Rams Safety John Johnson III Trolled Saints to Get Back at Them for Eagles Trolling

If Eagles fans needed any more reasons to root for the Rams in Super Bowl LIII, aside from wanting to root against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, here's another one. 

Remember in the NFC Championship Game, when John Johnson III intercepted Drew Brees in overtime and he did the "Choppa Style" dance?

The "Choppa Style" had sort of become a theme of the Saints' 2018 season and Johnson III mocked it at the Superdome in overtime. 

Well, that was apparently in response to the Saints' trolling the Eagles after the divisional round game in New Orleans just the week before. 

While I don't think the Saints necessarily made fun of the dog masks from last year, there was a custody battle for those black ski masks, with both the Eagles and the Saints claiming them. And after their win over the Eagles, the Saints celebrated in their locker room to "Dreams and Nightmares," which was the Eagles' theme song in 2017. 

That disrespect apparently didn't sit well with Johnson III, who went to Boston College but is from the DMV. That's likely where his ties to Eagles players start.
