. . . New Orleans Saints. . team. 15

The Eagles look to win their third straight game over the Saints in 2022.

We wrap this one with a look at the New Orleans Saints. 19 of 34 games in the all-time series between these two teams have gone to the Eagles. That Drew Brees fellow caused some issues, but Philadelphia has faced backup quarterbacks in 2020 and 2021. They’ve done what they’re supposed to do, beat teams that they’re supposed to beat.

The games have been close. The combined score of the past two games is 60-54. That includes a 40-29 win less than one year ago in a game that was tighter than the score indicates.

Miles Sanders has saved some great performances for the Saints. He’s tallied 209 rushing yards in two career games versus New Orleans. If Philadelphia wants to make it three in a row over the Saints, a heavy dose of Miles Sanders could be what the doctor ordered.

As you look at each of the six opponents on this list, it’s noticeable that the Eagles have had recent success with three of them. That should continue, and maybe, just maybe, they’ll find a way to edge past all six teams. In what should be a tight race with the Dallas Cowboys for divisional superiority, every win could be the determining factor.
