PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A lot is riding on Sunday's game when the Eagles visit the Saints in New Orleans.

Morris Animal Refuge on Lombard Street challenged New Orleans-based animal shelter, the Louisiana SPCA, to a friendly wager: If the underdog Eagles win, Louisiana SPCA has to name three adoptable pets after Eagles players. If the Saints win, Morris must name its three pets after the Saints.

What names will be picked? Foles? Brees?

The odds may be ruff, but the outcome is sure to be pawsitive either way as long as all the pups find their fur-ever homes in the end.
