Eagles vs Saints Preview
The Saints marched all over the Eagles when the teams met in Week 11. New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees connected on 22 of his 30 passing attempts for 363 yards, four touchdowns, and zero interceptions en route to a 48-7 victory.
“It was just one of those days when everything they did worked and nothing we did worked,” Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham recently told the team’s official website. “Now, we’re in a different spot. We had a defense then that was limited. We ran a lot of ‘Man’ and ‘Cover 2’ in coverage just because we had some new guys and not everybody was in sync with the scheme. I feel like now we’re exploring more of the scheme because we know it better and we’re more comfortable. We understand our defense more and we can play that way.
“Our confidence level is high. We’re playing some of our best ball at the right time. That’s important. That’s what this tournament is all about — playing your best football at this time, peaking when you need to peak.”
Saints head coach Sean Payton expects a much better performance out of Philadelphia’s secondary this time around. The Eagles surrendered 303 yards through the air against the Chicago Bears in the wild-card round, but Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky needed 43 attempts to get there.
“I think they’ve been real consistent,” Payton said of the Eagles’ defensive backfield, per the team’s website. “Number one, they’ve minimized the big plays and they have gone up against some pretty good offenses. There is this period of the season where you can see on film this consistent lineup. I think prior to that there had been a lot of moving parts and I think Jim (Schwartz) has done a good job of getting that group settled in and you can see the communication when they are in their dime package. Certainly, Malcolm (Jenkins) is inside in their nickel (package). There are several packages (where) you see three-safety look last week to Chicago. We have to prepare for all of it. But I think they’re playing a lot better.”
In the Week 11 tilt, Carson Wentz went 19-of-33 for 156 yards, no touchdowns, and three interceptions under center for Philadelphia. The Saints defense will get a different look against Nick Foles on Sunday.
“Obviously, he’s good at getting the ball out quick,” Saints defensive tackle Tyeler Davison said, according to the team’s website. “He’s a good game manager, he’s a good situational quarterback – you see him coming through on third downs, you see him coming through in clutch situations at the end of the game, at the end of the half. He’s a good, sound quarterback. That being said, we have to be a good, sound defense.”
