If the Saints won Edwards would have had to send Wolf a King Cake, but if they lost Edwards' prize would be a box of cake Butterscotch Krimpets. Needless to say, the Saints defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 20-14.

After the win, Edwards tweeted, “I guess I’ll be finding out what a @Tastykake is after all, @GovernorTomWolf. Way to go @Saints. WHODAT!”

The Saints will face off with the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship game Sunday.
