NFL RUSH
Wildcard Preview: Saints & Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles host the New Orleans Saints in Saturday's NFC Wildcard game. It should be a great one.

 

The Eagles have seen their fortunes turn around one year after a 4-12 season.  A new head coach and a new starting QB have created a newfound wave of confidence in the city of brotherly love. 

 

The Eagles are 8-2 since Nick Foles took over as their starting QB.  During that stretch he's posted the NFL’s best passer rating thanks to his mastery of coach Chip Kelly’s offense.  RB LeSean McCoy has blossomed as well, winning the regular season NFL rushing crown with 1,607 yards on the ground.

 

With QB Drew Brees and his favorite weapon TE Jimmy Graham, the Saints are not your average wildcard team. Brees threw for 5,162 yards and 39 TDs this season, with 16 of those TDs going to Graham.

 
Be sure to watch this playoff battle Saturday at 8:10pm ET on NBC.
