First-place in the NFC South will be on the line on Sunday when the New Orleans Saints travel to Atlanta, Ga., to take on the Atlanta Falcons.

The Saints defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, 27-16, but haven't won consecutive games in a month.

what they have done is win in the month of November, as they take a nine-game winning streak in the month into the game, dating back to 2009.

The Saints are 6-3 on the year, while the Falcons stand at 5-3.

This will be the first of two meeting between the two teams this season.

Kick-off time is scheduled for noon.
