The Saints and Rams have a huge game this Sunday.
The New Orleans Saints and the Los Angeles Rams will be battling for a spot in the Super Bowl when they play each other in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Both teams played each other in an offensive showdown back in November, with the Saints coming out with a 45-35 win. The game-winning touchdown was scored by Michael Thomas who beat Rams cornerback Marcus Peters down the field.
After that game, Saints head coach Sean Payton talked about the play saying "They were going to travel Marcus to [Thomas], and that was fine by us. We thought we liked that matchup -- a lot."
Those comments prompted Peters to go on an epic rant where he said: "Tell Sean Payton to keep talking that s---. We're going to see him soon, you feel me? Because I like what he was saying on the sidelines, too. So tell him to keep talking that s---, and I hope you see me soon. We're going to have a nice little bowl of gumbo together."
Ahead of Sunday's matchup, Peters wanted to make it clear that there are no hard feelings between him and Payton.
"I see y'all trying to make it something that it's not, man," Peters said according to ESPN. "Just all respect to Sean Payton and what he does. During the game, things was happening. But I just love the fact that he's a competitor. When I was coming out of the draft, it was the same way -- fiery, energy -- when I was meeting with him and things like that. It wasn't nothing to be disrespectful. Shoot, I was pissed off. I didn't have the game that I wanted to have."
Payton echoed the same sentiments, joking that he's not a big fan of gumbo anyway.
"Next question," Payton said. "I don't like seafood. I know where you're going."
The game will be played in New Orleans at 3:05 P.M. EST on Fox.
