Falcons Defeated Saints

Playing in New Orleans, the Atlanta Falcons beat the Saints by a score of 27-17. The win pushed the Falcons to 12-2 for the season - a new record (that would subsequently be broken) for best start in franchise history. The win also tied the Falcons’ record for most wins in a season (first set in 1980 when they went 12-4 for the entire season) - a record that would also be broken the following week. The win also was the seventh in a row, tying a franchise record set in 1973 - another record that would be broken the following week.
