New Orleans Saints will wait for the visiting Atlanta Falcons as they try to sweep their regular season match-up for three consecutive years. The game starts at 1 p.m. Sunday at Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
Social media interactions between fanbases of rival franchises have been much quieter than usual this week. There likely isn’t too much trash talk when both teams have had subpar seasons and are among the worst in their league.
The Saints are sitting at 4-9, last among all teams in the NFC South, and almost bottom of the league with only three other groups having a worse record. Meanwhile, the Falcons are just one game ahead with a 5-8 record, but even that leaves them behind their division rivals at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are 6-7.
It’s no surprise fans don’t have much to say about current standings compared to how vocal they usually get during rivalry season.

NFL Week 15: Saints, Looking for a Sweep
New Orleans will be hoping to sweep the Atlanta Falcons series for the second time in three years when they take on their divisional rivals this weekend. Back in September, the Saints triumphed 27-26 in a dramatic season opener at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Despite falling behind by 16 points going into the fourth quarter, New Orleans staged an incredible comeback with two crucial touchdown drives, before Wil Lutz delivered the knockout punch with a 51-yard game-winning field goal. This week’s encounter promises to be just as exciting, with both teams vying hard for an important win.
A lot of things happen since the opening night, the Winston vs. Marcus Mariota match-up on week 1 is now Andy Dalton vs. Desmond Ridder, their season is also looking to be much more cloudy this time as both of them only have a slim chance to get into the playoffs.
