On Sunday (Jan. 13), the New Orleans Saints continued to march towards the Super Bowl by knocking off the defending champs in a closely contested victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. And despite a 13-win season, many felt that Philly could bring the Saint's season to a close. As a result, after topping the Eagles by a score of 20-14, New Orleans players took this victory as the perfect opportunity to troll Philly and their fan base.
The well-executed irritation began with the Saints celebrating their win by rapping the track that became Philly's battle cry during last seasons' Super Bowl run, Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)."
But instead of living in the past, the Saints brought their boasting full circle. Like Meek's intro, last season the Eagles embraced their underdog status by incorporating a dog mask into their sideline routines. However, this year Philly elected to replace the dog with a ski mask adopting the phrase "Robbing Season" as their motto. Yet after Sunday's loss, this gimmick became fuel for Saints running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram who did their entire post game interview through the holes of a ski mask.
Outside of the trolls, Saints are looking to continue their trip to Atlanta with a victory over the Los Angeles Rams who they will be facing in the NFC championship game on Sunday (Jan. 20).
