Two games remain on the Philadelphia Eagles‘ regular-season schedule. Before the regular-season finale in Week 18. The Birds do battle with the New Orleans Saints who, despite being 6-9, are facing a must-win scenario of their own. By virtue of playing in an underperforming NFC South, they’re still in the playoff hunt. A win keeps their slim hopes alive, but this game is important to Philly too.
The goals are both simple and achievable: Win, take the NFC East’s crown, and lock up the top seed in the playoffs. We will accept nothing less than a win and their best effort. Here’s your official guide to the game.
