Saints knock out Ea­gles

Townsville Bulletin - - RACING -

AUS­TRALIAN punter Cameron John­ston’s Su­per Bowl hopes have crashed and burned af­ter his Phil­a­del­phia Ea­gles were knocked out of the NFL play­offs by the New Or­leans Saints.

The Saints, the NFL’S top seed, beat the reign­ing Su­per Bowl cham­pion Ea­gles 20-14.

Gee­long-raised John­ston had a strong game, boot­ing the Ea­gles deep into the Saints’ ter­ri­tory with five punts av­er­ag­ing 48.2 yards.

Af­ter scrap­ing into the play­offs by win­ning their past three games and re­ly­ing on other teams to lose, the Ea­gles were un­der­dogs to beat the Saints.
