Falcons to host Sean Payton-less Saints in 2022 season opener

DKB220109036 no vs atl

The Falcons will host their most hated rivals to open the 2022 season, the New Orleans Saints.

It’ll mark the first time since before 2006 that the Falcons will face a Saints team led by someone other than Sean Payton. Obviously, the infamous suspension during the 2012 season kept Payton away from the game.

Still, this will be the start of a new era in the Falcons-Saints rivalry. Arthur Smith and Dennis Allen will now battle it out, and we won’t have to wait long.
