The New Orleans Saints like the Superdome. They also like to blitz. And blitz. And blitz. On Monday Night in Louisiana, the Saints pressured and sacked the Philadelphia Eagles in route to a 28-13 victory.On center stage, in front of a national television audience, the Saints kept their playoff hopes alive, while the Philadelphia Eagles sunk a little lower with their fourth straight loss.The Hero of the Game goes to New Orleans Saints defensive back Patrick Robinson who set the tone for the game with his big play 99 yard interception return of a Michael Vick pass that provided an early dagger to the heart of the Eagles.Had the Philadelphia Eagles been able to punch it in the end zone on that drive, the game may have been dramatically different. But Robinson made the play of the game, provided the Saints an early lead; and gave them the first boost of momentum that they really never relinquished.Patrick Robinson may have enabled the Saints to keep hope alive in the NFC South, and the ...

2 quarterbacks, 2 increasingly desperate teams

Michael Vick and Drew Brees came into the NFL the same year. Now, they're in the same predicament. Both are the quarterbacks of increasingly desperate teams, the season teetering on the edge of collapse.

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Eagles

If you had told me before the game that the Saints would sack Michael Vick 7 times and hold the Eagles to 7 points, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me they'd yield 447 yards, I'd absolutely believe you. If you told me both would happen, I'd probably seek to have you institutionalized. But that's exactly what happened oddly enough. Make no mistake, the...

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles: Three Bold Predictions

In my (biased) mind, I truly think the Eagles vs. Cowboys is the greatest rivalry in the NFL today. Each time the two teams meet, there is always something on the line.Last year, the Cowboys playoff spot counted on a win in Week 16; unfortunately they lost after Tony Romo went down early on with a hand injury.This year, they will play for their playoff lives.Sitting at 3-5, neither...
