The Atlanta Falcons have begun the 2013 season where they left off the last time we saw them play a meaningful football game: a few yards short of a win. For the seventh time since 2008, the Falcons dropped a game to the Saints by a touchdown or less.
With so many weapons on offense, how did Atlanta manage just 17 points? Which players exceeded expectations? Which players left more to be desired with their performance?
We broke down Sunday's game film to help answer those questions and offer our game grades for each position group on Atlanta's roster. Each position group will receive an overall grade, as well as an analysis of the good, the bad and the ugly from each unit's respective play against the Saints.
