In the NFL Playoffs Divisional round matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles, Saints Tight End Benjamin Watson, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, and numerous other players from both squads, knelt, linked arms and prayed together on the field.

Saints TE Watson and Eagles backup QB Foles are both outspoken Christians.

In a post on his Facebook page, Benjamin Watson said about his brothers from Philly, “I have a great amount of respect for our brothers in Philly. They have been steadfast in faith and their influence has gone far beyond the field. #MeetUsAtThe50

Watson also included Scripture in the post:

“I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
Psalms 16:8

The Saints would go on to win the Divisional round matchup between the Saints and the Eagles by a score of 20-14.

TE Watson had one reception for 12 yards on the game, while QB Nick Foles went 18/31 for 201 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, according to the New Orleans Saints website.
