Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins doesn't hide what an emotional and nostalgic week this is for him.

Jenkins is trying to win his third career Super Bowl and second with New Orleans. But this weekend takes Jenkins back to Philadelphia. That's where he also won a championship with the Eagles and spent the previous six seasons.
