Philadelphia Eagles Prepare To Face Drew Brees

Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.

Saints Need To Forget Road Woes As Philly Trip Looms

The New Orleans Saints have a revamped defense and an offense that appears to have even more weapons than that of their Super Bowl winning team. For some reason though, the Saints just can’t get things going on the road, but they will have to change that for a wild card visit to Philadelphia.

Eagles Prepare For Saints Wild Card Battle

Drew Brees will be much more successful against the Eagles defense than back-up Kyle Orton was in the final game of the regular season. But, if the Eagles can knock Brees off his game, then the Saints could quickly run out of options to try and keep up wit the Eagles offense.

Things are starting to get a little hotter in the NFL as the midway point of the season arrives. Drew Brees and the Saints are marching along as one of the best teams in the NFC. Calvin Johnson absolutely dominated the Dallas Cowboys while Dez Bryant blew up at his own teammates.
