Amongst the outrage from fans over the Saint’s heartbreaking defeat by the Los Angeles Rams, two NFC South rival teams are celebrating.

The Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons jointly tweeted their excitement over the loss with a “really really really” long post.

The Panthers began with a tweet by saying they were “really really…..happy the Rams won.”

The Falcons responded to that tweet adding several more reallys to the Panther’s post.

Fans of the Falcons, Panthers and Saints are known to pick at each other, making claims that their teams are the better of the NFC South. The Saints’ loss in Sunday night’s championship adds more fodder for the rival teams and their fans.

Neither Carolina or Atlanta made the playoffs this year both finishing with a 7-9 record.

Saints fans and supporters have pointed to a missed call during the fourth quarter as ground-zero for the Saints loss. The call would have been for pass interference on Nickell Robey-Coleman who slammed into the Saints’ TommyLee Lewis before he could make the catch.

The call, many claim, ended the Saints’ chance at wrapping up the game nicely during the fourth quarter and heading on to their second appearance in a SuperBowl.

Fans across Louisiana took to social media to express their outrage at the missed call and what could be done to rectify the loss.
