The Saints ran for 185 yards, their second highest output on the ground this season in their 26-24 victory over the Eagles Saturday night.
The Saints rushed for 28 yards on their game-winning drive, which culminated with a 32-yard field goal with no time remaining.
The Eagles had a logical game plan. It just didn’t work out, Jordan Raanan of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
“I was putting calls out there that were about stopping the pass, which left us light in the run,” Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. “So that run game is on me. The plan going in was to keep the points allowed down. That passing game is very potent.”
“We came up short. We know that,” Davis said. “It really was the game plan. We were going to take their passing game away.”
