It seems like the stars have realigned in New Orleans.  Sean Payton is back, the suspensions are all lifted and the Saints finished the preseason at 3-1.  All good things Saints fans are thinking as we head into the kickoff of the 2013 Saints season and today they will face off against a division opponent.

The Atlanta Falcons come into New Orleans today to take on the Saints.  Not only is this a huge rivalry but an important game for the Saints to win for a couple reasons.

First, it's the first game of the year which they would like to get off to a good start and two, they would like to also win the divisional game too.

The Saints and Falcons lock up at Noon today and the game will be televised on FOX.
