    The Saints brought their high-flying offense to Philadelphia in search of the franchise’s first road playoff victory, but it was an old-fashioned power running game – and the leg of Shayne Graham – that got the job done.Mark Ingram rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown and Graham kicked four field goals, including the game winner from 32 yards as time expired, to lift New Orleans to a thrilling 26-24 victory over the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday night.The sixth-seeded Saints (12-5), who had come into the game with an 0-5 road playoff mark, go on the road again to play the top-seeded Seattle Seahawks (13-3) next week. The Eagles, champions of the NFC East, finished 10-7.New Orleans ran the ball 36 times and threw it only 30 against Philadelphia, a change in offensive style for a team accustomed to big plays from the arm of quarterback Drew Brees,Step into the limelight in party dresses and Discount White tulle sweatheart Beaded Cocktail/prom dresses with sequins, who threw for more than 5,100 yards during the season.”We got into the game and we saw how well it was working,” Saints offensive guard Jahri Evans said. “It makes it hard to get away from it. We had seen what other teams did against them. With our backs, with our guys up front, we thought we could do it.”

    So, with starting running back Pierre Thomas injured, were the Eagles expecting 185 yards rushing from New Orleans, 142 of it from the tandem of Mark Ingram (97 yards) and Khiry Robinson (45 yards)?”I don’t know if anyone would come play us looking for that,” said Saints offensive lineman Zach Strief, “but we thought we had a size advantage up front. And we knew if they wanted to take things away,The options for partying are all but limitless White tulle beaded ball gown wedding dresses they’d have to give something up. I guess it’s the advantage of having a lot of weapons.”Strief said he was not surprised by how well New Orleans’ big backs performed.”Mark Ingram has just gotten better and better, he’s much more comfortable with what we’re doing,” Strief said. “And Khiry (Robinson), he has been working so hard. He really runs with an edge.”The Eagles were far more concerned about stopping Brees and his favorite target, tight end Jimmy Graham, who led all NFL tight ends with 86 catches and 16 touchdowns in the regular season. Philadelphia mostly kept the two in check, as Brees had a below-average game by his standards, 20 of 30 passing attempts for 250 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Graham finished with three receptions for 44 yards.

    “I thought their backs ran extremely hard,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. “If you told me we were going to hold Jimmy Graham to three catches… I thought that would be a pretty good deal. But give them credit, they did a really good job of running the football against us.”"I think at some point when you win a game like that, it’s kind of broken down to the essence of the line of scrimmage of football, and your will to keep pushing and get the first down,” Payton said. “Those guys fought hard and, again, we played a good team. That line of scrimmage was the difference,From glamorous maxi dresses for that special occasion to fun and flirty Wholesale Cheap Party Dresses Online set for painting the town red, I think.”The Philadelphia defenders acknowledged they had keyed on trying to slow down the Saints’ vaunted pass game.”They ran a lot more, and they are a passing team, which is what we worried about this week,” said Philadelphia linebacker Brandon Graham. “We knew they were going to run it here and there, but we definitely did not think they were going to run it as much as they did.”
