The league considered using its flex option (moving the date and kickoff time) on the game but instead moved three other games to Dec. 17: Colts at Vikings (1 p.m.), Ravens at Browns (4:30 p.m.) and Dolphins at Bills (8:15 p.m.).

The Falcons (5-8) and Saints (4-8) will be coming off bye weeks heading into the NFC South matchup. The Saints defeated the Falcons 27-26 in Atlanta in Week 1.
