Sunday marked the first official start for Trevor Seimian as QB1. With a bitter rival in the Atlanta Falcons, the New Orleans Saints were set for the usual back and forth duel between these two NFC South teams. For most of the game, the Falcons dominated the Saints on all fronts thanks in part to the lack of capability of the Saints WR corps. Late in the 4th quarter, this game turned into a high blood pressure situation for the Who Dat nation. A game winning field goal would all but seal the deal for Atlanta. Let’s dive into the social media reactions of this wild battle in the NFC south.

Atlanta won at New Orleans.
Jacksonville on verge of beating Buffalo.
Saints really beat GB and TB. Two of the best teams in the NFL.— Jeremy (@JKMJXH3) November 7, 2021
Then they lose to the 4-5 Panthers, 3-6 Giants, and 4-4 Falcons.
Most #Saints thing, ever.
All 3 of the Saints losses have come after a big win— Sultan of Sarcasm (@BattleRapBets) November 8, 2021
Carolina, a week after beating a GB team many said is top 2 in the nfc
Giants, a week after beating the coaching in his house

#Saints go for 2pt twice.— The Fly Route Podcast (@TheFlyRoutePod) November 7, 2021
Lost to the Falcons by 2.
Shocked by the way they used Kamara AND Taysom Hill on both of them. Payton was better off kicking and going to OT if that was the gameplan.
Hill got no snaps at QB
Kamara up the middle#DirtyBirds with the upset
Saints beating TB last week and dropping one to the Falcons is the most Saints thing ever— Ryan (@datboywolf) November 7, 2021
Taysom put life into this game and that's just facts. Opinions on QB1 of the future aside— Maddy Hudak (@MaddyHudak_94) November 7, 2021
I'm having flashbacks to the Vikings playoff game. Taysom Hill comes in ... gives a spark, gets pulled, the starter immediately fumbles.— Jeff Nowak (@Jeff_Nowak) November 7, 2021
I would fire off some tweets about how this Saints’ loss bothered me, but it really didn’t.— Chris Rosvoglou (@RosvoglouReport) November 7, 2021
They’re still 5-3. Trevor Siemian looked more than competent. The defense will shake back.
Trevor Siemian led an incredible comeback only for his defense to blow it. Maybe he is the next Drew Brees!— Evan Saacks (@evansaacks) November 7, 2021
Trevor Siemian’s accuracy is impressive— ✈︎ (@MookDontMiss) November 7, 2021
I see a lot of Falcons (and Bucs?) fans going hard on here. Keep that energy. Don’t come to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, Essence Fest, Jazz Fest or your little random weekend getaways. #Saints pic.twitter.com/lVJSKb4eod— Farrah Yvette (@farrah_yvette) November 7, 2021
Well, moving on from here, the Saints have a date with the Tennessee Titans next Sunday. Hopefully Sean Payton can make some coaching adjustments as this upcoming game will not be easy against a really good Titans team. I will be here next Monday to highlight more social media reactions.
