It's the Saints

Thanks to a 32-yard field goal from Shayne Graham as time expired, the Saints beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-24, Saturday night.

New Orleans will now head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks in Saturday's divisional-round playoff game at 1:30 p.m.

The Seahawks mopped up New Orleans in the only meeting this season between the two. Seattle beat New Orleans 34-7 in a Week 13 Monday Night matchup that was never close.

The Seahawks took a 17-0 first-quarter lead thanks to a Michael Bennett fumble return for a touchdown and a Zach Miller 2-yard touchdown reception.

Backup fullback Derrick Coleman scored an 8-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees was 23-for-38 for only 147 yards. He averaged a mere 3.9 yards per pass. The Saints ran for just 44 yards on 17 carries and appear a prime matchup for the Seahawks.
