FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. -- In case you missed it or you don't follow Dan Quinn on Twitter, the Falcons coach is expecting fans to show up in full force for Thursday night's showdown with NFC South rival New Orleans. The game marks a critical four-game stretch -- all against NFC South opponents -- that will determine their postseason fate.
Up first are the Saints (9-3), a team Atlanta will see twice in December. Quinn tweeted Falcons fans on Wednesday and provided a letter asking them to "crank the noise to another level" and even provided their employers an excuse to be late for work on Friday.

An 8:30 p.m. ET kickoff is scheduled for Thursday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
