The Saints (5-6) face the first-place Falcons (10-1) Thursday night at the Georgia Dome. New Orleans won the first meeting between the longtime rivals, 31-27 on Nov. 11.
Graham wrote on Twitter: "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers. Classy!"
Daniel tweeted, "Wow ... we start getting eggs thrown (at) us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!"
Herring seems amused by the incident.
"First time my bus has been egged by opposing fans!" he tweeted. The game "should be fun!!"
