PHILADELPHIA – There is a lot of attention when watching New Orleans. Blink and Drew Brees may have led two more touch units. It is a team that can win quickly, with a defense that is quite opportunistic to slow down controversial crimes to gain a breathing room.
There are plenty of challenges for the Philadelphia Eagles who are struggling with this NFC affair this afternoon. These are five matches to watch.

Let's look at Drew Brees numbers this season: 77.3% finish, 2.601 yards, 21 landings, one catch, 8.6 yards per try. This is a difficult task for any defense, not to mention the absence of the two most beautiful backstage and the free security begins from the beginning of the season. So the short-handed Eagles will have to include a crime that scores more than 36 points per game and the one that dropped 35 points in the first half of last week's victory over Cincinnati Bengals. It's hard.

There's a lot of intrigue around Eagles cornerback Sidney Jones. He was one of the best talents who joined the NFL in 2017, but the ripped Achilles during his stream in Washington caused his stock to slip. Last season he appeared in only one game. Nickel won the training camp this season and seemed to have settled down happily before a hamstring accident occurred in week 6. He was in the middle of the season, The weekend is about to come back and it will be so that Ronald Darby (torn ACL) and Jalen Mills (foot) are going on Sunday. Jones will be worthy of the fire against Michael Thomas, who is one of the most productive broadsets this season with 78 catches per 950 yards and seven landings this season. It will be interesting to see if Jones can be a defensive cornerstone.
