The New Orleans Saints became the first NFL team to clinch a playoff spot, winning the NFC South on Thanksgiving night and serving up some revenge on the rival Atlanta Falcons for good measure.

The Saints (10-2) sacked Matt Ryan nine times while beating Atlanta 26-18 just 18 days after their stunning 26-9 loss in the Superdome to these same Falcons (3-9). (READ MORE) by Mike Triplett | ESPN

Taysom Hill blocked a punt to set up his 3-yard touchdown catch, later scored on a 30-yard run and the New Orleans Saints clinched their third straight NFC South title by beating the Atlanta Falcons 26-18 on Thursday night.
