When the NFL schedule came out long ago, this Thursday’s NFC South battle between the Falcons and Saints was one of the games circled as a huge test for Matt Ryan’s squad on its path to New York.

I saw this story coming together some time ago, a beautiful city-wide event in support of a Make-A-Wish Foundation wish. I don’t believe in the “all news is negative” slant that many people take when discussing newspapers and the evening news. No, there are positive pieces in the mix. I know that we’re conditioned on [...]
