Eagles-Saints Flexed To 4:25 PM

As the chase for the postseason gets underway in the second half of 2018, the defending Super Bowl Champions will be in the spotlight.

The NFL announced on Monday that the Week 11 showdown between the Eagles and the New Orleans Saints was flexed to a 4:25 p.m. kickoff. That means starting with this Sunday's prime-time matchup against Dallas, the Eagles will be featured nationally in five of their next six games.

New Orleans knocked the Los Angeles Rams from the ranks of the unbeaten on Sunday with a 45-35 victory. Since losing a 48-40 shootout in Week 1, the Saints have won seven straight games and are in the driver's seat for home-field advantage in the playoffs.

The Eagles and the Saints nearly met in last year's postseason, but New Orleans was upended by The Minneapolis Miracle which resulted in the Vikings coming to Lincoln Financial Field for the NFC Championship Game instead.

During Training Camp, Saints running back Alvin Kamara said that New Orleans would have defeated the Eagles in the NFC title clash. Of course, that's if the Saints made it in the first place.

The last time these two teams met was in 2015 when the Eagles routed the Saints at the Linc 39-17.
