Saints vs. Eagles Wild Card Playoff Score: Saints Losing 7-6 After Two Drew Brees Interceptions

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints are losing to the Philadelphia Eagles 7-6 after the first half of play in the 2014 NFC Wild Card playoff game at Lincoln Financial Field.

The New Orleans Saints are lucky to only be down 7-6 to the Philadelphia Eagles following two ugly interceptions by Drew Brees. The Saints will live and die by Drew's arm. They have no chance to win this game if he doesn't correct this in the second half.

It has been a low-scoring, defensive battle thus far. The Saints defense has done an incredible job of limiting LeSean McCoy.

Surprisingly, the Saints running game has been effective with 94 rushing yards behind Mark Ingram. That's, like, more than they've ever had in any game ever. The Saints should probably stick with the ground game moving forward.

The Eagles will start the second half with the ball.
