Saints continue to troll Falcons for Super Bowl LI loss to Patriots

Saints continue to troll Falcons for Super Bowl LI loss to Patriots

If you thought the New Orleans Saints' poor play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday would stop them from bringing up Super Bowl LI, you don't know the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints lost 26-9 at home to their bitter NFC South rival Sunday and trailed for most of the game.

And yet... Check out what the Saints played on the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Jumbotron midway through the fourth quarter while trailing 23-9, via The Athletic's Nick Underhill:

In case you forgot: The Falcons blew a 28-3 lead to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LI. And the Saints would like to remind you. Again.

According to NOLA.com, the Saints rolled the Super Bowl LI highlights as part of a "record-setting Super Bowl performances" video, highlighting Atlanta's collapse against New England as "the biggest lead blow in Super Bowl history" before showing Drew Brees' record 32 completions in New Orleans' Super Bowl XLIV win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Outsiders may wonder why the Saints are jabbing the Falcons while losing to a 1-7 team at home, but as Underhill points out, schadenfreude is standard practice in this rivalry.

That means Patriots fans can expect to enjoy Super Bowl LI highlights whenever the Falcons come to New Orleans.

That time Mohamed Sanu blamed Lady Gaga for Super Bowl loss to Patriots

That time Mohamed Sanu blamed Lady Gaga for Super Bowl loss to Patriots

28-3.

Ask any New England sports fan what that score means, and they won't take long to answer. It's even been immortalized on t-shirts.

But while New England's historic Super Bowl LI comeback against Atlanta will be a treasured memory for most players in the Patriots locker room, it's quite a different story for Mohamed Sanu.

Sanu had two catches for 25 yards in that game and saw his team fritter away a 25-point second-half lead while Tom Brady and the Patriots engineered the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history. And one thing he blamed for what went down in the second half? Lady Gaga's halftime show.

“Usually, halftime is only like 15 minutes, and when you’re not on the field for like an hour, it’s just like going to work out, like a great workout, and you go sit on the couch for an hour and then try to start working out again,” Sanu told NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" several weeks after Super Bowl LI. "It's really the energy [you can't duplicate]. I don't know if you can simulate something like that. That was my first time experiencing something like that."

Even though Dan Quinn might not have simulated that, Bill Belichick has plenty of experience with Super Bowl halftime shows — and he did build long breaks into pre-Super Bowl practices to help the Patriots prepare.

Maybe this time around, Sanu can experience a very different kind of Super Bowl memory playing for — instead of against — the Patriots.

Patriots' Julian Edelman fires up Revolution with video, evokes Super Bowl memories from Atlanta

Patriots' Julian Edelman fires up Revolution with video, evokes Super Bowl memories from Atlanta

The New England Revolution are in Atlanta for their first MLS playoff match since 2015 today.

To help give the Robert Kraft-owned MLS team a boost, New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman recorded a video where he voices his support to the Pats' "brother team" as he called the Revs.

The Patriots won their sixth Super Bowl title in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium, site of today's playoff match. It's where the Pats beat the Los Angeles Rams in SB53 in February.

Here's Edelman's video:

Edelman also knows something about performing under pressure against Atlanta. His miracle catch was a signature piece of the Patriots comeback from a 28-3 deficit in Super Bowl 51 against the Atlanta Falcons.
