If you asked me if I believed in fairy-tale like stories in the beginning of the season, I would have told you no.

But the Philadelphia Eagles’ 2013-2014 season has been magical, fairy-tale like story that no analyst could have predicted or fan could have hoped for. Bouncing back from an abysmal season just a year ago to a play-off berth seemed unrealistic. The Eagles have won 7 of their past 8 games with a different quarterback than the one who started at the beginning of the season. The Eagles have truly defied all odds and are ready to take on any challenge.

Getting into the play-offs was a miracle. But, don’t expect the magical 2013-2014 campaign to end there.

There were questions to whether Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly’s high-flying offense could succeed in the NFL. Finishing the season 10-6 and winning the division, Chip Kelly proved that his high-octane offense can work. Running one of the most lethal offensives in the NFL Kelly has proved his doubters and many fans wrong. Going into tonight’s game after winning 7 of the last 8 games, you can expect the Philadelphia Eagles’ momentum to carry them to another victory tonight at Lincoln Financial Field.

I am a man of numbers. The New Orleans Saints are 0-5 in away play-off games. This is an organization that flourishes at home, and struggled when away. And let me tell you the 0 in that statistic is not changing.

Game Prediction:

Eagles 33, Saints 30

Fly Eagles Fly!
