2. Los Angeles Rams

It was really hard watching the Rams win the Super Bowl and hoist the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in 20 years. Saints fans have a major bone to pick with the Rams after the infamous no-call in the 2018 NFC Championship Game. It still hurts to talk about.

That being said, whenever the Saints and Rams square off, we’re always in for a good game. That NFC title game was proof of it and even though the good guys were robbed of a win and a trip to the Super Bowl, the NFL knows these two teams hate each other and it’d be a missed opportunity not to pit them against each other in primetime.

The Saints have not taken down the Rams since the two faced each other in the 2018 regular season with NOLA winning by 10 points. These two also haven’t played a game against each other since the 2019 regular season when Drew Brees got injured and had to miss five games.

This is a heated rivalry and it needs to be featured under the lights.
