Rivalries & Top Games to Attend
Saints vs Falcons
Rival Team: Atlanta Falcons
The biggest rival for the New Orleans Saints is the Atlanta Falcons. The rivalry has even garnered the nickname the “Southern Showdown” or “Dixie Championship” due to its importance among the fans. Currently, the Falcons lead the all-time series 49-43, but since Sean Payton and Drew Brees showed up on the scene the Saints have dominated the series with 13 victories out of the last 17 matchups. These are by far the most intense games for fans to go to as the rivalry is the oldest and most established in the NFC South.
Saints vs Buccaneers
Rival Team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Newer and less established than the Southern Showdown, the rivalry between the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers still guarantees a great game-day experience! The rivalry dates back 1977 when the Saints handed the Buccaneers their first win in franchise history after starting off 0-26. Today, these games are still sure to excite fans from all over, so make your way to New Orleans when the Buccaneers are in town.
