A Philadelphia Eagles fan wears a bag on his head during the second half an NFL football game against the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans, Monday, Nov. 5, 2012. The Saints won 28-13.

In handwriting parlance, the New Orleans Saints are an ascender, the Philadelphia Eagles a descender. With a 28-13 victory Monday night, the Saints, who started the season 0-4, have now won three of their last four games.
