This Thursday night the one-loss Atlanta Falcons will take on the New Orleans Saints on the NFL Network. Since last week was Thanksgiving, 3 games were played on Thursday, but this Thursday, the 29th, the league will return to the regularly scheduled one-game Thursday Night Football.
The Falcons will be the home team, and for the 2nd time this season will wear their alternatives jerseys. These black jerseys with white lettering include all red helmets and white pants. The first time the Falcons wore their alternatives this season, in week 4, the team beat the Carolina Panthers, but the last time the dirty birds lost in the alternatives was last season vs. the New Orleans Saints, the only ever loss in the alternatives uniforms.

Wednesday’s answer: The Little Red Flag is a Harvard pennant that, since 1884, has been waved by Harvard's "most loyal fan" after each score by Harvard during The Game. The tradition began with Frederick Plummer, class of 1888, who attended the Harvard-Yale game 59 times between 1884 and his death in 1948.
