What a way to kick off the season for the New Orleans Saints! Many people believed that the Saints would steamroll right past the Falcons, that was not the case at all as this game started off pretty slow for New Orleans. Luckily, the game switched in the favor of the visiting team in the 4th quarter as the Saints would turn it around and overcome the Falcons. Let’s dive into the social media reactions from this thriller of a game!
#Saints QB Jameis Winston went 16/19 for 213 yards and two touchdowns with a perfect passer rating in the fourth quarter.— Ross Jackson (@RossJacksonNOLA) September 11, 2022
Hats off to Jameis Winston and the offense for making shit happen and overcoming a really tough first 3 quarters.— Chris Rosvoglou (@RosvoglouReport) September 11, 2022
Jameis Winston led his team from 16 behind in the fourth quarter and most (if not all) national media won't give him that credit.— Dennis Allen du Monde ⚜ (@whodat2835) September 11, 2022
Theyll wait for the next zany workout video or soundbite to speak on him again.
Aside from Winston’s great poise and leadership in the 4th quarter, the big story of the game was none other than Michael Thomas.

It wouldn’t be Falcons hate week without the Who Dat Nation poking fun at Atlanta. The fanbase surely had a lot to say about the Falcons fumbling yet another double-digit lead.

Even though the win wasn’t pretty, the Saints are now 1-0 to start the season. Next up is a date with Tampa Bay, a game that will have all types of emotion surrounding it. We will be back here again next week for more social media reactions!
