The Saints wont the game 23-13, a big step toward clinching the NFC South title the following week.
The additional revelations come a day after a New York Times article detailed Falcons owner Arthur Blank's displeasure about the Patriots' Super Bowl rings. The report said Blank was "pissed off" about one of the ring's features: exactly 283 diamonds ... get it?
There's no doubt the Atlanta Falcons have been on the brunt end of an endless amount of trolling since blowing a 28-3 lead against the New Eng…
