    I would not be surprised if the defense gives up 17 or 37 against ATL. I do have reasonable confidence that this will be a playoff quality defense after the bye.

    I will be surprised if it gives up 37 - perhaps not 17 again, but I doubt 37. The Falcons have a fine, balanced offense, but they have not been challenging the Saints so far as an offensive juggernaut. They scored 19 points against a decent but not great Miami defense. Peyton Manning certainly shredded that same defense on the rare occasions when he got the football last Monday night.

    This defense may be a reasonable playoff quality defense right now, with a few minor changes. They could be a terrific defense by the end of the season.
