Kamara-Jones a marquee matchup when Saints host Falcons

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Alvin Kamara’s next chance to build on his prolific season comes against a Falcons defense that hopes it has an answer to the Saints’ dynamic running back. Saints coach Sean Payton says Atlanta's Deion Jones is among the few NFL linebackers with the athletic ability to defend Kamara one on one. Kamara ranks second in the NFL in yards from scrimmage with 1,134, and touchdowns with 11 through nine games. The Kamara-Jones matchup has occurred four times since Kamara entered the league in 2017. Kamara has yet to reach 100 yards from scrimmage or score against Atlanta when Jones has played.
