Breaking: The NFL still doesn’t know what a catch is

Breaking: The NFL still doesn’t know what a catch is We’re
midway through the third quarter Atlanta Falcons

 , and a potentially game-changing play was just
erased because the NFL still hasn’t decided what a catch is. Julio Jones bobbled
and then hauled in a long Matt Ryan ball near the sideline, which was ruled
incomplete. Dan Quinn subsequently challenged that ruling, which after some
deliberation was confirmed as called on the field. Check the replay:This has
been a really ugly game so far, replete with injuries and sloppy execution, so
one of the bright spots being rendered null due to the NFL’s complete confusion
as to what constitutes a catch is borderline infuriating. Even the booth seemed
confused by this one, given that Julio had the ball pinned against his shoulder
as he slid toward the sideline. Considering both teams have had plenty of things
to complain about in this one, maybe the officiating just isn’t good tonight.
The Falcons are dropping like flies, the Eagles just scored, and that ridiculous
call looms large for Atlanta.Falcons vs. Saints final score predictions: Will
Atlanta triumph in a shootout? Eric Robinson Falcons 38, Saints 30 No Takk, no
Devonta, no Debo, no Keanu. Spells trouble, right? It’s understandable if it
does but when you account for the fact that the Saints are 29th in overall
defense, 30th in points, and 29th in passing yards allowed Womens

 , it’s easy to this as a great
matchup for a Falcons offense that found a groove last week against a good
Carolina defense. Two keys that are important in this matchup is which team can
win on 3rd downs on defense and can the Falcons find offensive rhythm through
Ridley, Sanu, Hooper, Coleman, and Smith once again. The Saints have lost four
of their last six games in Atlanta. Cory WoodroofFalcons 38, Saints 34 I’m in
line with Eric on the point totals, but I’m expecting far-more heartburn for
this one. The Falcons might light it up on offense now that Steve Sarkisian is
on a roll, and they really might have to if this defense plays like it did last
week down the stretch against one of the all-time great comeback quarterbacks in
Drew Brees. Losing Deion and Keanu and trying to stop Alvin Kamara is going to
be a nightmarish feat, but I actually have faith that Atlanta’s secondary can
maintain Michael Thomas and sell out in the front seven to slow Kamara as much
as possible. This one should get plenty of fireworks in as long as our offense
maintains pace. If Sark has a down week, Atlanta won’t win this. I’m betting
he’ll find enough plays to outscore the Saints and build a nice, consistent
streak to carry into that now-test against Cincinnati.Dave ChoateFalcons 30,
Saints 24I have the Saints scoring less than 30 points, which seems ridiculous
given the challenges the Falcons have been facing on defense with key players
out. Yet it’s a Falcons-Saints game, where nothing goes as planned, and I feel
pretty good about this prediction.The Saints just aren’t there yet. Their
defense has regressed, but their offense is also shakier than it looks if you’re
just glancing at the counting stats ,
given the way they felt way behind against Tampa Bay before making a comeback
and stayed quiet until late against Cleveland. I think the Falcons, who have
shown they can bedevil Drew Brees under Dan Quinn, will be able to do enough to
hold this team in check, and I have a lot of confidence in the offense’s ability
to put points on the board against the worst defense they’ve faced thus
far.Anything can happen in a game like this, but the Falcons should be able to
win this even with their pile of injuries. Matt ChambersFalcons 36, Saints 32I
am very worried about the Falcons defense, but then again, the Saints haven’t
looked much like competitors this season. With 3 of the team’s top 5 defensive
players out for Sunday, the Falcons will need to score 27+ points to get the
win. Against the Saints, they can definitely do that. These games usually end on
the very last drive, and I sure as hell won’t be picking the Saints to pull out
that W.Kyle McClendonFalcons 31, Saints 28This game SHOULD be a shootout due to
the wealth of injuries on Atlanta’s defense and the overall mediocrity of the
Saints’ defense. I think it is a high scoring game that comes down to who has
the ball most and who has it last. The Falcons defense will have a tough time
stopping the Saints, but I don’t think it will be any easier for the New Orleans
defense against Matt Ryan and company. If Ryan is on his game again and the
offensive line plays well, the Falcons will win a close one. If not, this one
could hurt. I’m going to bank on Matt Bryant making a kick and Will Lutz missing
one to give Atlanta the win in the first meeting between the two teams.
