With the Eagles vs. Saints on Sunday, you’re almost guaranteed to get a shoutout.

After receiving a first-round playoff bye, the Saints will have to face the surging Eagles—who have won six of their last seven and who, for the second straight season, have sustained the magic of having backup quarterback Nick Foles as their late-year starter. While Philadelphia knocked off the betting favorite Bears last week, the Eagles vs. the Saints matchup could be much tougher. New Orleans has one of the best offenses in the league, and its defense, for the most part, has been impressive in the second half of the season. Even if you’ve cut the cable cord, you can still watch this contest on a live stream to get your NFL playoff fix.

Other ways to watch NFL playoff games today on TV

1) Locast

Locast is a not-for-profit service offering a completely free way to stream your local broadcast channels (though donations are encouraged). It’s a godsend for football fans, especially during the NFL playoffs. There’s one catch. The service is only available in a handful of cities at the moment: New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Denver, Boston, and Dallas. If you happen to be in one of those areas, it’s worth trying.

Saints vs. Eagles: Why it matters

Earlier this week, Saints coach Sean Payton walked into his team’s locker room with four security guards and a wheelbarrow filled with $200,000 of cash and the Lombardi trophy the team earned from winning the Super Bowl during the 2009 season. “Y’all want this?” he asked. “Win three fucking games.” Apparently, the team found that stunt a hoot, but the Saints are certainly not a joke. Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks of his generation—and, honestly, one of the best in history—and the team’s running back duo of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram are a good 1-2 punch. The Saints might be the best team in the entire league, and considering they’re eight-point favorites on Sunday, just about everybody knows it.
