Falcons, Saints fans out in full force

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

Falcons mania is sweeping the ATL, and the Dirty Birds as well as members of ‘Who ‘Dat?' nation are out in full force.  The NFC South rivalry is legendary in the south, and fans from both sides converged on the Georgia Dome early Thursday for some intense tailgating.  

In the shadow of the Georgia Dome, one self-professed prophet called for a Falcons victory.  "Holy Moses," as he is known, said the Falcons are "headed for the promised land"--  the Super Bowl.  Others told us for them, it's all about revenge after the Saints handed Atlanta their only loss of the season thus far.  

Many Saints fans said after a disappointing season so far, their goal is to keep hope alive—playoff hopes, that is.
