In NFL Divisional Championship, we will see Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints.
The Philadelphia Eagles are a totally different team than the one that got beaten by the Saints in November. Nick Foles is leading the team very well and the players got their swagger back. They started to look like the team who won the Super Bowl last year, especially on defense. Nick Foles is completing 72.3% of his passes for 1413 yards, 7 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. The Eagles have been great in their last 2 games, giving up just 7.5 points per game.
The Saints earned the top seed in the NFC thanks to their great season. They managed to get to 10 straight wins at one point before running into the Cowboys. New Orleans was one of the best offensive teams in the regular season, averaging 31.5 points per game and for the most part, they were also well organized on defense, giving up 22.1 points per game. Drew Brees had another impressive season, completing 74.4 percent of his passes for 3,992 yards, 32 touchdowns, and five interceptions.
The spread seems a bit high to me. The Eagles are playing very well at the moment and they will be looking for revenge against the Saints who slowed down a bit in recent weeks.
