What to Know
The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at home. Philadelphia will be strutting in after a win while New Orleans will be stumbling in from a loss.
The Eagles strolled past the Denver Broncos with points to spare last week, taking the game 30-13. WR DeVonta Smith was the offensive standout of the contest for Philadelphia, snatching two receiving TDs.
Special teams collected 12 points for Philadelphia. K Jake Elliott delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought matchup, but New Orleans had to settle for a 23-21 defeat against the Tennessee Titans last week. New Orleans' defeat came about despite a quality game from QB Trevor Siemian, who passed for two TDs and 298 yards on 34 attempts. Siemian ended up with a passer rating of 148.90.
This next contest is expected to be close, with the Eagles going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. Their home turf has been no bettor's paradise, though, as they've failed to beat the spread in three of their four home games.
Philadelphia is now 4-6 while the Saints sit at 5-4. Two stats to keep an eye on: Philadelphia enters the contest with 144.5 rushing yards per game on average, good for third best in the league. But New Orleans ranks first in the NFL when it comes to rushing yards allowed per game, with only 72.9 on average. These opposing strengths should make for an exciting matchup.
