Ertz, the go-to guy

Tight end Zach Ertz has been Philadelphia’s most targeted receiver this year. The Saints better account for him on Sunday afternoon.

Cox getting it done

The rush waits for no man

Brees the gold standard for accuracy

Drew Brees has finished top three among quarterbacks in adjusted completion percentage in nine of last 13 seasons.

Thomas the red zone threat

Michael Thomas has been one of the most reliable targets in the red zone this season. On 21 red zone targets, 18 of them have gone for a first down or a touchdown.

Davis stopping the run

Linebacker Demario Davis has been a great addition to the Saints defense this season, ranking first in run defense grade at his position.

Apple making strides
