Going into the game Saturday night I gave the Philadelphia Eagles a 50/50 percent chance of winning against the New Orleans Saints. My main reason was for the Eagles’ defense. As you know the defense has improved from the beginning of the year but there are needs on the defensive squad which will be addressed during the off-season. But the defense can only be blamed for two of the five mistakes that caused the loss to the Saints on Saturday. Every team makes mistakes during a game. But in the play-offs each mistake is exploited and quite possibly cost them the game which is exactly what happened. I will list them in order of impact from lowest to highest.
