Going back over Falcons injury situation, Dan Quinn called TE Austin Hooper (MCL) and RB Devonta Freeman (foot) longshots for this week but wouldn't put a sure timetable on either player. Quinn denied report that Hooper will be out a month, and a source indicated to ESPN Hooper's status is consider more “week to week” than anything, although he won't play at Carolina on Sunday. Quinn said QB Matt Ryan would just do walkthrough stuff Wednesday after returning to action off a sprained ankle.

Falcons TE Austin Hooper has four straight games with TD reception, tied with Tony Gonzalez for the longest ever by a Falcons TE. Overall, it's tied for the fifth-longest receiving TD streak in franchise history

Falcons look much different than a 1-7 team while leading the Saints 13-6 at halftime. The defense has showed up with a couple third-down sacks by De'Vondre Campbell and Adrian Clayborn. There's been nice variety on offense with coordinator Dirk Koetter using all of his personnel. And special teams has been solid with Kenjon Barner on returns and Younghoe Koo kicking field goals. Can the Falcons keep up the momentum? They sorely need this win to break six-game losing streak.
