PHILADELPHIA – Here is the reality of the dominant New Orleans Saints crime – law can not generally stop them. They can only hope to contain them.
Few have done it.
Now the eagles (4-5) are in desperate need of a victory and head to Big Easy on Sunday with a spell defense, especially in the secondary, as they try to defend one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL story in Drew Brees.
The eagles have one of NFL's best points, but this will be the toughest test yet.
After all, Saints (8-1) scored a score of at least 40 points five times and is free from an outbreak of Bengals, a potential playoff, struck them 51-14 and caused the firing of Cincinnati's defensive coordinator.
Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz would probably not be kicked off a week, but it would not really help his job security.
So what can the eagles do?
