New Orleans Saints Troll Meek Mill And The Eagles After Playoff Victory
It was a hard fought game between the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in the NFC divisional round. The Eagles took an early 14-0 lead, but the Saints stormed back scoring 20 unanswered points and won the game 20-14. For the Eagles, it was a heartbreaking loss as receiver Alshon Jeffery dropped a pass late in the game that was then intercepted by the Saints. The play ended the game and propelled New Orleans to the NFC Championship game against the Los Angeles Rams.
One of the highlights of the Saints celebration was their trolling of the Eagles fan base, more specifically, Meek Mill who is a well-known Philadelphia sports supporter. In the locker room after the match, the Saints celebrated by blasting Meek's "Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)" which famously became the Eagles' rallying-cry when they went on their Super Bowl run last season.
The Saints didn't stop there though. Eagles players have been wearing ski masks on the sidelines and have used the phrase "Robbing Season" to describe their play and status as underdogs. As a play on this, Saints players Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram did their post game interviewers in ski masks.
Needless to say, the Saints don't care one bit about who they offend. They'll be heading into their NFC Championship game matchup as the number one seed in the NFC.
