Div gm of NFC South rivals.so line is close, but should it be?
ATL imploded last yr after Julio Jones broke a screw in his foot. M Ryan was sacked 44 times and S. Jackson only got 543 yds.
J. Jones is back, but S. Jackson is nursing a hamstring and this is his 11th season (ie. too old), speaking of old this is R. White's 10th season and had only 711 yds 3 tds last yr.
ATL lost LT Sam Backer in the preseason to patellar tendon, and rookie J. Matthews will be in the hot seat. Can you say holding? or more like "sacked again".
Meanwhile NO looks just as good as last yr maybe better with the draft of a speedster deep threat Brandin Cooks. and they picked up J.Byrd in FA after letting R. Harper go.
Unless D Freeman RB is a breakout star for ATL, I think it will be a Hard Knock for ATL to cover vs NO.
Taking NO -3
