LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The saints will be taking on the Eagles today at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Its the final game of the NFL Divisional schedule and the Saints first playoff game of the season. New Orleans has skated into the playoffs with a 13-3 overall record and are certainly the favorites to win today’s game.
The Eagles defeated the Bears 16-15 last week to earn their spot facing the No. 1-seeded saints and will be pulling out all the stops for a major upset. Though they will be hoping today’s game won’t be a repeat of their match-up earlier this season where the Saints blew them out of the water 48-7.
The two teams' strengths match up quite well giving both the opportunity to shine today. With New Orleans passing game being based around timing and precision they’ll need to watch out for the Eagles who were able to greatly slow down the Chicago Bears passing game last week. But with Drew Brees' remarkably accurate throwing arm that may be easier said than done.
Kickoff today will be at 3:40 p.m.
We have a list of how to catch the game below.
