It’s a tale of two teams at the opposite end on Sunday when the 1-7 Falcons take on the 7-1 Saints in New Orleans.

Here’s a preview of the Sunday NFC South showdown from NFL Films.

Saints RB Alvin Kamara Set to Return After Two Game Absence

The Saints offense will get a boost on Sunday when they take on the 1-7 Falcons, as the team is expected to have feature running back Alvin Kamara back in the lineup.

Kamara, who missed the Saints’ past two games before their Week 9 bye because of knee and ankle injuries, said he felt good after returning to full practice participation on Thursday. And coach Sean Payton said, “I fully expect him to be ready to play” at home Sunday.

The running back said he feels fresh after three Sundays off but wouldn’t call it a benefit because he missed being on the field.

“It’s like a downfall, kind of, because I wish I was out there,” Kamara said with a smile. “I’m happy to be back, just happy to be back practicing on the field with my teammates, happy to be back kind of like a regular functioning member of this team. Because when you’re hurt, you’re kind of like on the back burner a little bit. You kind of miss out.”

Kamara insisted that there is no jealousy or selfish desire to take his role back from veteran backup Latavius Murray, however.

Murray ran wild in Kamara’s absence, with at least 150 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in each game.

Kamara said he will be happy to share the workload with Murray going forward — like he did over the past two years with Mark Ingram.

“It’s not like I’m selfish. I don’t need the ball every play. He’s fully capable, too. So I think we’ll get a good balance going, and it will be hard to stop,” said Kamara, who said he talked to Murray early this season about how the touches would eventually balance out, even though Kamara was getting a heavy share of the workload at the time.

“And he was like, ‘I’m good. I’m not tripping,'” Kamara added. “I think it’s an unselfish team. … So however it shakes out, it shakes out. I’m ready.”
