It was ugly for the Falcons on the road at New Orleans Sunday. QB Matt Ryan was sacked eight times and hit 11 other times on dropbacks as Atlanta lost 24-9 to the Saints.
The Falcons fall to 3-7 on the season, while the Saints improved to 8-2.
Star receiver Julio Jones was slowed by a bad hamstring and wasn’t a factor in the game.
The Saints were playing without QB Drew Brees and turned to backup Taysom Hill. He completed 18-of-23 passes for 233 yards.
