No. 6 New Orleans at No. 3 Philadelphia, 8 p.m. ET (NBC)
The Eagles defensive line has to step up a lot more than they did tonight to stand a chance.
Yeah, you give Brees the pocket Orton so often had and it's probably not going to go exactly the same.
Of all of the teams that made the postseason for the NFC, The Saints are the one that I would want to play first especially with them being on the road. Drew Brees is a great quarterback no matter what, but this is the best scenario for Philadelphia. Play like they have shown with the home crowd behind them and let the Saints play the way they have been all year on the road and we should walk away with the win.
Most of your losses were at home.
I don't see the Eagles winning this one.. sorry Eagles fans. Here's why:
the Saints are due a road win.. and switch to blue gator aid is going to be the difference on the road...
Eagles defense won't stop the Saints from scoring, period
Eagles offense can't keep up with the Saints
caveat - EAGLES should be able to run the ball.. if they can keep it close and run the ball well they stand a chance.. duh.. Im so smart.. also, the deep ball will help Eagles as Saints are lacking safety smarts with Vaccaro out.
old news. they are 4-0 at home since the giants game outscoring their opponents 136-68.
Redskins, Cards, Lions and Bears...color me impressed.
i really could give two craps if you're impressed. the eagles went 7-1 in the second half of the season and who they beat doesnt really mean rod right now.
vegas has the game pretty much as a pick-em which to me makes sense. the game could go either way.
Even if we didn't win the last four at home, you think it'd be better playing the Saints in their dome as opposed to in the Linc?
going to be interesting parking wise at the stadium where we tailgate thanks to disney on ice.
I Think the saints get beat by 10.Saints do not play worth crap away from home,add the crazy insane surroundings for opponents in philly,and bad weather,sounds like a disaster for the saints saturday night.
weather could hurt the Saints, but I expect the same challenge for Philly.. both offenses are dynamic and can put up points.. just the Saints have a BETTER defense and a more experienced staff and roster.
This game shouldn't be close.. Saints win by 10 or more easy.
the saints are a pass first offense and brees is brutal in cold outside games.
the eagles are a run first offense that is used to the climate and has proven the weather doesnt affect them whatsoever.
if the saints turn the ball over the eagles cruise. if they don't i think the saints might find a way to win the game but it will be close.
Hard to bet against Drew Brees ever, really. Clearly he is a better player in the dome, but it's impossible to look past how good he is. We'll have to come up with a hell of a gameplan to stop him.
no doubt. hopefully davis comes up with a plan to get pressure on brees and knock him around some.
Man this is gonna be a great game period.. and 41 degrees isn't that damn cold, Drew will we fine so long as the ball isn't wet.
AND IF the Saints would run Ingram down their throat he would prove to be a game changer... dude has been making some seriously good plays the last 4 or 5 weeks.
"Billy Davis" and "a plan" have never gone, and will never go, together.
41 ? the high for saturday is 29 during the day. gonna be in the teens come gametime.
that anit crap, have you ever been in 40 degree weather with 80 percent humidity, thats New Orleans.. they will be fine. Couple extra dropped balls but that won't stop the Saints man.. your Eagles are about to get shot down son!
