The Falcons won the NFC South in 2016 and proceeded to make the Super Bowl before losing in heartbreaking fashion to the Patriots, while the Saints won the division in 2017 before losing in heartbreaking fashion to the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC divisional round.

New Orleans finished a game ahead of the Falcons in last year’s race after the two teams split their matchups.

Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune noted, “The Saints-Falcons series is one of the most intense and long-running rivalries in the NFL and has become a favorite of the league’s network broadcast partners. This year will mark the 10th time in the past 12 seasons that one of the games in the annual series has been broadcast in prime time.”
