11 Reasons The Playoffs Are All About New Orleans

GEAUX NEW ORLEANS! There isn't a better place in the world for a football party. Just make sure your stomach is prepared with a New Orleans-themed game day snack from Pillsbury.

1. New Orleans fans are some of the most passionate in the league. The city is lucky to have such a special relationship with their team. They're also the voodoo capital of the world. Coincidence? Yeah, probably...

2. Frankly, the city is stunningly beautiful. It's like watching football in heaven.

3. If you want to watch football AND enjoy the weather, this is your town. It's legal to enjoy an alcoholic beverage outdoors. Just make sure you watch the game from a window outside the bar responsibly.

4. They're responsible for basically inventing and popularizing poker. Good luck guessing the play calls, other teams.

5. They also invented jazz music, so you know the fans are cool.

6. New Orleans knows how to heighten the drama of a football game. That's probably why they were the first city in the U.S. to build a theater.

7. Tailgating just smells better in Louisiana.

8. The Superdome is one of the largest enclosed arenas in the world... even bigger than your mom.

Scientifically speaking, the Superdome is bigger than your mom. Still, you just got burned.

9. They can adapt to any style of football because New Orleans already does your city better than your city does your city. Fun Fact: Maryland is known for crabs, but did you know that pretty much all of them come from New Orleans?

10. Even if they don't win it all, they can take a loss better than anyone else. New Orleans is all about celebrating the good times, not mourning the bad.
