Kyle Pitts' 176.6 PPR fantasy points are the fourth-most by a rookie tight end in NFL history. One can only imagine what that total might've been had he had greater fortune in the touchdown column.

Saints 30, Falcons 20: Atlanta's season ends the way so many of its games against better-than-average NFL competition ended this season -- with a double-digit loss. Atlanta was good in close games -- 7-2 in one-possession games, something Arthur Smith mentioned after Sunday's loss -- too often it just couldn't hang with teams that had more talent. And that was the story of Smith's first year, something the Falcons are hoping to fix in Year 2.

Saints 24, Falcons 6: Another potential playoff team, another seemingly bad rout against the Falcons. There's still 30 minutes to go, but Atlanta's offense has been stagnant (69 yards) and defense has been a sieve (242 yards allowed). Nothing is really working and the Falcons are 30 minutes from heading home for the next few months potentially with another Top 10 pick for next season's draft.
