The last time the Philadelphia Eagles played in New Orleans, they lost 48-7. It was ugly. The Saints ended the game on a 31-0 run, as Carson Wentz finished 19-of-33 for 156 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions to drop Philly to 4-6 on the season.

Well, a lot has changed since that Week 11 debacle. The Eagles have won six of their last seven games, including four in a row with Nick Foles as starting quarterback.

Can the Eagles beat the Saints in their Superdome rematch this Sunday? 

“You’ve got to score early,” Eagles Spanish play-by-play voice Rickie Ricardo said on Taz & The Moose. “I think the Eagles need to jump out in front. Drew Brees hasn’t played in a few weeks, he didn’t participate in their last game, he was off last week – so you never know if they come in a little rusty, if they’re a little bit off. If the Eagles score early, get out in front and make that crowd start to worry a little bit, you never know. Foles’ magic might reappear in the French Quarter.”
