(KATC) — After falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter the New Orleans Saints battled back behind two touchdown passes by Drew Brees and a pair of field goals by Wil Lutz to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 20-14 in the NFC divisional round playoffs.

Trailing 20-14, the Eagles had the ball at the Saints’ 27-yard line with just over 2 minutes left to play in the game.

Just when it looked as though Nick Foles was going to lead Philadelphia to yet another come from behind win, his pass to Alshon Jeffery slipped through Jeffery’s hands and was intercepted by Marshon Lattimore to seal the win for New Orleans.

The Saints will host the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship next Sunday at 2:05 pm.
