The New Orleans Saints host the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Divisional Round today.
Led by Drew Brees and boasting the No. 3 scoring offense in the NFL, the Saints are seeking their first Divisional Round win since they won it all in 2009.
In New Orleans’ way is the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, who secured their spot in the Divisional Round with an upset win over the Chicago Bears last week.
ESPN’s computer model has released its prediction for the Eagles-Saints game.
ESPN’s computer model believes that New Orleans has this game in the bag. The computer model gives the Saints a 80.8 percent chance to win this Sunday’s game.
The two teams met in the regular season, with the Saints blowing out the Eagles to the tune of a 48-7 win.
However, Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles is on a four-game playoff winning streak that includes a Super Bowl MVP win over Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
Drew Brees could have his work cut out for him against a team that took down the vaunted Bears defense a week ago.
The game will be played at 4:40 p.m. ET on FOX.
