week. He didn't find the end zone, but came just three yards shy of his 2nd career 100-yard rushing day. He'll want to keep proving that he can be an NFL starting running back and will likely find the end zone this weekend.
