The Eagles want to get back at the Saints.
Philadelphia beat one of the best defenses in the NFL on Sunday, topping the Bears 16-15 in Chicago thanks to a bizarre missed field goal. Now they’ll have to face another top defense in New Orleans.
The Saints beat the Eagles 48-7 back in Week 11. Offensive tackle Jason Peters has been vocal about wanting the highly coveted rematch.
“We didn’t play well at all,” Peters said, via NJ.com. “They ran up the score. We wanted them again, we got them again.”
Philadelphia’s entire offense was stagnant in that game. Carson Wentz threw three interceptions and no touchdowns. The Eagles also only managed 58 yards on the ground against the NFL’s best in terms of defending the run at the time.
New Orleans gave up 1,283 rushing yards during the regular season, which was second only to Chicago’s 1,280.
Even still, Peters has a message for the Saints.
“This time, hey, we coming,” Peters said. “It’s definitely not going to be the same outcome.”
The Eagles will play the Saints on Sunday at 4:40 p.m. ET.
