The Times-Picayune in New Orleans used the front page of Monday’s paper to highlight the Philadelphia Eagles’  Super Bowl win, but to once again troll the Atlanta Falcons on their Super Bowl collapse.

The front page featured cornerback Jalen Mills (who played at LSU) sitting on the U.S. Bank Stadium field in confetti with the headline, “Birds of Play. Unlike, you know, those Atlanta birds.”

The Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33, one year after the Falcons tragically lost to the Patriots in overtime in Houston.
