Falcons Lose, New Orleans Saints Can Lead By 2 With Win Over Lions
Written by 

falcons_logoDue to Atlanta’s loss to the Houston Texans today, the New Orleans Saints could take two-game lead in the NFC South over its rival, the Falcons with four games left in the 2011 season should the team defeat the Detroit Lions in the Mercedes Benz Superdome Sunday night.

 The Falcons fell to the Titans 17-10 on Sunday and now sport a 7-5 record. The Saints, who take on the Detroit Lions currently, have an 8-3 record and a victory would bring its record to 9-3 with four games to go.

The Saints meet the Tennessee Titans, the Minnesota Vikings, the Falcons and the Carolina Panthers in its next four games. The Titans and the Vikings games are away but the Falcons and the Panthers matches are in the Superdome.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
