Saints vs Eagles Highlights
The Saints are a tough team to read this season, going as they have through so much transition in recent years. At quarterback, they have Jameis Winston, and wide receiver Michael Thomas ought to be available after missing so much time since his record-setting 2020 season. Alvin Kamara will be sidelined due to suspension, so it’s a different offense. However, their defense is strong, and they will need to lean on this side of the ball to defeat an Eagles team loaded with a great offensive line, exciting QB, and new WR AJ Brown.
Philly is a side that you can easily get carried away with, given the rich depth in players they have. While the addition of AJ Brown from the Titans is the star pickup, their offensive line is ranked as the best in the league by Pro Football Focus. On the other side of the trenches, the defensive line features Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox, with Haasan Reddick anchoring the linebackers. It means they are a solid unit capable of winning against tough opponents like the Saints.
The Eagles lead the record against the Saints 19-15. So, if you bet on NFL games, should you expect another narrow win on the spread? It seems likely, and with the playoffs looming, this could be a must-win for both teams. Back a close Eagles win decided by less than a field goal.
