NEW ORLEANS (AP) — When the New Orleans Saints finally found their rhythm Brandon Brooks Jerseys Stitched , they marched one step closer to the Super Bowl. a few gambles that paid off, the Saints got two touchdown passes from Drew Brees and two interceptions from Marcus Lattimore in a 20-14 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.Brees took the Saints on scoring drives of 92, 79 and 67 yards after falling behind 14-0. Lattimore clinched it when Nick Foles‘ pass from the Saints 27 deflected off usually sure-handed receiver Alshon Jeffery with about two minutes remaining. A couple dozen Saints players surged off the sideline toward the end zone in celebration, while Jeffery fell face-first to the turf in agony.Article continues below ...“We were real calm and poised and we knew we were going to get things done,” Brees said.New Orleans (14-3) will host the NFC title game next week against the Rams (13-4). Los Angeles, which fell 45-35 at the Superdome in November, will try again next week, with the winner going to the Super Bowl. The Saints’ win finished off a sweep of the divisional round by teams coming off byes.Wil Lutz added two field goals for the Saints, who last got this far in 2009, when they won the Super Bowl.Philadelphia (10- will not repeat as NFL champion; no team has done so since the 2004 Patriots.“We were going down to win, but I just felt like we beat ourselves, honestly,” Jeffery said. “Hats off to those guys.”Eagles coach Doug Pederson thought his team was on its way on that final drive to pulling off another stunning comeback win“It just felt like the momentum at that point was in our favor,” he said. “It’s been that way all season, and we felt like that sort of magic was going to continue.”This was really two games in one. Philly scored on its first two drives as the Saints could do virtually nothing right.“Listen, they got off to a fast start, they’re a great team,” Brees said. “Nick Foles has done a phenomenal job for them. We knew it was going to be different than last time.”After that opening period, it was all New Orleans, yet the resilient Eagles kept it close enough that when Lutz missed a 52-yard field goal with 2:58 remaining, they were only one-score behind.Foles, the hero of last year’s Super Bowl run, got them in position for yet another late winning score — just like last week at Chicago and last February against New England for the championship.Then Youth Stefen Wisniewski Jerseys , Jeffery couldn’t handle a second-down pass, and it was over.“That’s a great championship team,” Saints coach Sean Payton said of the Eagles. “We remained confident.”Brees had 2-yard touchdown passes to rookie Keith Kirkwood and All-Pro wideout Michael Thomas, who had 12 receptions for a franchise playoff-record 171 yards.Thomas’ touchdown capped an 18-play, 92-yard drive in which the Saints actually covered more than 100 yards because of penalties. It lasted 11½ minutes.“What you saw from him today is what I see every day in practice,” Brees said of Thomas. “He’s a big-time player who wants to be the guy to make plays.”Philadelphia had the ball for more than nine minutes in the first quarter, after which the Eagles had the ball about 13 minutes and never scored.New Orleans, which routed Philadelphia 48-7 in November, gambled on its first play — and lost. Brees was a bit short on a deep pass to Ted Ginn Jr., and it was picked off by Cre’Von LeBlanc, one of several Eagles backups being used in the secondary due to injuries during the regular season.“I just think we had to find our rhythm,” Brees said. “I tried to take a shot on the first play. Unfortunately, that didn’t work.”After the first quarter, though, a lot worked for New Orleans.Foles completed all five throws on a 76-yard drive capped by Jordan Matthews‘ 37-yard TD catch . The Eagles, who quickly fell behind 17-0 in that previous Superdome loss, suddenly led 7-0.Not long after, a 75-yard drive highlighted by a 30-yard pass to Jeffery ended with Foles’ short leap over the goal line for a 14-0 edge.Indeed, the visitors were in control until Lattimore picked off Foles’ deep throw to Zach Ertz. The Saints showed plenty of moxie on their 79-yard march to a touchdown, faking a punt at their 30, with Taysom Hill running 4 yards for a first down. They also went on fourth-and-goal from the 2, and Philadelphia’s rapidly depleting defense surrendered Kirkwood’s 2-yard touchdown.