Ahead of another divisional game this weekend against Washington, Giants running back Saquon Barkley had something to say about Eagles fans when asked about the intensity of NFC East games.
"From the fans, I would say a little bit more, especially when you go to a place like Philadelphia. It's crazy how you walk out and see little kids cursing you out, it's crazy." Barkley told the media. "(They) weren't directly cursing me out, but you just see them when you run out there. They were probably nine, I don't know the age, but I've heard stories about Philly fans and growing up in the Lehigh Valley area, you know how serious the Philly fans are."
No one likes us, we don't care.

As a kid who grew up in the area, went to school at Penn State and is the key piece on one of every 10 fantasy football teams, Barkley has a lot of fans when he shows up to the area, however, once you line up against the Eagles, it's a different story.
We've heard these kinds of stories before, in fact, Barkley also added that an Eagles fan tried to take his father's Giants hat off, so this is not a surprise coming from an opposing player who played (half) a game in Philadelphia two weeks ago.
With a big game in Dallas this weekend, Eagles fans are hoping they'll be able to be a factor in the playoff race one more time when the Texans roll into town for Week 16.
