PHILADELPHIA — Several important Philadelphia Eagles contributors will make their postseason debuts on Saturday, when the Birds host the Falcons in the NFC divisional round. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, safety Rodney McLeod and linebacker Nigel Bradham are among the postseason newbees.
On the flip side, though, plenty of Eagles have significant playoff experience, from a slew of past Super Bowl winners to a couple players who appeared in Philly’s 2013 wildcard round loss to the Saints. That’s whom were focusing on here.
We took at look at how some of this year’s Eagles players have fared in past postseasons, whether they were with Philadelphia or a different team. Dive in:
Career playoff stats: 1 game, 69.7 percent completion rate, 195 yards, 2 touchdowns, 0 interceptions
Skinny: Foles made his only playoff start in that 2013 Eagles wildcard defeat, and he played well enough to give the Birds a chance against the Saints. Ultimately, though, quarterback Drew Brees engineered a game-winning drive to push New Orleans past Philly, 26-24.
