The New Orleans Saints are headed home and no team’s fanbase is happier about that fact then the Atlanta Falcons. The idea of the Saints coming to Atlanta didn’t sit well and had fans pulling for an improbable Ram’s win.
With an assist from the officiating crew, the Rams did just that beating the Saints on their way to a Super Bowl berth.
Misery loves company and few teams have endured more miserable losses than the Falcons and Saints over the last three seasons.
Combined these teams have four devastating postseason losses over the last three seasons. This should make for interesting ammo next time these teams meet next season.
For now, however, the Falcons and their fans can take satisfaction in the fact the Saints will be sitting at home watching the Super Bowl from the same place the Falcons will be, their couch.
The Rams will be using the Falcon’s practice facilities and field much to the relief of Falcon’s fans everywhere.
For the Saints, you have to wonder if their window is closing with limited options at receiver and a quarterback who has aged visibly.
Without a defense built to carry their team the question for the Saints will be are they capable of a repeat performance in 2019? On the other side, the Falcons are going to be much improved with a healthy defense and a new coaching staff.
The Super Bowl window may have been closed in New Orleans and no team is happier about it then the Falcons. The LA Rams and New England Patriots will matchup in Atlanta with a battle of the old dynasty against the new kids who will have a chance to end another dynasty on Super Bowl Sunday.
