    (AP) Atlanta, GA - The Saints coming off a disappointing loss to the Panthers in week 1 could not afford a 2nd straight loss to another division opponent to start the season. The Saints came out determined in this one from the start. Patrick Robinson would pick off a Matt Ryan pass on the 2nd play from scrimmage to set up the Saints offense where James would score on a 4 yard run and a 7-0 lead. The Saints defense would force an Atlanta Punt where 2nd year QB Zabzebski would work the ball down the field eventually finding 2nd year WR Haynes for a TD to go up 14-0. The Falcons however would not quit as they clawed there way back into it on a Jonathan Stewart TD run to make it 14-7. That momentum would be short lived as James would return the ensuing kickoff 101 yards for a TD and a 21-7 Saint lead.​
    The story of this game was the big play abaility of the Saints and the Falcons trying to wear down the Saints defense on long methodical drives. The Falcons would put together another long scoring drive to end the 1st half at 24-14 but once again the quick strike of the Saints would hit the Falcons again to start the 2nd half on a Zabzebski to Haynes 78 yard TD for a 31-14 Saints lead. The Falcons would dominate the remainder on the 3rd Qtr to bring themselves back to within a TD scoting 10 unanswered points to make it 31-24 but the Saints would put the final nail in the coffin on another big play this time to Colston on a big 3rd down where he bounced off a mis tackle and rumbles the rest of the way for a TD.​
    The game would desync after a 3rd and 21 play for the Falcons where both teams re-created the sitiuation and the Saints close out the game scoring a safety and a TD to win it 47-24.​
