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