Move over, dog masks, there’s a new face accessory in town.
It looks like the Eagles have picked up a new schtick, carrying around a ski mask to pass amongst the defense when they pull off a turnover. They’ll hand it off to the next player who picks up a turnover and so on, symbolizing “stealing the game” from the opponents.
Rodney McLeod was spotted hyping the defensive huddle up ahead of the game in Los Angeles, encouraging them to steal the game.
Hey, we’re all in for robbery, if it means Eagles wins.
Looks like Jalen Mills is also all in on the new trend.

The new tradition started last weekend in Dallas, which obviously didn’t fall in the Eagles favor, but the image of Malcolm Jenkins in a ski mask on the sidelines is still pretty amazing.

So, the Eagles are split 1-1 on games that they bring the ski mask to, that we know of, so we’ll have to see about the matchup next week against the Texans. We look forward to more robberies because if it works, it works.
