C.J. Gardner-Johnson may have walked out of Lincoln Financial Field last Saturday with a win on the field, but he came out to a loss in the parking lot.

The Philadelphia Eagles defensive back says his car was stolen after his team took home a victory over the New York Giants with a 38-7 score in the NFC divisional round.

The 25-year-old player posted a video of himself on social media in the moments when he realizes that he thinks his car is stolen, and says that he believes he already knew who did it.

"I know exactly who stole my s--t, bro," he said in the video. "Don't worry about it. We got y'all on camera."

Gardner-Johnson is set to be a free agent after this season as his contract expires, and after an impressive season with the team, his prospects look promising, according to the Bleacher Report.

He came to the Eagles at the start of the season after a trade from the New Orleans Saints, and has been crucial to the team's success this season with an impressive six interceptions, tying him for the most in the NFL. He also became the only Eagle since 1970 to record five consecutive games with interceptions.
