NFC Wildcard Game Thread: Saints vs. Eagles

Game thread for the Saints vs. Eagles NFC Wildcard Game.

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

Well, the NFL playoffs started off with a bang as the Indianapolis Colts, down 38-10 in the third quarter, put together a ridiculous comeback against the Chiefs to come away with a 45-44 victory. If the Chargers beat the Bengals tomorrow, that means that the Patriots will host the red hot Colts next weekend.

Tonight, however, there is still one more game to be played as the New Orleans Saints travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles in a match-up between six and three. While most seem to be going with the Eagles, I'm going with the Saints. Yes, picking New Orleans on the road is a risky proposition. But I simply think the Saints are the better overall team, and the Eagles don't have that championship pedigree. Greg's Prediction: Saints 27 Eagles 24
