The New Orleans Saints have won four games in a row in Atlanta. They’ve seen plenty of success against the Falcons over the past few seasons. This season, the Saints open their regular season schedule against them. It will seemingly be a bit tougher since the Falcons will have one of their most talented players available.
Rookie wide receiver Drake London is on track to play against the Saints, according to injury reports. He is trending up after sustaining an injury against the Lions in the preseason. Some believed it may have been serious, but his recovery has gone very well. The team has been patient with him.

His return to practice is a big step forward.
London is listed as the top WR on the depth chart for the Falcons. London and tight end Kyle Pitts will be the most difficult challenges for the Saints to defend. Both possess elite size and downfield ability.
A healthy Drake London certainly creates a tougher game for the Saints on Sunday. The Saints play the Falcons at noon CST.
