Full Version: No. 6 New Orleans Saints (11-5) at No. 3 Philadelphia Eagles (10-6)
Eagles Forum > Philadelphia Eagles Message Board > Philadelphia Eagles or Football Related Discussion
The Saints will hit the road, traveling to Philadelphia as the six seed. All things considered, that may not be a terrible position, assuming the Saints find some way to shake their road woes — they lost five of their last six outside the Big Easy.

Still, when this Drew Brees-led offense is on, it’s almost impossible to stop. The Saints proved that again Sunday with a playoff-clinching 42-17 romp over the Buccaneers, in which Brees threw for 381 yards and four touchdowns. The offense is as healthy as it’s been all season too, with Jimmy Graham, Darren Sproles and others back from injuries in recent weeks.

How well a revived New Orleans defense can hold its own against LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles may be the difference-maker here. The Eagles entered Sunday with the league’s second-most prolific offense in terms of points scored. They’ve also won four straight at home, outscoring their opponents by an average count of 34-17 in those games.

The early line shows the @Eagles -2.5 vs the Saints. I am hoping that we dial back the blitzes this week-end and Davis figures out another way for us to get pressure on the QB. If we rely on the blitz to get to their QB it will be a loooooong day.

If it snows, I like our chances.
Forecast isn't for snow but it is for a temp of about 25 degrees!
