Despite losing to the Atlanta Falcons Thursday night by a 20-17 final score, the New Orleans Saints still lead the NFC South by a half-game over the Carolina Panthers and a game over Atlanta.
That didn’t keep Falcons running back Devonta Freeman from getting in the last word, as he took to Twitter to celebrate the win by bringing back a Saints nickname from the past.

The fun thing about this: The two teams will meet again on Christmas Eve in New Orleans. Good chance Freeman’s postgame statement winds up on a bulletin board.
