The Eagles are a tough task, as they’ve won seven out of the last eight games, including four straight at home. Since Nick Foles has entered, he’s been the main reason the Eagles have done as well as they have. There’s so many ways this matchup has been dissected already, but simply put, it will come down to the team who will want it more, and shows it on the field.
This is it. All of the chips are on the table. The Saints path is set in stone, as they could have a destined date to Seattle after tonight, or leave the cold depths of Philadelphia on a plane headed back to New Orleans wondering what could have been. I’ve stated in a previous article that this is how it should be. The Saints path to the Super Bowl starts and ends on the road.
Aside the rituals (Popeye’s, Gatorade, etc.), the Saints are ready for this game. They should show it today, and get a huge monkey off of their back.
Final Prediction: Saints 24, Eagles 20
