For the New Orleans Saints and their fans, this is the first meaningful game since the Black & Gold beat Pittsburgh a few days before Christmas -- a divisional-round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles. 

WWL NFL analyst Mike Detillier is confident.

"I think they win it and they win it by more than ten," said Detillier. 

Drew Brees and the Saints lit up Philadelphia 48-7 the weekend before Thanksgiving. Detillier says the Saints exploited weakness in an Eagle pass defense that he doesn't think has changed much since then.

"The Saints took advantage of it in November," said Detillier. "Personnel-wise, you're basically the same, so why is that going to change?"

Some personnel that has changed: the Eagles now have running back Darren Sproles back in their lineup. Sproles, a former Saint, is a lightning-quick back with big play ability. But Detillier says the Saints also have an offensive weapon back in their lineup that wasn't there in November: wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr.
