07:14 PM ET 11.03 | At 2-5 the Saints are mired in one of their worst seasons in years. With the offseason bounty scandal hanging over them, their coach suspended for the year and arguably the league's worst defense it looks like a lost year for New Orleans. But all that hasn't stopped Drew Brees from piling up numbers yet again. Eagles defensive coordinator Todd Bowles expects to see the New Orleans in full attack mode Monday night. "Like I said before, they're an attack team. They attack you with the running backs, the tight ends, and the wide receivers. You got to have a good overall game plan against them, and you have to hope that [Brees] is off a little bit. You have to hope they are a little bit worn down. He's been tough for years now. It's not just this game. He's been tough against everybody. They are the number one pass offense in the league for a reason."
