The boys give their immediate, drunken reaction following the Saints’ 26-24 win over the Eagles on Wild Card weekend.

Drew Brees completed 20 of 30 pass attempts for 250 yards and 1 TD for the Saints in the win. He was picked off 2 times by the Eagles defense. LeSean McCoy rushed for 77 yards for Philadelphia, while Nick Foles added 3 yards. Nick Foles threw for 195 yards for the Eagles, while receivers Riley Cooper and DeSean Jackson had 68 and 53 yards respectively.

New Orleans outgained Philadelphia 434-256 yards in the game, while the battle of first downs was won 26-17 by the Saints. New Orleans led the time of possession tally, as the game finished as a 34:53/25:07 split in that important category.

“I am very proud of the Eagles very making the playoffs with a rookie NFL coach a 2 year QB and young defense. My question is, Shouldn’t coach Kelly let the Saints score when they were well within FG range giving the Eagles the ball back with 1:30 left on the clock? Wouldn’t that have given the Eagles a better control of the clock and potential score?”

The Saints scored a pair of third-quarter touchdowns – Brees’ 24-yard strike to Lance Moore and Ingram’s 4-yard plunge – to take a 20-7 lead, but the Eagles answered right back with a seven-play drive capped by McCoy’s TD run on fourth-and-1. The teams traded field goals early in the fourth quarter, leaving Philadelphia still down six points, before a 40-yard pass interference penalty on New Orleans cornerback Corey White set up Foles’ 3-yard TD to Zach Ertz with 4:54 remaining.

Sproles returned the ensuing kickoff 39 yards and was horse-collar tackled by Cary Williams, adding another 15 yards onto the end of the run. The Saints faced a pair of third-and-1 situations on the final drive, but Brees got the first down easily both times via quarterback sneaks, and Graham’s kick split the uprights.
