Saints vs. Falcons: Full Roster Report Card Grades for Atlanta

The Atlanta Falcons' disappointing 2013 season began with a loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1. 

On Thursday night, the Saints completed a season sweep of Atlanta with a 17-13 win that officially eliminated the defending NFC South champion Falcons from the divisional race.

At 2-9, the Atlanta Falcons are now assured of their first losing season under general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith.

Thursday night's game played out much like Atlanta's first four losses of this lost 2013 season. 

The Falcons were able to stay in the game and give themselves a chance to win, but at the end of the day they just couldn't make the outcome-determining plays that separate the winners from the losers in this league.

Join us as we break down how the Falcons lost their fifth-straight game and give out our game grades in our weekly full roster report card for Atlanta.
