The NFL brings more excitement this weekend as the Philadelphia Eagles will clash with the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedez-Benz Superdome on Sunday afternoon.
Philadelphia Eagles Form
The Eagles are heading into this game after a surprising win against the Chicago Bears. Moreover, they have played well in this game and now they have the momentum on their side.
Also, they had the solid Nick Foles as he threw 266 yards, combined with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions as well.
Against Chicago, the Eagles let only 356 yards of total offence while logging a pair of sacks in the win.
This is the fourth all-time game with New Orleans in the playoffs. Also, it is the first since the Saints celebrated a 26-24 win at Philadelphia in the wild-card round of the 2014 playoffs.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints are heading into this in a solid form. Moreover, they are the top seed in the NFC as their record stands at 13-3 overall. Also, they have been very solid this season as they had 10 wins in a row at the start of the season.
Drew Brees has thrown for 3,992 yards, 32 touchdowns and 5 interceptions.
On the offensive side of the game, Michael Thomas leads New Orleans with 125 catches for 1,405 yards and 9 receiving touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the game, Cameron Jordan is the main man as he leads this New Orleans team with 12 sacks while Demario Davis has a team-high 74 tackles along with 5 sacks.
However, their total average is 379.2 yards per game combined with 31.5 points per game.
The Eagles showed that they are a strong team. And their surprising wins against Chicago was the prime example of that. However, I think that they are lucky to be here as Chicago had chances to win the game.
Nevertheless, this New Orleans team has a much stronger offensive firepower. Therefore, I expect that the Saints win this game in a dominant way.
