That includes the Saints and Falcons. I dont like the Falcons, its fans, or how they operate, but them as well as us are heads and shoulders better than the Vikings or Eagles and would of been way better matchup to the patriots who will most likely sail to victory in the SB. This is where home field advantage got to be too much of an advantage this year with 2 teams with lack luster resumes getting the byes.

Considering dome teams are now 0-13 when conference championship games are played outside, history wouldn't be on our side.

But I have to believe that because a few short years ago the Saints got their first ever road playoff win in Philly, the team knows they can win there.

Plus the Eagles and their fans would remember Ingram running the ball down their throats!

Re: Could The Saints Have Beat Philly?

I'd like to think we'd won. It's a very difficult thing to answer though and nobody will ever really know. I get that Philly blew out the team that beat us. Football isn't some 1 to 1 linear thing though... and is very much a game of match-ups. Often it's more like rock paper scissors than anything.

I know we matched up with Philly better than Minnesota did. That's all I will say.

We would have given Philly a better game, Keenum finally got exposed.

I lived in Philly for 3 years & for the most part they are a well respected, passionate fan base but that 3% or so ... oh boy, scary

Hard to say, I do know it would have been a completely different game. I am confident Drew would have recovered from the pick, better than Keenum. Vikes d looked toasted from the start. Philly looked good, thought Pederson called a pretty good game for foles. Oh well, on to next year

Re: Could The Saints Have Beat Philly?

Since we'll never really know...Hell Yeah! We woulda blown them out.

Drew throws for 400 passing yards, Ingram and Kamara each go for over a hundred rushing yards.. Against that defense, a 50 burger easily.

On the other side of the ball, Lattimore picks of Foles at least twice and Cam Jordan gets at least 4 sacks. A fumble recovery for a touchdown wouldn't surprise me either. They might have got a field goal in garbage time, otherwise it woulda been a shut out.

Hypothetically speaking of course.
