Saints vs. Eagles analysis: Playoff rematch won’t be rerun of November blowout; here’s why

January 8, 2019

The Philadelphia Eagles are headed to town again, but don’t be fooled -- this is a much different team than the one the Saints blew out in November.

The Saints come into the divisional round playoff game off a week of rest by virtue of earning the NFC’s top seed and a first-round bye.

Philadelphia heads to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after a stunning upset of the Chicago Bears, aided by a missed field goal by Chicago kicker Cody Parkey.
