    We kick things off tonight with NO at ATL. ATL trying to keep it's playoff hopes alive, as they currently sit 3rd in their division behind NO and CAR but are still just one spot out of a wild card slot.

    It’s been discussed elsewhere but man the NFC is so much deeper than the AFC. After the Steelers and Pats I’d probably take any of the top 7-8 NFC teams over anyone else in the AFC (Philly, Vikes, the 3 south teams, Rams and Hawks, maybe GB with a healthy Rodgers)

    A shockingly stellar matchup for tonight's game. This could get some actual ratings.

    I can't figure out how to bet it. Over's 51.5, which is a bit lower than I would've expected, but I'm still thinking of teasing it down with NOLA.

    This is a classic "bet the home team" game. In my opinion, of course. This line is begging you to take NO. BEGGING.

    First Thursday night game that I'm looking forward to that didn't involve the Pats.

    Yes. Agreed across the board with this analysis.

    Amazingly, the Falcons control their own destiny to win the NFC South - they have four divisional games left. (Which is terrible schedule-making, by the way.) Trufant is back and active tonight, as is Lattimore; both of these teams have been pretty healthy relative to many other teams in the league.

    That scene must've been emotionally hard for that actor to play, catching on fire and all, given what happened to him on 9/11.

    They kept asking Dan Quinn if they could run one with him, but he kept passing

    That's a pretty weak call, especially considering the helmet to helmet that knocked out Kamara wasn't flagged.

    How many timeouts is Quinn trying to carry over to the second half?

    Did Matt Schaub touch Ryan on the shoulder and entice him to throw that near pick-6?

    Wait - that’s a dead ball foul isn’t it? Why does the clock run down?

    You don’t usually see that called, but I don’t think you blow the play dead for that.

    That burning of the clock by Atlanta ended up helping.

    I would say Matt Ryan has regressed but this is pretty much the QB he's always been. Last year was the aberration.

    Haha, and now Ryan throws a pick, which will lead to at least a field goal attempt by New Orleans.

    30 seconds left. Atlanta has two timeouts, and they throw for a first down at like the NO 45. Instead of calling timeout, or running up and spiking it. They let 15+ seconds burn off the clock, replay then buzzes down to review the catch and upholds the call and there is 14 seconds left on the clock. Atlanta then calls timeout so the clock doesn't start until the snap. I can't even begin to fathom how dumb that is. Then Ryan throws a pick.

    New Orleans makes the field goal as time expires, but they get hit with an illegal formation, and they don't get the time back on the clock. Half is over.

    Wow, I'm so happy I'm a Patriots fan.
