When the NFL schedulers got together, a Week 12 Thursday night game between the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons was likely expected to be a huge game that could determine playoff seeding and the NFC South title for either team. It would be Matt Ryan and Drew Brees.
Well, it is Brees and Ryan, but the Falcons are awful.
It is still fun to watch.
One thing to watch for? Ron Jaworski said that Brees could perhaps set a single game passing record tonight. Since he is always right -- like when he said that Ciolin Kaepernick just might become the best QB ever.
Since you are watching, chat about the game. Chat about the players you covet. Chat about the Cardinals. It is an open thread.
In your discussion, please remember to keep these rules in mind.
1. While we allow a bit more when it comes to language, if you can avoid swearing, it would be appreciated.
2. We still do not accept any personal attacks. Be passionate, but don't be out of line.
3. "Rec" your favorite comments.
4. Do not ask for or post links to illegal streaming feeds of the game. Gamecasts, Slingbox, all that is cool. But sharing such links puts the entire network at risk of being shut down. If you do it, the comment will be deleted. If you persist, you will unfortunately be banned.
