The New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles reported their gameday inactives lists ahead of their kickoff in the divisional round of the 2018 National Football League playoffs.

After finishing 13-3 in the regular season, anything short of a trip to the Super Bowl would be considered a major disappointment for the Saints. The Rams are not far behind at 5/4 odds, while the Eagles are a longshot at 7/1 odds.

The Saints haven't won the Super Bowl since 2009 and this year may be their best chance at taking home the coveted Lombardi Trophy. It was your typical Sunday morning subdued scene on Bourbon Street, but the TV camera did catch the attention of one Saints fan.

Scoreboard at that time: Eagles - 151 yards of offense, 14 points; Saints - 0 yards of offense, 0 points.

The Saints and Eagles kick off at 4:40 p.m. ET at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Eagles were in danger of missing the playoffs but came away with three straight wins to earn a wild-card berth.

When New Orleans got the ball back, they did nothing with it: Mark Ingram got a carry for no gain, and Brees' pass attempts for Ginn and Michael Thomas were incomplete.
