The NFC Championship game from last season between the New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams was one of the best matchups of the year, and the controversial ending cemented it as one of the most memorable NFC title games ever.
Luckily for us fans, we won't have to wait long at all to get the rematch. The Saints and Rams will battle it out again in Week 2 of the 2019 season.
The rematch will be in New Orleans again so the crowd will definitely be loud and rowdy. Both of these teams are looking to to get back into the playoffs this year so this early season matchup could go a long way in determining the seeding come playoff time.
The Rams will be defending their NFC title this season after reaching the Super Bowl last year. Their performance in the Super Bowl was pretty anemic.. They'll be trying to put that behind them and return to glory this season.

Do the right thing & put the New Orleans Saints & Los Angeles Rams back on the field with 1:49 left on the clock.
Otherwise, this Super Bowl is illegitimate & we will not be watching.@darrenrovell @Cantguardmike @Saints#nfl #BoycottSuperBowl pic.twitter.com/xklvFr2OM1
As for the Saints, the clock's ticking for Drew Brees, who will be 40 heading into this season. But Brees has the weapons around him and a great offensive-minded coach to help him get the most out of those weapons.
