NFL Week 3 Props: Saints Falcons
Week 3 features the first of two meetings between NFC South foes, the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. Both teams present strong quarterbacks and top wide receivers.
Over the first two weeks, the Saints have been outscored by their opponents 66-61 (Buccaneers 2-0, Browns 0-1-1), while the Falcons have outscored their opponents 43-42 (Eagles 1-1, Panthers 1-1).
The Saints and Falcons both present strong passing games and a more than sufficient, run game.
Freeman and Kamara have changed the way these two offenses have performed, considering their pass-catching ability.
Falcons' Coach Dan Quinn says Freeman is day-to-day, so his status should be monitored, regardless of whether or not he gets the okay to play. Kamara, on the other hand, will look to continue his explosive play.
In week 4, the Saints travel New York to take on a struggling Giants team, and the Falcons host the Bengals who currently sit atop the AFC North at 2-0.
