Atlanta hasn't gotten a ton out of Freeman this season, while the running game as a whole has struggled to find room behind the team's new-look offensive line. Fellow end Adrian Clayborn and linebacker De'Vondre Campbell each had one.

Atlanta Falcons will never live this game down.

The Buccaneers will play consecutive home games for the first time in 2019.

Lattimore was producing one of his best games this season before exiting prior to halftime, holding star Falcons receiver Julio Jones to zero catches. The Falcons were the first Saints opponent since Seattle in Week 3 to gain more than 257 yards.

The Saints only ran for 54 yards as well, the lowest this year. Michael Thomas hauled in 13 catches for 152 yards in the loss.

The Saints also were mistake-prone, committing committed 12 penalties for 90 yards. That led to Younghoe Koo's 48-yard field goal, which widened Atlanta's lead to 23-9.

The Falcons have two tight ends behind Austin Hooper on the depth chart: Luke Stocker and Jaeden Graham. Defensive back Damontae Kazee was treated after tackling Saints running back Latavius Murray in the third quarter. And got a little surprise in the fourth quarter. Safety Kemal Ishmael received treatment on the field in the final minutes but was able to walk to the sideline.

The Saints lost 26-9 at home to their bitter NFC South rival Sunday and trailed for most of the game.
