The New England Patriots notched a win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday evening, 17-10. They're winning the postgame, too.

Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore took a shot at Eagles tight end Zach Ertz while speaking to reporters following the win.

The All-Pro defensive back referenced Ertz crying after a game earlier in the season.

"Stephon Gilmore said he knew he could get Zach Ertz a little rattled because he had seen the Eagles tight end crying on film," Doug Kyed tweeted.

Ertz cried following the Eagles' loss to the Falcons on Sunday Night Football earlier in the season.

You have to respect the pettiness by Gilmore to bring up something that happened more than two months ago.

There's nothing wrong with a little crying, though.
