Seeking their first win outdoors in nearly three months, the Saints are changing up several things as they prepare to visit the Philadelphia Eagles for a wildcard playoff game Saturday night — from what they wear and drink on game day to what they eat the night before.

But at least one thing that has been constant for the Saints (11-5) under coach Sean Payton hadn’t changed Wednesday: His players were hyper-vigilant about giving Philadelphia (10-6) any bulletin-board material, even when discussing the Eagles’ last-ranked pass defense.

The Eagles surrender a league-high 289.8 yards through the air per game. But if Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wide receivers are salivating at the thought of going to work against that unit, they’ve been more tight-lipped about it than they’ve been about the spicier Beefy Mac they’ll be eating on the road, where they lost five of their last six outings in the regular season and have never won a playoff game.

“When you see a stat like that, you’ve got to look at ... how they’re still winning games, and they’re doing a great job of forcing turnovers,” said rookie receiver Kenny Stills, who has caught five touchdowns and leads the NFL with 20 yards per grab. “(They) can have a million yards (allowed) in a game, but if they’re getting turnovers, (opponents) aren’t scoring.”

Yep, that crossing pattern that Drew throws but doesn't see the LB sitting there, easy pick.
