Philadelphia - Recently acquired kicker Shayne Graham booted the New Orleans Saints onto the divisional round of the playoffs with a 32-yard field goal as time expired to give New Orleans a 26-24 win over the Eagles on Saturday night at Lincoln Financial Field.

It was the Saints' first road playoff win and should end the talk that has dogged the team for the second half of the season about its problems of winning away from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The Saints (12-5) will take on the Seattle Seahawks (13-3) next Saturday at 3:25 p.m. in Seattle in a divisional playoff game.

The kick was Graham's fourth field goal of the game (36, 46, 35 were the others) as he came through when the Saints needed him most.

Running backs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson turned in strong efforts as the Saints dominated in the run game (36 attempts for 185 yards) and in time of possession (34;53-25:07). Ingram finished with 18 carries for 97 yards and a 4-yard touchdown run while Robinson had eight carries for 45 yards, including several on the final 10-play, 34-yard drive that set up Graham's heroics.

After a tough first half in which he threw two interceptions, Saints quarterback Drew Brees was sensational as he completed 20 of 30 passes for 250 yards and a touchdown (24 yards to Lance Moore).

The Saints' defense held Philadelphia (10-7) in check most of the night and the Nick Foles-led attack only managed 256 total yards of offense. Foles was 23 of 33 for 195 yards and two touchdowns while LeSean McCoy rushed the ball 21 times for 77 yards and a TD. Receiver DeSean Jackson had three receptions for 53 yards.

Offense did just enough to keep us in this game. Our defense won this game for us. The Eagles O helped -- they didn't play very well -- with the dropped balls at very inopportune times.

The overall O yardage is phenomenal.
Saints Passing almost the same as Eagles total offense.
Saints rushing is a mere 70 yards less than Eagles total defense.

The Saints D kept the Saints in the game when we were under par in the 1st half.
