Since 1967, the Saints and Falcons have squared off eighty-four times. Eighty-three regular season games and one in post season. Of those games, Atlanta has claimed forty-five victories to the Saints thirty-nine.
Both teams are tied with four Division Championships each, one Conference Championship each, and one Super Bowl appearance each.
Atlanta leads Wild Card appearances with six to New Orleans four. The Saints however do have the ultimate one up on the Falcons in Super Bowl Championships. The Saints have one to the Falcons zero!
Local music artist Abdul D. Tentmaker actually coined a song for the last Falcons game on December 27, 2010. Abdul sang the song on Saints flagship station WWL after he said that Falcons fans were being ruthless towards the Saints.
He named the song, “It Don’t Mean A Thing If You Ain’t Got That Ring”. Poetic if I may say so myself.
Of course, poetic justice has been repeated throughout the years with the two teams even swapping players at times. Three of which are actually still beloved by Saints fans even after their departure.
