MNF: Saints vs. Falcons

Four seasons ago, the Saints returned to the Superdome following Hurricane Katrina on Monday Night Football. The Saints took down the Falcons in what was the most memorable Monday night game in Saints history. Flashforward to tonight and those same Falcons come to town for the biggest game of this early season for the Saints (seems like we've said that about a few games this year like the Jets and Giants games, but when you're undefeated, the next game is always the biggest).

The Saints currently have a two game lead over the Falcons in the division, but the Saints have yet to play a divisional opponent until tonight. These two rivals always play each other tough and this Falcons team isn't one to take lightly. While they lost last week to the Cowboys, they will be jacked up for their game against the Saints.

New Orleans got their first scare of the season last week against the Dolphins, but pulled through with a great second half. This team is winning on both sides of the ball and a win tonight will tie the best start in franchise history at 7-0.

The Superdome is already a tough place to play, add to that an undefeated season on the line, a division oppenent and playing on Monday Night Football, and this game will be electric. Saints fans are showing the team lots of love and support this year and look for the home field advantage to only grow stronger throughout the season.
