THE KEY MATCHUP

SAINTS QB DREW BREES VS. EA­GLES DE­FENCE

Sunday Sports - - PLAYOFFS -

Dice it up any other way, but this one will come down to whether Philly can keep one of the best quar­ter­backs in his­tory from sur­gi­cally pick­ing them apart as he did in Novem­ber. The Ea­gles sec­ondary, how­ever, was bat­tered that day and not the same as the one Brees faces to­day. Over his ca­reer, Brees has a 4-3 record against the Ea­gles with a 67.6 com­ple­tion per­cent­age for 2,106 yards, 16 TDs and seven in­ter­cep­tions. He’s go­ing to have to be good in this one, against an un­der-rated Philly de­fence and the play­off magic of Nick Foles and head coach Doug Ped­er­son.
