New Orleans Saints defensive back Justin Hardee (34) and New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore (23) celebrate Lattimore's interception in the second half of an NFL divisional round playoff game, Sunday, January 13, 2019 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, La. The Saints defeated the Eagles 20-14 to advance to the NFC Championship.

Marshon Lattimore didn't mince words about what he thought of the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. 

"It's the loudest I've ever heard the dome," said Lattimore during a post-game press conference. 

He compared it to the other home playoff game he's been a part of, a wild card round matchup against the Carolina Panthers a year ago. He said the crowd was much louder against the Eagles. 

"We love it ... get that extra push," he said.

If the crowd was exceptionally loud, he can take credit for two its more full-throated moments of a 20-14 come-from-behind victory. Lattimore notched two interceptions in the game, one in the first half that helped swing momentum, and another late in the fourth quarter as the Eagles were driving for a potential go-ahead score. 

But Lattimore wasn't alone. Saints running backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram both agreed the crowd noise was on another level. 

"It was loud," Kamara said. "[Ingram] turned to me and said that it was the loudest he ever heard it. You hear it and you look up at the screen and the decibels were high."

Said Ingram: "It was huge. I saw the meter get to 128, 130. I have never seen it get that high. They brought it and we are going to need it all the way through the playoffs." 

The win means another chance for the New Orleans crowd to make its best impression on the second-year cornerback, as the Los Angeles Rams will be headed to New Orleans for a date in the NFC Championship on Jan. 20.
