Falcons Vs. Saints: Atlanta's Offensive Weapons Are All Available Versus New Orleans

In one of the more memorable games of the 2011 season, the New Orleans Saints were able to get by the Atlanta Falcons 26-23 on November 13th that will be remembered for the yard that wasn't gained and the talent that wasn't on the field for that game.

Michael Turner was stuffed on 4th and 1 on their own side of the field that helped the Saints defeat the Falcons in overtime. The offensive line was banged up, wide receiver Julio Jones went out with a hamstring injury and for many in Atlanta they feel like they let one get away.

Coach Mike Smith spoke on Wednesday on having the entire arsenal of offensive weapons prepared for the second matchup with the Saints:

"We certainly are in better shape in terms of the health of the players in the wide receiver group right now than we were the first time we played them."

The Saints will host the Falcons on Monday Night Football on the day after Christmas.
