Eagles-Saints Preview

The defending Super Bowl champions are facing an uphill climb just to make the playoffs -- and the steepest test awaits this weekend.

The Philadelphia Eagles are two games out of first place in the NFC East, have yet to record back-to-back wins this season and now must face the league's hottest team when they visit the high-powered New Orleans Saints on Sunday night.

While the Eagles (4-5) were absorbing another costly loss at home in Sunday's 27-20 setback to division rival Dallas, the Saints (8-1) extended their winning streak to eight games by rolling up a season-high point total in a 51-14 mauling at the Cincinnati Bengals.
