A golf wager between coach Doug Pederson and New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton will result in the Eagles wearing their home jerseys on their November trip to the Superdome. .
As they started playing together, Pederson said, “those competitive juices start flowing” and they came up with a few unique bets.
The first was the jersey wager to determine which team would wear their traditional home colors during the Week 11 game in New Orleans. It ended after an intense three-hole carryover.

“There’s a good chance it involved me being in the water,” recalled Payton, who also lost a bet that required him to send a sampling of New Orleans food to the Eagles’ coaching staff.
“Hey, if I’d have kept playing, he’d have been in our locker room,” cracked Payton, who revealed the wager while on a conference call with Pederson and Arizona State coach Herm Edwards in advance of their appearance in the American Century Championship celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe later this month.
This is much ado about nothing. The NFL offseason seems pretty tame compared to all the free agent craziness happening right now in the NBA. Anything for a headline.
