Reporters at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum pointed out the tremendous showing of Philadelphia Eagles fans on Sunday afternoon, with most saying their representation among Rams fans being guestimated at about 50-50.
So when Brandon Graham scored on a 16-yard fumble return for a touchdown as time expired, the Eagles defense attempted to do a Lambeau Leap-style celebration because there were so many Eagles fans in the front row.
Naturally, the few Rams fans nearby were understandably not down with it. NBC Sports Philadelphia's camera's captured footage of one Rams fan attempting to push Eagles defensive end Chris Long down.
Long is then seen having heated words with said fan. You may remember Long from earlier in the game when he forced Jared Goff to fumble in a game-changing play. I'd say Long likely won this battle of words.
The Eagles beat the Rams by a final of 43-35. You can watch the encounter below.
Terrell Owens is never one to hold his tongue. Or in this case, his fingers.
Answering fans’ Twitter questions on Friday night, the former Eagles wide receiver and Hall of Fame finalist opened up about several topics.
Things started off relatively tame, as T.O. was asked about playing for Andy Reid and the coach’s inability to win the big game.
Things took a turn when Owens’ Philadelphia exit — and the person he felt was behind it, who went unnamed, (Donovan McNabb) — was brought up.
… And his feelings on Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett.
However, Owens’ former San Francisco 49ers head coach, Steve Mariucci, got it the worst. Or maybe he’s just the worst.
At least Owens made it clear that despite playing for five teams during his NFL career, he will always bleed green.
Dog mask mania has swept through Philadelphia ever since Lane Johnson and Chris Long donned the creepy masks following the Eagles' divisional round win over the Falcons. We know why the duo wore them but where in the world did they get the idea?
Well, thanks to Zach Ertz — and his article on The Players' Tribune — we now have the answer.
The Friday before the game, Long, Johnson, Ertz, Jason Kelce and Brent Celek were having dinner when Johnson just couldn't contain his excitement for the idea.
“You know how everyone keeps saying we’re underdogs?" Johnson said. "Even though we’re the No. 1 seed? Well … we were on Amazon last night, and we ordered these dog masks.
“Yeah, and when we win, because we’re gonna freaking win, we’re going to do everything in the masks. Media. Postgame. Everything. Dogs.”
And the rest is history. The dog masks have become a must-own for Eagles fans — if you managed to buy one before they sell out that is. The Linc will surely be filled with tens of thousands of rabid German shepherds. But will Long and Johnson get to gloat in the masks postgame again?
