Pickin’ With Pano: NFL Week 12 (TNF Edition)

What a debut by the guru David Panosian. If it were not for a blown call by the refs on Monday Night (I think we all know which one), Pano would have gone 4-1, with the lone loss being the Jets debacle in Buffalo. We present to you now, David’s feeling for Thursday Night’s NFC South clash between the Saints and Falcons. Be sure to check back every Friday for his picks for Sunday’s games, and every Monday and Thursday for the national matchups. If you are on Twitter, please add Pano to your list of followers for more great NFL information, including Fantasy Football. Good Luck in Week 12!!

Week 11 Record: 3-2
Season To Date: 3-2

New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons (+8.5):
The New Orleans Saints, coming off of a very hard fought victory against the San Francisco 49ers, head to Atlanta to face off against their division rival the Falcons on Thursday Night Football. It has obviously been a very disappointing season for the Falcons, who got thrashed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to continue their downward spiral. One may look at this matchup and think that the Saints will have little trouble against a defense that Bobby Rainey and Vincent Jackson thrashed on Sunday, but I will go with a gut feeling here and say the Falcons get up for this game on national TV, and treat it as their “playoff” game. Playing for pride, the Falcons keep this one close.  I am not ready to call the outright upset, but I think the Falcons can keep this within 8.5 points.  Roddy White and Steven Jackson are becoming healthier by the week, and Tony Gonzalez caught 6 balls while playing through injury, so there are weapons here that Matt Ryan can utilize in an effort to keep this game close. Again, I expect the Falcons to cover the spread.
