Saints fans across Baton Rouge join in the Boycott Bowl

As other football fans slogged their way through the lowest-scoring Super Bowl in NFL history, Saints fans flooded the streets of New Orleans Sunday in celebration of their team, in defiance of the NFL and in an attempt to heal. So it's no surprise that NOLA had a few things to say about the lowest-scoring Super Bowl ever.

The New England Patriots made their ninth Super Bowl appearance in 17 years on Sunday, and it seems that viewers are starting to tire of the dynasty that Belichick and Brady built.

The 44.9 for SBLIII marks a 5 percent drop in viewership over last year's Patriots-Philadelphia Eagles game (47.4 rating), and a almost 10 percent drop over Super Bowl XLIX, when the Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks in a thriller (49.7 rating).

Ratings for the Super Bowl fell to a decade-low, including a five percent drop from the previous year.

A seasonal model will continue, with each themed season bringing new content in the form of weapons, Legends , skins and more. Respawn CEO Vince Zampella took to Twitter to show his appreciation to the game's players.

As of Monday morning, the Super Bowl has an average rating of 44.9/68 in metered market results.

New Orleans was forced to settle for a field goal on fourth down, giving the Saints a 23-20 lead and giving Los Angeles time to come right back down the field and tie the game with a field goal of its own to force overtime.

New Orleans Saints fans (well, most of them, anyway) had no interest in watching Super Bowl LIII.

Instead, fans organized efforts to avoid the game entirely, with parades and protests and just a general good time.
