ATLANTA - The New Orleans Saints players say their bus was pelted with eggs by airport workers after they touched down in Atlanta.

Tight end Jimmy Graham, linebacker Will Herring and quarterback Chase Daniel tweeted about the incident Wednesday night at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The Saints (5-6) face the first-place Falcons (10-1) Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. New Orleans won the first meeting between the longtime rivals, 31-27 on Nov. 11.

Graham wrote on Twitter: "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy!"

Daniel tweeted, "Wow ... we start getting eggs thrown (at) us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!"

The airport confirmed the incident happened, only saying airline workers were in the ramp area where the egging occurred. They said they were investigating and beefing up security for the team's departure.

Herring seems amused by the incident.

"First time my bus has been egged by opposing fans!" he tweeted. The game "should be fun!!"
