Roddy White felt Short against Saints Roddy White and the Atlanta Falcons felt short in its attempt to remain undefeated, but the receiver did not give much credence to his rivals Saints after New Orleans beat them by a dramatic 31-27.

"Not that they go out and win the game," said White, who had a performance of seven catches for 114 yards.

"I think we gave them the game," said White, who made headlines last week when he said he thought the Falcons were "good enough" to finish the bet NFL season 16-0. "We will play against them in three weeks and we'll be ready."

White's comments were not the only material for the rematch Nov. 29 in Atlanta.

Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton, who left the Falcons at the end of last season in free agency, dismissed the idea that New Orleans and Atlanta have a "rivalry" genuine because the Saints have won 11 of the last 13 meetings.

"The team that was on the field today was the reason I came to the Saints," said Lofton, who joined New Orleans just to see his former team have its best start in franchise history. "We are finally getting in shape".

Saints linebacker Scott Shanle said that the fact that mocked Lofton Falcons before the game helped turn the Saints.

"They were swearing at our boy, Curtis Lofton," he told the website. "I could not even understand. Were walking everywhere in our exercises trying to mess with him. [Jonathan] Vilma went and told his coach that was kind and they have not even said anything. That set the tone for the days. was something classless and got what they deserved. "

While the Saints (4-5) were celebrating their fourth win in five games after a 0-4 start, the Falcons (8-1) left the Superdome frustrated by not being able to get the yard they needed to take the lead in the last two minutes.

"It's very frustrating," said head coach of the Falcons, Mike Smith, who has a 2-7 mark against the Saints and 49-15 against the rest of the NFL in its four seasons as coach of Atlanta.

"We were close. This is something that we will learn."

Shanle, however, said that Sunday's result was further evidence of the dominance of the Saints over the Falcons.

"They are like our little brothers. Basically they know you can not mess with us, even when we are having a bad year," he told the website.
