Saints season opener earns Super Bowl-size ratings

Updated:

New Orleans, La. - No doubt the The Who Dat Nation was all in, desperate, in fact, to welcome coach Sean Payton back to the sidelines after his season-long bounty suspension.

Sunday's season opener featuring the Saints versus the Atlanta Falcons on Fox scored ratings that rival Super Bowl numbers.

The Nielsen Company says Sunday's game averaged a 75 share of the television audience in the New Orleans market. Nationally, last February's Super Bowl averaged a 71 share.
