Falcons heavy underdogs in Thanksgiving matchup vs. Saints

If the Falcons pull off the upset Thursday night against the Saints, they will prove a lot of people wrong - including most of the NFL and Vegas oddsmakers.

The Falcons (4-6) are 13-point underdogs in the Thanksgiving Night matchup against the Saints (9-1), who have won nine straight and have averaged 45 points in their last three games.

But the Falcons won in their last prime-time game in New Orleans (45-32 on Monday Night football in 2016) and have won two of their last four games in the Big Easy.
