The NFC South is kicking off week 6 of the NFL season with a showdown between the undefeated Atlanta Falcons and the totally defeated New Orleans Saints. Kick off is at 8:25 PM EST and the game will be on CBS.

The Saints had the Patriots back the entire offseason during Deflarthyism, so they should be an easy team to support, while the Falcons are run by former Patriots executives Thomas Dimitroff and Scott Pioli, and are quarterbacked by Boston College graduate Matt Ryan. The Falcons owner Arthur Blank supported the suspension of Tom Brady.

The Falcons have the most exciting running back in the NFC in Devonta Freeman, who has picked up 539 yards and seven touchdowns over the past three weeks. He's like if the Patriots didn't take it easy on teams by sitting Dion Lewis in the second half.

If it weren't for Blank, I'd be conflicted. I hope both offenses score a billion points and the Saints win. Use this thread for discussion.
