The Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints face each other in the NFC Division play-offs in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday. The Philadelphia Eagles have won each of their last three street games. Nick Foles completed 72.3 percent of his passes for 1,413 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. Foles has a total of six touchdown passes in his last two games. Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery have teamed up for 2,006 receptions and 14 touchdowns, while Nelson Agholor has 64 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles base game averages 98.1 yards per contest, and Josh Adams leads with 511 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia allowed 21.8 points and 366.2 meters per game. Malcolm Jenkins leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 97 tackles, Fletcher Cox has 1
The Philadelphia Eagles have won six of their last seven games SU and seven of their last ten games as outsiders of all kinds. The New Orleans Saints have lost just once with their starters since the opening weekend and their last three home wins have averaged 19.3 points. The Philadelphia Eagles have completed six of their last 10 games if they have dropped at least three points. The New Orleans Saints have failed to complete four of their last five games if they have a favorite of at least three points. The New Orleans Saints have been my Super Bowl pick for a few months before their competitors make them favorites. The Saints have the ability to destroy teams, especially at home, and we all know how the meeting against the Eagles took place in mid-November between these two teams. On the other hand, the eagles just find ways to win when Foles plays quarterback. It's like UConn in March. You can not explain it, but it just happens. The Eagles have won 14 of the last 16 games played by Foles, which of course includes four playoff victories. At some point you stop going against these things and just accept it for what it is. No, I do not think the saints will lose this game, but I'm sure I will not leave so many points with a confident Eagles squad that kept proving us wrong in the postseason and won 70 percent of their last 10 Play as an outsider.
