HEAD TO HEAD
The Saints won the NFC South and a bye, aided by a 10-game winning streak from Week 2 to 12. The Eagles have won four in a row and beat the Bears 16-15 in the wild-card round when Golden Tate caught a touchdown pass from Nick Foles on fourth down and Chicago kicker Cody Parker’s field-goal attempt was tipped by the Eagles’ Treyvon Hester, hit the upright and crossbar and bounced out. The Saints have won six of the teams’ last eight meetings.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees dominated the last time he faced the Eagles, a 48-7 rout in November.
