Graham's FG on final play sends Saints over Eagles
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Shayne Graham nailed a game-winning 32- yard field goal as time expired and the New Orleans Saints defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-24, in the NFC Wild Card Round on Saturday night.
After Eagles quarterback Nick Foles flipped a go-ahead 3-yard TD pass to Zach Ertz with 4:54 left, Drew Brees converted two key third downs with a pair of quarterback sneaks on the ensuing Saints' possession.
Graham, who replaced Garrett Hartley after Week 15, then ended New Orleans' road playoff hex. It was the Saints' first road playoff win in six tries.
The Saints move on to face the NFC's No. 1 seeded Seahawks next Saturday afternoon in Seattle.
Brees was 20-of-30 for 250 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, while Mark Ingram carried the ball 18 times for 97 yards and a touchdown.
Foles completed 23-of-33 passes for 195 yards and two scores, while LeSean McCoy ran for 77 yards and a score, but averaged just 3.7 yards per carry.
