How good is this rivalry?



The New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons. Linked by geography forever and conference division for decades. It may never be Packers-Bears, but I do feel this has become one of the NFLs greatest rivalries.

It's a great rivalry, but the W-L doesn't really show it. Nearly every one of our games is decided by 4 points or less.

So really it's perfect. Awesome, dramatic games against a team we hate that we almost always win

It's a nice rivalry of two rival cities (too bad Houston and NO aren't in the same division). It will never be Bears-Packers, but a few great high profile games could make it Cowboys-Redskins

In the 10 years before Brees and Payton the Falcons had won 14 of 20. Since then it has been Saints winning 13 of 16. Over all the Falcons lead the series 47-43. I would say that is a damn good rivalry.
