NFL players and fans are no strangers to injury. As a result of this curse, many players have lost rhythm in their form and even careers, causing teams to suffer. The game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New Orleans Saints last night saw no exception.

Despite two straight losses, most recently against the Saints, the Eagles remain atop the NFC East with a 13-3 record. They couldn’t manage to grab a single point in the first, second, or fourth quarters, as the Saints thrashed them in their home stadium, Lincoln Financial Field. The water on the drowned mouse was Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat’s injury.
