Philadelphia Eagles Prepare To Face Drew Brees

Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.

Will The Saints March Off With A Victory?

After nearly pulling off an upset win at Green Bay last weekend (Packers won 28-27), the Saints limped home to the bayou as one of only two remaining winless teams (Cleveland) in the NFL. The Browns’ status does not come as a big shocker. The Saints’, however, is definitely more of a surprise.
