The Philadelphia Eagles would be wise not to overlook this Saints team.

Well, 2021 flew by, didn’t it? The Philadelphia Eagles have already played ten of their scheduled 17 games. Thanksgiving Day will be here before you know it, and we’ll all be somewhere rooting against the Dallas Cowboys. It doesn’t even matter who they’ll be playing.

A Cowboys loss on the national stage while sharing time with family always provides a reason for the rest of the country to smile, but Philly can’t put too much stock in that. They’re the best team in the NFC East right now, and the Eagles need to take care of their own business.

If Philly is serious about making a postseason push, which, believe it or not, is a real possibility, they have to take the ‘one game at a time’ approach. Step one is winning their first home game of the season, a Week 11 date versus the New Orleans Saints.

The Birds are favored. Week 10’s win versus the Denver Broncos was a huge step forward for this young coaching staff and team, but it would be wise not to get too overconfident. This is a good Saints team despite all of the injuries, and here are ten of their players that can ruin Week 11 for the Philadelphia Eagles.
