For the second consecutive week the New Orleans Saints (2-0) met a NFC foe and rolled to a convincing victory. Today’s opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1), had pulled to within four points of the Saints at the half, 17-13, but the Saints exploded for two touchdowns within four minutes of each other to start the second half and never looked back, winning 48-22.

“I think it was a big win for us in all three phases of the game,” said Head Coach Sean Payton after the game. “We made at least one big play on special teams, led by the forced fumble to start the second half that took it from a four point lead to an 11 point lead.”

Payton continued, saying, “This is a very good team we played today and this is a really tough place to play. I think looking back on it, I would say that the turnover battle was probably the deciding factor in the game today.”
