- Jan. 13, 2007: Saints 27, Eagles 24
(First in a series of Eagles playoff moments leading up to Saturday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints.)
The Eagles failed to hold onto an early lead in a loss to the Saints in the divisional round of the playoffs at the Superdome in New Orleans. They went ahead 21-13 in the third quarter on running back Brian Westbrook's 62-yard touchdown run, but the Saints responded with 14 unanswered points. The Eagles had a chance to at least tie it, but quarterback Jeff Garcia's fourth-down, fourth-quarter completion to wide receiver Hank Baskett was wiped out by a controversial illegal procedure penalty on backup guard Scott Young.
Young was forced into action in the first quarter when Pro Bowl guard Shawn Andrews left the game with swelling in his neck that resulted in him being taken to a nearby hospital for observation.
