Call me a sore loser; call me a homer; call me whatever you want, but the truth lies in this article.
This Atlanta Falcons vs New Orleans Saints game will be forgotten about in mid-January.
The Falcons lost to the Saints in an ugly game—and that's being generous. It was a 17-14 game where both offenses struggled.
Yes, both defenses stepped up and made plays, but both offenses were anemic to say the least.
The bottom line is that in the grand scheme of things, this game means nothing. If you don't believe me look, at this stat regarding the last four Super Bowl-winning teams.
