The New Orleans Saints are back in action after a week off, and they face not only their biggest rival in the Atlanta Falcons, but a team that is a near mirror-image of themselves as one that has underachieved but still has plenty of time to get where they want to go.
One of those teams will take a big step toward winning the NFC South this week, and in particular for the Black and Gold, they potentially could go back above .500 and open up a two-game lead in the division with a win.
What is the opening line, and what are the opening numbers for other big games around the NFL in Week 12, such as Jaguars-Texans, Colts-Bucs and Broncos-Browns? And let’s don’t forget it’s Thanksgiving week: Not only do we have our regular three games on Thursday, but for the first time we have a Black Friday game.
We have the entire slate here, along with the early lines from our partners at Caesars Sportsbook (as of Monday morning) and what network will be broadcast each game.
