The Philadelphia Eagles have St. Nick, and he

This past Sunday Womens Drew Brees Jersey , perennial pocket passer, Tom Brady, achieved his 1,000th rushing yard. It took him 265 games since the year 2000 to do it. Unlike Randall Cunningham, Steve Young, or Michael Vick, who rushed for more than 13,000 yards combined, Brady has done most of his damage strictly from the pocket.Drew Brees has played with a very similar style throughout his concurrent career. Since entering the league one year later in 2001, Brees has rushed for 762 yards in 261 games. Though neither passer will be remembered for his legs, it appears that Brady holds a slight advantage when it comes to rushing statistics. While Brees averaged 1.6 yards per carry and 2.9 yards per game, Brady averaged 1.7 yards per carry and 3.8 yards per game. Brees’ three most prolific rushing seasons were for 84, 85, and 86 yards (2011) Michael Thomas Jersey White , with only one of them coming in a Saints uniform. Brady’s three most prolific rushing seasons were for 110, 102, and 109 yards (2011). Neither have come close to repeating their rushing totals from 2011.Brees has scored 116 1st downs in 465 career rushing attempts, which is good for around a 25% 1st down conversion rate. Brady has scored 198 1st downs in 579 career rushing attempts, which is good for around a 30% 1st down conversion rate.Brees has fumbled 21 times (or once every 22 attempts) to Brady’s 28 (once every 21 attempts), so we’re splitting hairs here as it comes down to volume of attempts. It’s clear both future first ballot Hall of Famers have relied on their arms more than their legs, though they are both still dominant despite their “one-dimensional” styles of play.Since Brees needs 238 more rushing yards to hit 1000, we can assume, at his current rate, that he won’t hit that mark for roughly another 82 games. That’s five seasons, and even though Brees has said he would like to play until age 45, it’s more unlikely than likely to happen.It’s a good thing career rushing stats are probably the last thing Brees cares about as he pursues several more important tasks at hand. Among them, position his team for the playoffs, win his first MVP , and win his second Super Bowl.It’s perhaps more likely than we think. The Philadelphia Eagles have St. Nick, and he hasn’t let them down in the clutch. The problem on Sunday is that New Orleans has a lot of Saints — and a stronger team.Nick Foles has been nothing short of superb in replacing Carson Wentz, first in the 2017 season when he guided Philly to its first NFL championship since 1960. And now, with Wentz again injured, Foles helped the Eagles slalom their way to an NFC wild-card berth.Then, as in last February’s Super Bowl win over New England, he drove the Eagles to a late winning touchdown at Chicago.Can he keep it up? He’ll have to against Drew Brees & Co. in the Superdome, where the Saints annihilated the Eagles 48-7 on Nov 18, Philadelphia’s only loss by more than seven points all season.From there, the Eagles have won six of seven, counting the 16-15 decision over the Bears last week.“It’s a credit to the players and the coaches for just kind of staying in the moment, just trying to win the week, starting with today,” coach Doug Pederson says. “Just win today and then win tomorrow Drew Brees Jersey White , try to go 1-0 each week. That’s been the mentality and the mindset all season, even during those couple weeks of adversity in there.“You still have to have a belief that we can get it done. The players do believe. They just come to work every day ready to go. There’s great leadership on the team. It’s really kind of held us together and pulled us through this stretch, and really the last three games of the regular season, I mean, they were all must win. Guys really understood what we needed to do, came together. They’ve jelled and here we are today.”Where they are is ranked No. 12 in the final AP Pro32 and 8-point underdogs against No. 1 New Orleans. It’s hard not to share the faith in Foles and the Eagles after seeing what they have done. Then again, looking at their secondary and how Chicago found lots of open room, it’s impossible not to believe in the home team.SAINTS, 31-20No. 5 (tie) Los Angeles Chargers (plus 4) at No. 5 (tie) New England, SundayLet’s begin by mentioning that the Chargers are the better team. Right now, they might be the best overall team in the league. Should they win at Gillette Stadium, Pro Picks will be tempted to ride them all the way to and through Atlanta.However, Philip Rivers never beats Tom Brady (0-7 is quite an ugly number) and the Patriots are the only unbeaten home team this season. Plus, the weather could be a factor Marcus Davenport Jersey White , which always favors New England.BEST BET: PATRIOTS, 23-16No. 8 Indianapolis (plus 5) at No. 4 Kansas City, Saturday.Last weekend’s most impressive squad? The Colts, by far.Indeed, over the last two months, it’s difficult to find any team that has been more dangerous and dynamic than Indianapolis. Andrew Luck, finally healthy, is playing at his highest level. The offensive line is a wall, the defense has become a force, and the coaching is first-rate.The Chiefs have so much going for them when they have the ball, led by Patrick Mahomes’ passing in Andy Reid’s brilliant schemes. They have hardly anything except a pass rush going for them on defense, and Indy doesn’t allow sacks or even much pressure on Luck.Plus, the Colts are 4-0 in the playoffs against Kansas City, which hasn’t gotten to a conference title game since the 1993 season.UPSET SPECIAL: COLTS Womens Marcus Davenport Jersey , 26-24No. 11 Dallas (plus 7) at No. 2 Los Angeles Rams, Saturday nightAnother prime-time showcase for Ezekiel Elliott, and he’ll need to be extremely productive, as he was vs. Seattle.So, though, will his counterpart, Todd Gurley, likely back from a knee injury and crucial to the Rams advancing.Dallas has a solid enough defense to keep the creative Rams off-balance, especially if Gurley is limited. Los Angeles has not looked like a power in the last month and needed to straighten out some issues in the bye week.Still, we can’t see an upset here.RAMS, 23-17
