Falcons’ Arthur Smith mouthed off to Saints’ Dennis Allen after being routed

The stakes were similar for the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints in Week 18.

However, Dennis Allen and the Saints came up big with a 48-17 victory over the Falcons.

The Saints scored the final 31 points. Instead of being upset with his Falcons, head coach Arthur Smith had a problem with Allen and mouthed off when the coaches went to shake hands.

Smith was set off by the Saints’ final touchdown with 1:10 left in the game.

Give Smith credit for consistency during his tenure in Atlanta. All three seasons have seen the Falcons finish 7-10.

Not sure a 21-30 mark is anything that will promote job security heading into the offseason.
