The New Orleans Saints became the first team in the NFC to clinch a playoff berth with Sunday’s win over the Atlanta Falcons coupled with the Chicago Bears falling to the Detroit Lions.
This week, the New Orleans Saints face the Philadelphia Eagles, with a victory by New Orleans giving the Saints their fourth-consecutive NFC South title. The Eagles are not going to go down without a fight, though. Despite a losing record, the Eagles are still very much in the hunt in the lowly NFC East, and the organization will be in search of a spark behind rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts, making his first career start in the NFL.
