Saints Overtake The Falcons

While doing a bit of research this evening a very notable fact became apparent. For the first time in the history of the longtime rivals, the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons, the Saints have surpassed the Falcons in total regular season victories. The Saints' week 12 17-13 win over the Falcons brought the franchise record to 315-394-5. The Falcons loss dropped them to 314-411-6. A Falcons' win in week 13 coupled with a Saints' loss evened up the historical standing once again, but this week the Saints regained the lead with win number 316 while the Falcons remained mired at 315.

It may have taken 46 years, but the Saints (with one less year in the league) have pushed yet another pin into the body of that mangy feathered voodoo doll.

Another FAIL for the Falcons.

This season just keeps getting better and better.

Atlanta still leads the all-time series 47-43. We should be able to even that up in 2 years.

We still hold the more important records against Atlanta .

Super Bowls 1-0
NFC Championship Games 1-0

Should take them a few coaches to even tie it.
