Saints sweep Falcons after 17-13 victory

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

The New Orleans Saints completed a sweep of the season series on Thursday night after beating their NFC South rivals, the Atlanta Falcons. Although neither side gave up many points at the end of the 17-13 match, Drew Brees gave enough of an offense to push through, throwing a 44-yard touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham and a 1-yarder to Benjamin Watson in the first half. Atlanta has now lost five straight games in a row, and is now at a season-losing 2-9 record.
