NFC South clash on Thursday Night Football

The Atlanta Falcons play the New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football. That's a game that should interest every Bucs fan, if only to see a division rival flounder. Schadenfreude about the Saints, or minor hope that the Falcons' foibles get the Bucs back into the division race.

The Bucs are unlikely to win the division, but it's not impossible. If the Saints win tonight, Tampa Bay will be two games out of first place -- not an insurmountable lead at all, given that they've yet to play the Falcons. Of course, actually beating the Falcons would be a minor miracle given the way the Bucs have (mostly) played. We can hope.

Here's your open thread for today's game.
