The New Orleans Saints were supposed to lose this game.
They were without their future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. They were starting a 30-year-old quarterback making his first NFL start. The Atlanta Falcons were going to be starting both of their top-tier wide receivers in Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, and the Saints defense was going to be without their number one cornerback in Marshon Lattimore.
The Saints were supposed to lose this game.
But the Falcons just wanted to lose more.
The Saints were able to put a whooping on their division rivals, beating the Falcons like a drum, 24-9. The Saints defense played incredibly well, keeping the Falcons out of the endzone all came and sacking Matt Ryan a whopping EIGHT times on the day.
So surely the Who Dat Nation took the win in stride with grace and humility right?

STOP THE COUNT
I remember a time when the saints used to get up for a game against the falcons. Now, they’re just a speed bump on the way to another division title. ⚜️— stan verrett (@stanverrett) November 22, 2020

-Trey Hendrickson leads the NFL in sacks. 2020 continues to be ridiculous
- Sean Payton still arrogant and brilliant offensively
- Cam Jordan is GOAT Falcon killer, it’s not even an argument
- Taysom sure is fun as hell. Gonna be hysterical 3 more Weeks
