Week 14 of the 2017-18 National Football League regular season officially kicks off on Thursday night when the Atlanta Falcons welcome the NFC South rival New Orleans Saints to Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Both teams have serious potential for fireworks on offense, but each has had its fair share of obstacles in recent weeks. The 7-5 Falcons desperately need a win over the 9-3 Saints to have a realistic shot at a second straight NFC South title. Beating the Saints on Thursday will give the Falcons a mulligan and mean they will only have to finish 2-1 down the stretch to nearly certainly make the playoffs.

Trufant cleared the concussion protocol Monday and will be a key piece in Atlanta's attempt to contain Drew Brees' aerial attack. The Falcons have not been good against the run.

Julio Jones will again have a favorable match-up this week with no true shutdown corner on the Saints Jones could look to have another huge day if the Falcons feed Julio.

How can you tune in to Thursday night's game between New Orleans and Atlanta?
