Saints/Falcons Is Indeed An Overlooked Rivalry

When you ask NFL fans to name the best rivalries in the league, you’ll get a number of different answers.

Some will say Cowboys/Redskins, while others will say Packers/Bears, and others might say Steelers/Ravens.

But probably only fans of the New Orleans Saints, and the Atlanta Falcons, probably know how heated the rivalry between these two teams has been since they first joined the NFC West together, back in 1970.

This Sunday, the two teams meet in the first of two games this season, with a first-place on the line in the NFC South.

But these two teams seldom need extra motivation to get psyched about playing one another.
