Atlanta Falcons - New Orleans Saints (51 - 45 - 0)

The Falcons–Saints rivalry is a divisional rivalry in the NFC South and it is by far the oldest and most established rivalry in the division. Born one year apart, the Saints and Falcons were the first two NFL franchises in the Deep South. They have shared some important players as well as coaches from the same families. The series was rarely noted by the national media, however, the September 2006 match-up, which served as the Louisiana Superdome's official reopening after Hurricane Katrina, was heralded as a major milestone in New Orleans' and the Gulf Coast's recovery from the effects of the storm as well as the Saints' return to the city after their own year-long exile after the storm; the Saints later erected a statue outside the Superdome to commemorate their win in that game.
