Adam Sandler's Happy Madison production company teamed up with LeBron James and Maverick Carter of The Springhill Company to produce 'Hustle.'

Eagles running back Miles Sanders had a career day in Sunday's win over the Giants, rushing for 144 yards and 2 touchdowns. The play that people were talking about after the game, however, was one in which Sanders was blocking for quarterback Jalen Hurts.

Sanders imitated Adam Sandler's hard-hitting character Bobby Boucher from "The Waterboy" on that play with his frantic scream to boot as he blocked Giants linebacker Azees Ojulari: 

"I had a plan to yell like 'The Waterboy' because I was mic'd up today," Sanders said to reporters after the game.

Sandler, fresh off his Philadelphia-set Netflix film "Hustle" from earlier this year, chimed in on Twitter and shouted out Sanders:

Even as a New Yorker, Sandler clearly can't get enough of Philly. 

NOTE: The story originally referenced Jalen Hurts imitating Sandler. It was Miles Sanders.