“When you just get that in guys’ minds that we’re going to be aggressive, that we’re going to play to win Stefen Wisniewski Jerseys Stitched , it allows guys to relax and to cut loose,” Brees said.With Brees finding the range and his receivers finding loads of room to roam, New Orleans crept to 14-10 at halftime on Lutz’s 45-yard field goal.UGLY STARTMaybe the Saints were rusty after their wild-card bye, but they got two first downs, including one by penalty, gained 17 yards, and Brees threw an interception and had a fumble that was recovered by teammate Ryan Ramczyk in the opening period. Meanwhile, Philly gained 153 yards and scored two TDs, and Foles went 8 of 9 for 113.But Foles was intercepted by Lattimore early in the second quarter, and the Saints finally got going.NUMBERSBrees, who turns 40 Tuesday, finished 28 for 38 despite the awful start, throwing for 301 yards. Aside from Thomas, who was targeted 16 times — he led the NFL with 125 catches — no one caught more than four passes for New Orleans. Alvin Kamara had four for 35 yards and also rushed for 71 yards. Mark Ingram added 53 yards on the ground as the Saints outrushed the Eagles 137-49. New Orleans is 6-0 at home in the playoffs with Payton and Brees.Foles was 18 for 31 for 201 yards. Jeffery had five catches for a team-leading 63 yards before the game-sealing drop.INJURIESIn a span of three plays, two starters were hurt and needed to be carted off.First, Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins went down midway in the first quarter, unable to put any weight on his left foot.Two plays later, Eagles right guard Brandon Brooks hurt his right leg and departed.Several Saints players said they would be playing for Rankins the rest of the way because his season was done.Philly also lost DB Rasul Douglas in the second quarter to an ankle injury, but he was back in the second half. DLs Fletcher Cox, an All-Pro, and Michael Bennett also were sidelined at times before returning. In the fourth quarter, left tackle Jason Peters left.UP NEXTThe Saints host the Rams in the early game next Sunday, with the winner going to the Super Bowl. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...2018 PFF NFL All-Pro Team - PFFC – Jason Kelce Clayton Thorson Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys , Philadelphia Eagles. Kelce is still hands down the best center in the NFL and the fact that he didn’t even make the Pro Bowl is a joke. No center can execute more blocks and more consistently than the Eagles center. He also added a career-high 87.7 grade in pass protection this season for good measure. DI – Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams & Fletcher Cox, Philadelphia Eagles. Donald was doing things on the interior the likes of which the game has never seen this season. 106 pressures. 21 sacks. 20 hits. Four separate games with 10-plus pressures. The numbers are absurd. No one can touch Donald’s production, but Cox was in rarified company, as well. His 95 total pressures this season were the most we’ve ever seen from a defensive tackle not named Donald.Eagles vs. Bears: Thoughts on Philadelphia’s wild card opponent - BGNMetrics indicate the Bears’ offense is below average. Chicago ranks 20th in offensive DVOA and 20th in yards per play. Chicago’s 23.6 offensive points per game ranks 12th but they’ve had the seventh best average starting field position this season. They’ve also had a number of extra offensive possessions to work with since their defense takes the ball away so often.The Kist & Solak Show #62: Who Are the Eagles Now? - BGN RadioIt’s the usual Tuesday line-up of press conferences with tons of info.. first up is defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz talking about the challenges the Bears’ offense presents, followed by Mike Groh and how the offense has found their groove in the late part of the season! Powered by SB Nation and Bleeding Green Nation.The Postseason Picture - Iggles BlitzEvery team starts the season with the goal of getting into “the tournament”. The Eagles got in and they’re as hot as any team in the league. Let’s talk about this team and some realistic postseason expectations. Last year the Eagles were 13-3 and the #1 seed. They were playing without Carson Wentz and looked vulnerable late in the season. They were underdogs and they knew it. The team used that to motivate themselves and they went out and played at a very high level. They won the Super Bowl. This year is both similar and different. The Eagles didn’t clinch a playoff berth until 7 p.m. on the final Sunday of the year. This team had its share of struggles all year long, even during the 5-1 finish. The 2017 team was like a machine, finding a way to win all year long. They overcame injuries and played at a high level for most of the year. That’s very different than the current situation.Michael Bennett And His ‘Spider-Sense’ Lifting D-Line - PE.comAmong the many moves Howie Roseman made in the months after the Eagles won Super Bowl LII was an aggressive trade that sent a fifth-round draft pick and wide receiver Marcus Johnson to Seattle for defensive end Michael Bennett and a seventh-round draft pick. It was a head-scratcher for many reasons at the time. Why would Seattle trade a