The New Orleans Saints' only divisional win this season came back in Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons. Since then, they've gone 0-3 in their divisional games, which says something because, if you haven't noticed, the NFC South is terrible.
The Saints were mostly inept during that Week 1 game but fired back in the fourth quarter to rally and win when it mattered the most. Since that game, however, the Saints have only won three games and are in the bottom of the worst division of football. It says a lot about who they are as a team this year.
The Falcons aren't exactly doing stellar things either (no one in the NFC South is) but they're starting their third-round rookie quarterback, Desmond Ridder, on Sunday. If he plays well, at least they have that to hang their hats on.
