Open thread: Sunday's playoff action

Coming up today/tonight:

Chargers at Patriots - 1:05 p.m. ET


Eagles at Saints - 4:40 p.m. ET

After benefiting from a couple of lucky bounces - on the same play - last week, the Eagles are improbably one game away from the NFC title game.

At this stage last season, the Saints choked away an almost certain win against the Vikings on Stefon Diggs' long touchdown catch as time expired. However, this Saints' outfit is much stronger. They went 13-3 in the regular season and it will be an upset if Nick Foles is somehow able to lead the Eagles to victory.

Drew Brees has had a phenomenal year for the Saints. He's the league's leading passer with the sixth highest single-season quarterback rating of all time. Alvin Kamara (almost 1,600 yards from scrimmage) and Michael Thomas (125 receptions) offer support on offense while Cameron Jordan (12 sacks) leads the defense. Their leading tackler is former Jet Demario Davis.
