The Falcons have been completely wiped of any life or respectability, and it may be hard for them to get up enough for a short week matchup on Thursday with New Orleans . Some of the lesser Saints will be productive against the weakening shell of what used to be an Atlanta contender. Kenny Stills and Mark Ingram may be useful in Week 12.
Time to trade Ray Rice if you still can. The confidence he gained running through big holes against Chicago will evaporate against the Jets. New York’s sturdy run defense should ensure another in a thread of disappointing stat lines for Rice this year.
