The Eagles have gone 16-11 (.593) all-time against the Saints, their second-best record against any opponent they've faced at least 15 times (vs. Pit - .627). New Orleans has won five of the last seven games between these teams, including both postseason matchups.

The defending champion Eagles face an uphill battle to make the playoffs; only 13.1 percent (34-of-259) of teams to start 4-5 in the Super Bowl era reached the postseason. Philadelphia has forced only seven turnovers this season, tied for third-fewest in the NFL, after forcing 31 last year, fourth-most.

The Saints won their eighth straight game last week, scoring 51 points against the Bengals. It was the seventh instance of a Saints team scoring 50 or more, including once last season. New Orleans is the only team in the NFL with multiple 50+ point games since 2017.

Zach Ertz has 75 receptions in nine games this season, becoming the first tight end in the Super Bowl era to reach that total in fewer than 10 games. The previous fastest was Jason Witten, who reached 75 receptions in the 11th game of the 2012 season.

Michael Thomas has caught at least three passes in each of his 40 career games, the longest streak to open a career all-time. The next-longest streak belongs to Anquan Boldin, who caught at least three passes in each of his first 31 career games.

There are five quarterbacks league-wide with 15+ passing touchdowns, fewer than five interceptions and at least 7.50 yards per attempt. Carson Wentz (15/3/7.99) and Drew Brees (21/1/9.04) are two of them -- the others are Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan.
