The Falcons hosted the Saints at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, November 26.

The drive ended up resulting in a pick-six for the Falcons.

With the loss, the Saints dropped to a 5-6 record this season. New Orleans’ next game is at home against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, December 3 at 11 a.m. (MT) on FOX.
