The entire Eagles team flocked to the field to support Sweat, and members of the Saints also gave him encouragement just before he was driven off.

Before entering the tunnel, Sweat raised an arm to signal the crowd, who chanted his name.

The 25-year-old Sweat is having a career 11-sack season. He had recorded at least one sack in each of the Eagles’ previous five games.
