The Saints suffered the most improbable loss of the season, getting steamrolled 26-9 at home by the rival Falcons. They were favored by 13.5 points according to Caesars Sportsbook – the biggest favorites to lose a game this season.


Falcons stun first-place Saints, 26-9

Matt Ryan passed for two touchdowns and the Atlanta Falcons ended their six-game slide with a 26-9 victory over the Saints on Sunday that stopped New Orleans' six-game winning streak.

One of many reasons the 7-1 Saints are flailing against the 1-7 Falcons today: They have allowed four sacks. Coming into the game, Atlanta ranked dead last in the NFL with seven sacks on the entire season.

Penalties killed the Saints in the first half — 7 of them for 52 yards, including three of them during Atlanta's 17-play touchdown drive. Saints WR Michael Thomas was also flagged for grabbing a face mask shortly before halftime, forcing the Saints to settle for a FG. Atlanta leads 13-6, and the Saints will need to play a lot cleaner in the second half.

Saints CB Marshon Lattimore walked back to the locker room after being evaluated by the training staff. So far he has done an excellent job while shadowing Falcons WR Julio Jones. Jones hasn't caught a pass — and Lattimore separated him from the ball once with a big hit on a short pass. However, Lattimore did get flagged for defensive holding against Jones on Atlanta's touchdown drive.

The Saints have their full offensive arsenal helatht now that RB Alvin Kamara and TE Jared Cook have returned from injuries. "It's scary. We got so much talent. I think we know what we're capable of," Kamara said. "Knowing what we have, everybody's excited."

As Kamara returns, Saints RB willing to split reps

Running back Kamara, who missed the Saints' past two games before their Week 9 bye because of knee and ankle injuries, said he felt good after Thursday's practice. And coach Sean Payton said, "I fully expect him to be ready to play" on Sunday.

Mike Triplett ESPN Staff Writer 

Saints RB Alvin Kamara said he feels good and plans to play Sunday like he hasn't "missed a beat." He also said he would be perfectly fine sharing some of the workload with Latavius Murray.
