Who is the New Orleans Saints Biggest NFC South Rival?

The title is enough.

Which NFC South team is the biggest rival of the New Orleans Saints? If this question is too abstract for you to wrap your brain around, think of it this way: if the Saints only win two games this season, and they were against the same team, who would you want to beat? Or put another way, if the Saints are unaffected by the outcome of a game, which NFC South team would you be cheering against loudest to lose a given game?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - The Saints lead the head-to-head record 30-17. Each team has one Super Bowl to their name, with the Bucs owning one more NFC South division title (6 to 5).

Has to be Atlanta in my opinion.

It's Atlanta at the minute in my opinion but I'm starting to hate Carolina more because of Cam Newton and they've swept us the last two years.

It has, and always will be Atlanta...

That doesn't mean it won't get chippy with Carolina, who's owned us as of late, or Tampa Bay, if they can get off the mat...

No doubt about it... Atlanta. However, Carolina is our biggest obstacle.

Exactly. Is the only one of the three that has been in the same division as the Saints for their entire existence. Honestly, I still feel more about the 49ers and Rams as rivals than the Panthers and Bucs. It is hard for those old days to fade away.

I miss those Rams and 49ers games twice a year.

My two favorite teams are the Saints and anybody playing the Falcons.

True. See my handle.

Of course the Saints can solve the dilemma simply by going 6-0 in the division every year.

Re: Who is the New Orleans Saints Biggest NFC South Rival?

Atlanta is our biggest rival! Since we went through the division realignment years ago it has been them.

I despise the city of Atlanta and it's fans that live there or pledge their allegiance to that franchise and that disgusting city. Oh yes, I hate Carolina too!

Edit: Rise up? They paid for that slogan.
