There’s nothing better than a shot being fired on a Wednesday with a huge NFL contest being played on Thursday instead of Sunday.
The Saints and Atlanta Falcons will do battle again, less than two weeks after New Orleans saved their season and ended the Falcons 9 game winning streak.
These two teams don’t like each other, and the rivalry should be heated except for one problem.
The New Orleans Saints via linebacker Curtis Lofton don’t even see the Saints as rivals according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
“Being here in this program, I feel like they see it as a divisional game, not a rivalry game,” Lofton said.
“For me, personally, I prefer to go out and do my job and keep my mouth shut and let my actions speak for me instead of words,” Lofton said Tuesday. “Some guys love to yap back and forth. It just depends the type person you are.”
New Orleans has won 11 of the last 13 against Atlanta, so the Falcons will definitely have to adjust the win column a bit before the Saints start to take them serious.
