NFL playoffs 2014: Eagles vs. Saints open thread

Here's an understatement: the 2014 NFL playoffs started with a bang. Trailing 38-10 to the Kansas City Chiefs in the third quarter, Andrew Luck led the Indianapolis Colts on a furious 35-6 rally over the final quarter and a half to pull off a massive, come-from-behind, 45-44 win to advance to the divisional round. Comparisons to the Buffalo Bills' famous Comeback Game are apt. This was one of the more entertaining playoff games ever played.

Now, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New Orleans Saints will try to follow that masterpiece up with one of their own. Philly, coached by NFL rookie Chip Kelly and behind the unbelievably surprising quarterback play of Nick Foles and the league's best rushing attack, are 10-6 and hosting a well-seasoned Saints team helmed by Sean Payton and Drew Brees. It might not be epic comeback good, but this game shapes up to be every bit the offensive thriller that the first game was.

This is your open thread for tonight's Eagles/Saints game. Who are you rooting for, Bills fans?
