Saints Nation: Pregame Saints @ Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Saints today at Lincoln Financial Field for 12 noon Central, 1pm Eastern. Both teams enter the season 1-0 as the Saints and Eagles both won very comfortable games against the Lions and Panthers, respectively.

Out for Saints: Jammal Brown (hip), Darnell Dinkins (ankle), Kendrick Clancy (knee).

One week into the NFL season this matchup will feature the #1 offense in the NFL against the #1 defense in the NFL. The Eagles held the Panthers to just 169 yards last week while the Saints amassed 515 yards against Detroit. The Saints currently rank #7 on defense and the Eagles are #23 on offense. Keep in mind these rankings are based on just one game so they do not mean much, but the fact remains that the Saints-Eagles matchup when the Saints have the ball should be VERY interesting.

It's also been confirmed, Kevin Kolb will start at QB for the Eagles.

Enjoy the game and Geaux Saints!
