After a 17-16 win over the Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach Nick Sirianni ripped off his visor and yelled into the crowd.

As he addressed the team, the coach wiped tears from his eyes, signaling a very important win for the team and for himself.

During the postgame conference, Sirianni said: “I'm emotional because I love Frank Reich. I really do.

“He's one of the best damn football coaches I've ever been around. I was hoping that he and I would be able to coach against each other this game. He is one of my biggest mentors.

“You don't want to know what I think of if he should be here or not, but you guys can probably imagine what I really think. ... It was sweet to come here, especially with what happened with this organization the last couple of weeks, and get the win. The win. We're leaving Indianapolis with a win!”

Reich was fired by the Colts after a 3-5-1 start to the season and was replaced by Jeff Saturday, which was an odd hiring to be sure.

Sirianni was an assistant coach for the Chargers back in 2013 while Reich was on the staff as a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator.

Eagles wide receiver Zach Pascal added: “I think this W was probably for Frank. It was a sad day to see him get fired. ... It was a sad day for me. But I'm glad we came out with that dub today.”

The Eagles moved to 9-1 on the season and are at the top of the NFC after their win over the Colts.
