Atlanta- For the second time in the past three weeks, the New Orleans Saints traveled to the east and convincingly handled a divisional opponent, keeping their pursuit of a coveted playoff spot very much alive. The Saints defeated the Falcons, 34-14, just two weeks after traveling to Carolina and defeating the Carolina Panthers, 31-6.

The Saints, who improved to 6-7 with the victory, picked up their fifth conference win of the season, an important tie-breaker that could come into play if the Saints are able to match another team’s win tally. Of the team’s vying for a postseason bid, the Vikings also own 5 conference wins, while the Redskins and Lions each have four. Arizona, also 6-7, owns three wins and travels to New Orleans for a huge game next Sunday afternoon in what should be a raucous Superdome.