player of Bennett’s stature, a veteran who had won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks and who was so consistently productive year after year? Why would the Eagles take on a player at a position where they were already deep? How would Bennett, who carried with him a questionable reputation, fit into an established locker room with a Super Bowl culture? Roseman and the Eagles made it clear why they wanted Bennett and how they expected him to fit in. “He’s an outstanding pass rusher and a defensive lineman who does it all,” Roseman said shortly after the trade was made. “Michael Bennett is an established, proven player in this league and he’s going to add to what we do on defense.”The Five Biggest Questions Heading Into the NFL’s Wild-Card Weekend - The RingerCombine all that with Philadelphia’s top-notch coaching staff, and the Eagles get frightening in a hurry. Over the past few weeks, head coach Doug Pederson’s offensive staff has once again shown a remarkable ability to put Foles in advantageous spots. Last postseason, the Eagles relied heavily on play-action and RPOs to provide Foles with easy throws. Pederson has used plenty of play-action fakes this season, too, and he’s also mixing those throws with jet motion and other window dressing that’s made the Eagles passing game a pain to defend. Looking at this weekend’s matchup against Chicago, the Eagles appear to be in a decent spot. Philly’s most significant weakness is its depleted and inexperienced secondary, and the Bears aren’t exactly built to torch teams down the field. But even against teams with more high-octane passing attacks, the Eagles’ formula makes them a factor in the NFC playoff race. There may be a shrine built to Foles in the Philly locker room, but it’s the surrounding elements of this Eagles team—many of the same ones that lifted them to a Super Bowl title a year ago—that could have them making noise in the playoffs yet again.Buffalo Bills fire offensive line coach Juan Castillo, per report - Buffalo RumblingsWhile many would say Castillo was saddled with sub-par talent on the offensive line Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys Stitched , you could also argue that he was working with lots of NFL experience at his disposal. Buffalo signed Russell Bodine and Marshall Newhouse last off-season and drafted Wyatt Teller to solidify the offensive line, but they could not gel this year in the wake of the loss of Eric Wood and Richie Incognito. Buffalo was 21st in rushing yards per attempt in 2018 at 4.2—a figure that was unacceptable to head coach Sean McDermott. That number was buoyed by Josh Allen, who averaged 7.1 yards per attempt. Running backs averaged just 3.5 yards per carry in 2018. Quarterbacks were sacked on 7.6% of their drop-backs this season.Report: Antonio Brown has requested a trade from the Steelers - Behind The Steel CurtainAccording to La Confora, the reason behind Brown’s request is the fact he has an issue with both Mike Tomlin and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. More specifically, he feels Tomlin is in too “aligned” with Roethlisberger. If the team wants to trade Brown, it won’t come without a price, both figuratively and literally. The literal price would be the $21 million dead money hit the team would suffer if they decided to deal the All-Pro receiver. The figurative price would be the lack of production on the field without Brown in the lineup. JuJu Smith-Schuster is a tremendous young talent, but has benefited greatly from the defensive attention being paid to No. 84.The biggest strength of every NFL playoff team - SB NationIt’s really difficult to paint Philadelphia as a serious contender, but if you can get your defense off the field on third downs, you’re going to give yourself a chance in any game. In open-play situations, the Eagles create the longest third downs in the league, and they’re at least decent at capitalizing on them. Granted, there are caveats. They don’t create enough third downs — in open play, they are 21st in the percentage of first downs opponents generate on first or second down, and they’re dead last in big-play rate allowed. This is their fatal flaw, and it’s severely enmeshed with their biggest strength. That means you absolutely have to capitalize when you indeed find a third-and-long situation. But Philly has, and that’s a major reason why they won five of their last six games and squeezed into the playoffs. They were out-gained in two of those five wins, too — they’ll let you maneuver down the field, but they have been able to count on stopping before you get all the way into the end zone....Social Media Information:BGN Facebook Page: Click here to like our pageBGN Twitter: Follow @BleedingGreenBGN Manager: Brandon Lee Gowton: Follow @BrandonGowtonBGN Radio Twitter: Follow @BGN_Radio
