Fighting for a spot in the NFC Championship, the Saints are facing off against the defending champs, the Eagles.

Thousands of Saints fans are packed inside the Mercedes Benz Superdome watching what is sure to be an incredible game.

Before the game, Who Dat Nation’s anthem, Choppa Style was hyping fans as they packed Champion Square.

Belva Chapman from Youngsville said, “We gonna win this game. Who dat? Who dat say they gonna beat them Saints? Nobody!”

Brian Wiltz from Lafayette said, “We were here for the first game with the Eagles and there were way more Eagles fans here. I’m so proud the Saints fans didn’t sell their tickets today. They showed up and are out here in masses.”

The few Eagles fans we caught up with didn’t outright say they think they’ll win, they say they’re just enjoying the Big Easy.

“Just love New Orleans and all of the fun. If they were playing any other place than New Orleans, we were not going,” said Eagles fan Susie Shaddy.

Saints fans though are confident they’ll win big.”I think we’ll win by 17,” Chapman said. “We’re going to beat the Eagles and go all the way baby! Atlanta, we coming for you baby! We coming!”
