What to Know
After three games on the road, the Philadelphia Eagles are heading back home. They will square off against the New Orleans Saints at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. New Orleans should still be feeling good after a win, while the Eagles will be looking to get back in the win column.
Philadelphia didn’t finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 40-34 to the Dallas Cowboys this past Saturday. One thing holding Philadelphia back was the mediocre play of RB Miles Sanders, who did not have his best game: he fumbled the ball once.
