Saints @ Eagles
The Saints can’t win outside the dome. The saints can’t win in the cold. So say the pundits. I don’t buy it. While the Saints were 3-5 on the road in 2013, the Eagles were just 4-4 at home. The Eagles offense is 2nd in the NFL, but the Saints are top 5 as well (4).
Where this game will be won, is on defense, and one little known fact is that the Saints have a good defense. The Saints are ranked 4th in YPG, 4th in PPG, 4th in sacks, 9th in sacks and 2nd in passing YPG. The Eagles defense is 29th overall and dead last against the pass.
Why the Saints Will Win: 32nd ranked pass defense against Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham.
