The Eagles welcomed the New Orleans Saints to Philadelphia on a frigid night for a Wild Card matchup with Drew Brees and the Saints. After struggling offensively early, the Eagles surged late, taking a 24-23 lead with less than five minutes remaining. A trip to Seattle next Saturday would be ripped from the Eagles' grasp however, as the Saints hit a 32-yard field goal as time expired to escape Philadelphia with a 26-24 win, their first ever postseason road win.
Preview: Eagles v. Saints
It's a battle of the offensive juggernauts, as the Philadelphia Eagles welcome the New Orleans Saints to Lincoln Financial Field Saturday night. Veteran signal caller Drew Brees will lead the 11-5 Saints into a blustery and rowdy Linc, as he squares off with the Eagles' Nick Foles, who is in the midst of a breakout season in his second year in the league.
