Atlanta Falcons (12-3) wide receiver Roddy White decided to talk a little — OK, maybe a lot — of trash this week via his Twitter and let the “Aints” know that they would not come into his house and win.
Someone forgot to give the New Orleans Saints (11-4) the memo.
The Saints traveled to Atlanta on Monday night and defeated the Falcons 17-14 in a building where Matt Ryan was 19-1 as a starter in his career. Drew Brees, Pierre Thomas, and the rest of the Saints didn’t care for that stat, though, as they took the win and will return to the playoffs.
