PHILADELPHIA - Cold, shmold.

There was nothing biting, winter-wise, Saturday night at Lincoln Financial Field. No snow, no wind, no threat of frostbite.

And the only thing in hibernation for most of three quarters was the vaunted Philadelphia Eagles offence. Especially its league-leading rushing attack.

So there wasn’t any reason the New Orleans Road Saints couldn’t play like their far more lethal alter-egos, the New Orleans Home Saints, in their NFC wildcard game against the Eagles.

That they eventually did after a shaky first half, in a thrilling 26-24 NFC wild-card playoff victory.
