Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints (12-5) got the road-playoff monkey off their collective backs tonight, with a 26-24 win against the Philadelphia Eagles (10-7) in Philly. Shayne Graham's 32-yard field goal as time expired, secured the win for the visiting Saints.

New Orleans had never won a road playoff game (0-5) in the team's history.

The Saints now travel to Seattle to take on the top-seed Seahawks next Saturday. The Seahawks earned a first-round bye and did not play this weekend.
