Week 16: at New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Atlanta prevailed 37-34 in overtime the last time these divisional rivals clashed (Week 1) - Steven Jackson had 12/53/0 rushing and 1/0/0 receiving to his credit during the game, while Jacquizz Rodgers (6/34/1 rushing and 1/1/0 receiving) found pay dirt during the game. Since early in the year, the Falcons have settled on feeding Jackson the ball 16-18 times in most contests (he's amassed 186/698/6 rushing and 19/134/0 receiving during 2014), while varying the change-of-pace duties between Rodgers (38/144/1 rushing with 25/151/1 receiving) and newcomer Devonta Freeman (54/199/0 with 25/174/1). In aggregate, the Falcons are 24th in the NFL averaging 96.7 yards rushing per game, with 10 rushing scores registered so far. The Saints' rush D averages 132.9 yards rushing allowed per game (29th in the NFL) and just over one rushing score given up per game, with 15 allowed over 14 games. One week after getting stomped 41-10 by the Panthers (40/271/2 rushing given up to Carolina) New Orleans held Chicago's Matt Forte and company to 20/125/0 as a group. This is a good matchup for Jackson and company.
