The New Orleans Saints once again got their Popeyes, this time at the airport before playing Seahawks

After one Popeyes-related playoff victory, the New Orleans Saints got ready to take on the Seahawks with more fried chicken. This time, the chain sent the team their fix -- in an armored truck.

As enormous fans of Popeyes, we've been covering the Saints' ongoing fried chicken-fueled playoff run. After eating Popeyes on the road during the 2009 season, when they won the Super Bowl -- and consequently losing three road playoff games in which they were not given Popeyes -- the Saints have Louisiana's premier fast foodstuff on their side again. This is last week in the locker room in Philly:

And this time around, they got the stuff delivered straight to the airport. From Thursday:

Sean Payton tweeted too:

TMZ -- yes, we're sorry, but, TMZ -- provides the details:

Now, the President of Popeyes Chicken tells TMZ Sports ... the company is putting the entire weight of the Louisiana-based organization behind the Saints and have provided them with 375 pieces of chicken to hold the guys over during the flight from N.O. to Seattle. "As a direct result [of Popeyes chicken], they won their first playoff road game," the President tells us ... adding, "They have a 100% win rate in the playoffs when they eat Popeyes." We're told the guys will be getting 125 three-piece meals (90 spicy meals, 35 mild) which include mashed potatoes and cajun gravy, red beans and rice, and biscuits.

They sent it in an ARMORED TRUCK:

First of all, what are they thinking sending ANY mild meals? Mild doesn't win championships.

However, we'll stand by the exact same thing we wrote last week.

I'm not a betting man -- just a man who is passionate about his fried chicken, and thinks Popeyes is so much better than KFC that I'm not sure how KFC manages to remain in business. But if I was a betting man, I'd put some money on the Saints, because Popeyes = victory. Always.

It worked once!
