As the NFC’s No.1 seed with the best record in the league, the New Orleans Saints will have the easiest path to Super Bowl LIII. They will host the lowest remaining seed that survives Wild-Card Weekend in the second round of the 2019 NFL Playoffs.

The Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles are all in play to be New Orleans’ opponent in their first postseason game. If the Chicago Bears win Sunday, they’ll go on to face the Los Angeles Rams in the second round.

Philadelphia can guarantee themselves a matchup with New Orleans by beating Chicago in the first round. The Eagles snuck into the postseason as the NFC’s No.6 seed by securing the second wild-card spot in Week 17.

If the Bears beat the Eagles, and they are favored to do so, it’ll be the Cowboys or Seahawks that play in the Superdome in the divisional playoffs. Dallas hosts Seattle Saturday night as a small favorite.

Seattle is the only potential opponent that New Orleans didn’t play in the regular season.

The Saints routed the Eagles at home 48-7 in Week 10, though it would be a different Philadelphia team visiting New Orleans in the playoffs. Nick Foles has taken over for the injured Carson Wentz, who was picked off three times by the Saints. Foles has led the Eagles to three straight wins, and the reigning Super Bowl MVP ended the season with consecutive triple-digit passer ratings.

Two weeks after the Saints beat the Eagles, they were upset on the road by the Cowboys. Dallas stifled New Orleans’ offense in a 13-10 victory. Drew Brees had arguably his worst game of the season with 127 passing yards, one touchdown and an interception.

The Cowboys went 3-5 on the road. The Saints were 6-1 at home before Brees sat in the season finale.

New Orleans lost on the road to Seattle in the 2014 Divisional Playoffs.

The Saints defeated the Los Angeles Rams at home 45-35 in Week 9. New Orleans could potentially host L.A. in a rematch in the NFC Championship Game.
