The New York Giants take on NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend at Lincoln Financial Field and cornerback duo Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Prince Amukamara did their bit to stir up the tension prior to kick off.

The Giants pair joined well-known fan of the franchise Joe Ruback (known by many as 'Licence Player Guy') in letting Eagles fans exactly how many Super Bowl titles they have welcomed back to Philadelphia - a big fat zero.

Ruback, who attends every Giants game home or on the road, posted an image to his Twitter account showing both DRC and Amukamara throwing up the zero alongside himself produly wearing an Eagles jersey emblazoned with the 'name and number'; SUPERBOWLS, 0.

And according to the super fan he didn't have to tell the Giants pair what to do, explaining the zeroes "just kinda happened."

The Giants certainly have the bragging rights in this department as Ruback was only too happy to explain in his original post:

"Hanging with The Prince of NY and @drc_two1 tonight. You already know what they think of the jersey! #GIANTS #0 #4."

Causing a stir

As you might expect the photo has caused quite a stir over in Philadelphia ahead of the huge Week Six contest.

Ruback has been inundated with Tweets of the not so friendly variety from angered Eagles fans, whilst some of the Philadelphia stars themselves have even spoken about it today.

Running back LeSean McCoy attempted a comeback of sorts when speaking to the media Wednesday:

"Did Prince win a Super Bowl? I know DRC didn't. I guess it's just entertainment."

Receiver Jeremy Maclin meanwhile accused the Giants pair of living in the past.

Unintentional?

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is of course a former Eagle himself - having played for the franchise when the Giants tasted Super Bowl success in 2012. And in the aftermath of what has (somewhere probably) become to be known as photo-gate he has admitted to seeing an increase in texts from his former teammates.

He has since taken to Twitter in a bid to downplay the situation:

"I meant nothing by the photo, I was just doing what a fan asked me to do, truly didn't meant to disrespect at all."

Whether or not he or Amukamara meant to rile their opponents or not we have a feeling their stunt may just bring them a few choice words from the Eagles players and crowd come Sunday.
