Saints Survive With Last-Second Field Goal In Philadelphia

The New Orleans Saints had never won a road playoff game and were often marred by their road woes and the “cold curse.” Temperatures in Philadelphia were down in the twenties and Drew Brees was faltering, but the Saints left it in the hands, or on the foot, of their newest player in Shayne Graham.

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.

Which Team Is The Best Opponent for Seattle?

Seattle has already faced, and beaten, both the Saints and 49ers this season but not the Packers. Does the unknown help or hurt a team in the Playoffs?

Peyton Manning’s Passing Record In Question

Peyton Manning set a multitude of NFL records this season, but one may be taken away by the NFL. The league and their official statisticians are currently reviewing a play that could mean a loss of one record.

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.

Why Do The Saints Stink On The Road?

I will readily admit if the Saints team that beat the Panthers 2 weeks ago in New Orleans shows up Sunday, the Panthers are in trouble. The good news is that team never jumps on the team plane. That team stays home like Jim Celania on a weekend. The Saints team they send on the road is a different one entirely.

Panthers Will Be Facing An Angry Saints Team Yet Again

The Carolina Panthers still have a great chance at being the NFC South champions and making a run into the playoffs, but there is still work to do. Unfortunately, they’ll be getting an angry New Orleans Saints team yet again, but fortunately, it is a Saints team that is rather awful on the road.

Panthers Win Streak Crashes Down As Saints Dominate In New Orleans

It had to come to an end sooner or later, but the Carolina Panthers did not think that their eight-game win streak would come crashing down like it did on Sunday night. The New Orleans Saints rebounded big time from their bad loss last week and took it to the Panthers in the Superdome.

Panthers Have One RB Back, One Gone For Big Game With Saints

The Carolina Panthers will need to try and attack the rushing defense of the New Orleans Saints as Rob Ryan won’t let an opposing passing game thrash them again. With that, the Panthers will get one running back returning to the field while another will likely sit on the sidelines.
