The Philadelphia Eagles season ended early when they lost to the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs Saturday night. Drew Brees led his team to victory despite throwing two interceptions.
Nick Foles on the other hand was closer to perfect throwing no interceptions and two touchdown passes. Some inside the Eagles locker room felt like the Saints weren’t the better team.
“I felt like this was the year,” left tackle Jason Peters said, via Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com. “We would have won, we would have had to go face [No. 2 seed] Carolina. I felt real good about playing them, but like I said, we got knocked out and we’re at home now.
“They got lucky and beat us. We beat ourselves in the first half and they came out with the win.”
He wasn’t the only one feeling this way.
“We lost to a team that wasn’t necessarily better than us,” cornerback Cary Williams said. “They weren’t better than us. Period. But [they were] better tonight. They got the job done.”
