The New Orleans Saints survived an almost epic comeback from the Philadelphia Eagles , being outscored 13–7 in the second half. Leonard Fournette rushed 16 times for 133 yards and Andy Isabella caught… The Saints now head into an NFC Championship against the San Francisco 49ers, who were the only team to give the Saints a loss this season. “All eyes are on the undefeated 49ers now. Hopefully we can put together 4 Quarters of quality ball so we can bring home this conference championship.”

The Eagles put 20 unanswered on the board to survive . Daniel Jones (ankle) is expected to miss at least one more game, putting Manning under center for Week 15 at home against the Dolphins. It’ s a solid on-paper spot, but Manning is just awful. Miles Sanders briefly left the game in the second half to be treated for cramping and dehydration, and it was Boston Scott who took the opportunity and literally ran with it as the lone playmaking back. A jitterbug at 5'6"/203, Scott was a sixth-round pick of the Saints last year and has been on and off the Eagles ' roster for the past calendar year.

West Coast have overcome the early loss of star goalsneak Liam Ryan and a marking masterclass from Max King to post an eight-point AFL victory over St Kilda at Optus Stadium.

Ryan lasted just 18 minutes of Saturday's match before pinging his left hamstring while celebrating a goal.

His absence was a big early blow, and King's career-best six-goal haul kept the Saints in the match throughout the day.

King snared a whopping eight contested marks, taking Eagles defender Harry Edwards to the cleaners.

EAGLES SURVIVE SUNS SCARE Full match coverage and stats. While the Suns lost their eighth game from as many attempts against the Eagles in Perth, they arguably finished the contest more content after fighting back from 42 points down midway through the third quarter. Refusing to give in and urged on by coach Stuart Dew from the interchange bench, the visitors booted five unanswered goals either side of three-quarter time to give West Coast a major scare – which could have been even bigger if not for wasted opportunities.

Newcastle Eagles survived a late scare to keep their defence of the BBL Trophy alive after beating Bristol Flyers 74-73 on the road on a pair of Rahmon Fletcher free-throws with four seconds to play. In the opening round, the champions trailed by as many as 19 points when GB international Ben Mockford hit nine early points and Josh Wilcher scored a pair of three-pointers to make the score 30-11 just nine minutes in. But Newcastle began their comeback immediately in the second stanza as an Eddie Matthew triple sparked a run of seven straight, and Evan Maxwell made three scores in a row to

The Saints spearhead booted three goals alone in the final quarter to close the margin to seven points with two-and-a-half minutes remaining.

But grand final hero Dom Sheed again stepped up in the big moment, nailing a goal on the run from 40m to seal the 14.10 (94) to 13.8 (86) win in front of 43,657 fans.

Sheed finished with 32 disposals, seven clearances and two goals in a standout display, while Tim Kelly (26 disposals, four score assists, one goal) was influential when West Coast made their move in the second term.

The result improved West Coast's record to 10-8, while St Kilda dropped to 8-10 and facing a major battle to secure a finals berth.

"It was a great display from a young forward," St Kilda coach Brett Ratten said of King.
