The Atlanta Falcons (5-3) are currently in a better position to contest the NFC South, sitting on the third spot, a win behind the Panthers and Buccaneers and a victory against the struggling New Orleans Saints (4-4) will improve their chance for a playoff this year. And the Saints will have the chance to sign up back-to-back victory for the first time this season, after the 32-37 win against the Chargers last week.

 A tough NFL Week 10 game, as shown by the odds and spread posted at the online betting firm Bookmaker, where the Atlanta Falcons are a slight favorite, sitting on odds -120, but the Saints keep the good outlook and are listed with EVEN odds to win the football game on Sunday.
