NFL divisional playoff round matchups by the numbers

The last one is concerning.

♦ In Week 11, the Saints thumped the Eagles, 48-7, which was the highest margin of victory (41 points) against a reigning Super Bowl champion in NFL history.

♦ Over New Orleans’ first 11 games, it averaged 37.2 points a game. Over its last five, it averaged just 19.

♦ Since 2006, when Sean Payton and Drew Brees joined forces in New Orleans as coach and quarterback, the Saints are 5-0 in home postseason games. The Saints hold the NFC’s No. 1 seed and the road to the Super Bowl in the conference will run through the Superdome.

♦ Dating back to 2009, the Saints have won four of their last five against the Eagles, including a 2014 tilt in the wild-card round that was played in Philadelphia.

♦ New Orleans had a scoring margin of plus-151 in the regular season, most in the entire NFL. The Eagles tied for 12th with plus-19, the second lowest of all teams to make the postseason.

♦ Philadelphia is 4-4 on fourth-down conversions in the playoffs since 2017.

♦ When the Eagles have a second-half deficit in the playoffs over the past two years, Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles is 3-0.
