Saints-Eagles predictions Saints-Eagles predictions Advocate story Jan. 05, 2014 Comments Sheldon Mickles: Saints 24, Eagles 20 The Saints have done everything they can do to get this “can’t-win-on-the-road” thing off their back while getting ready to face a surging Eagles team. Now, can they do it when it counts … on the field? The offense does it early and the defense seals it late. Ramon Antonio Vargas: Saints 20, Eagles 17 Though they lost and struggled to protect Drew Brees, the Saints played well enough to win their last road game at Carolina. Carolina’s much better than Philadelphia. A similar effort — with better pass protection — will get the Saints their first road playoff win.
