    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints got two touchdown passes from Drew Brees New Orleans Saints Alize Mack Jersey , two interceptions by Marcus Lattimore, and rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 20-14 Sunday to advance to the NFC championship game.Using a dominant ball-control offense after a horrendous start, Brees took the Saints (14-3) on scoring drives of 92, 79 and 67 yards. And a few gambles paid off to assure New Orleans will host the Rams (13-4) next Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl.Los Angeles, which fell 45-35 at the Superdome in November, will try again next week, with the winner taking on either Kansas City or New England in the Super Bowl in Atlanta. The Saints’ win finished off a sweep of the divisional round by teams coming off byes.Wil Lutz added two field goals for the Saints, who last got this far in 2009, when they won the Super Bowl.Philadelphia (10-8) will not repeat as NFL champion; no team has done so since the 2004 Patriots.This was really two games in one. Philly scored on its first two drives as the Saints could do virtually nothing right.After that opening period, it was all New Orleans, yet the resilient Eagles kept it close enough that when Lutz missed a 52-yard field goal with 2:58 remaining, they were only one-score behind.Nick Foles, the hero of last year’s Super Bowl run, got them in position for yet another late winning score — just like last week at Chicago and last February against New England for the championship.Then Alshon Jeffery couldn’t handle a second-down pass from the Saints 27 and Lattimore grabbed his second interception to clinch the win.PATRIOTS 41 Womens Alize Mack 2019 Jersey , CHARGERS 28FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Sony Michel ran for 129 yards and had three touchdowns and New England beat Los Angeles in the divisional playoffs to earn its eighth straight trip to the AFC championship game.New England (12-5) will play at Kansas City in next week’s AFC title game. The Patriots beat the Chiefs 43-40 in Foxborough in Week 6. The Patriots finished 9-0 at home this season.It is the 13th conference championship game appearance by the Patriots during the Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era.The Chargers (13-5) haven’t reached the AFC title game since the 2007 season.Philip Rivers finished 25 of 51 for 331 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. He is 0-5 in games played in Foxborough, including 0-3 in the postseason.Brady finished 34 of 44 for 343 yards and a touchdown. He improves to 8-0 as a starter against Rivers, who drops to 1-8 against New England all-time.James White tied Darren Sproles‘ NFL postseason record with 15 catches, totaling 97 yards.New England scored on its first four possessions of the game to build a 35-7 halftime lead.Julian Edelman had nine catches for 151 yards. Saints punter Thomas Morstead isn’t about to complain about what could be a record lack of opportunities to perform this season. He’s having fun watching from the sidelines as Drew Brees and Co. threaten to score the most points in a season in NFL history.Morstead says the main challenge is staying sharp and ready. And because he serves as his own agent, he’s also keenly aware he’s getting paid more per punt, which only increases pressure to strike the ball with the right power and precision whenever New Orleans does need him to come through.“You sharpen your sword by continually being tested, and when you don’t get opportunities to get tested, it’s hard to keep your sword sharp,” says Morstead, who has punted just 24 times in 11 games. The record for fewest punts in a season is 34 by 1990 the Houston Oilers, known for their prolific run-and-shoot offense.Morstead calls punting so infrequently “a major challenge.”“I’m just always staying ready, being patient Cheap Alize Mack Youth Jersey ,” Morstead says. “I’m not rooting to punt a lot. It’s good that we’re scoring and it’s been a lot of fun to be a part of this team.”This past offseason, Morstead signed a five-year extension worth about $20 million, with $9 million guaranteed. If he plays out the entire contract, it’ll average about $4 million per season. So if the Saints wind up punting a record-low 33 times, he’ll have been paid about $121,000 per punt this season.For the first time in his career, Morstead has gone two entire games in the same season without punting — and that was just in the first nine games. In the first of those games, against Washington in Week 5, Morstead’s personal kicking coach, Jamie Kohl, had traveled to New Orleans from Iowa to see the game.Twice this season, Morstead has “lost” punting opportunities when third-string quarterback Taysom Hill, a regular on special teams, converted fakes.In his previous nine NFL seasons combined Youth Josh LeRibeus Jersey , Morstead went a total of three games without punting.Last Sunday against Philadelphia, he had not punted in the equivalent of more than six quarters when he nailed a 50-yarder that landed on the sideline for no return in the middle of the second quarter. His only other punt covered 49 yards and the Eagles lost 2 yards on the return, so Morstead finished with an elite 50.5-yard net punting average for the game.“We give him a hard time,” coach Sean Payton says of the good-natured ribbing Morstead sometimes gets for his lack of action. “I will say this: last week (against the Eagles), he hit two that were huge.”LOOKING BACKThe shootout Monday in Los Angeles stirred memories for Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase.He watched the telecast of the Rams’ 54-51 victory over Kansas City, and was asked the following day if he had ever seen a team score 50 points and lose.“Close,” Gase said slyly. “I saw Dallas score 48 and lose.”Against?“Against somebody,” Gase said.Against Denver in 2013 — when Peyton Manning was the Broncos’ quarterback, and Gase was their offensive coordinator. Because Gase pretended to be fuzzy on the details, someone tried to jog his memory.How many did Denver score in that game? “I don’t know — 51?” Gase said.SOCIAL JUSTICE GRANTSThe Philadelphia Eagles‘ Social Justice Fund has distributed its first grants totaling $190,000 toPhiladelphia-area nonprofit organizations: Philadelphia Community Bail Fund (PCBF); Philadelphia Opportunities Industrialization Center (OIC); Police Athletic League of Philadelphia (PAL); and the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.Established early this year, the Eagles Social Justice Fund was formed to provide grants to organizations that work to reduce barriers to equal opportunity. The focus is on education; community and police relations; improving the criminal justice system; and other initiatives targeting poverty, racial equality, and workforce development in the greater-Philadelphia area.The Eagles Social Justice Leadership Council White Bobby Hebert Jersey , comprised of a collection of players and club executives, works to identify potential grant recipients and secure contributions to the fund. The fund has amassed nearly $500,000 in donations to date; additional grants will be announced in December.Players on the council include Nelson Agholor, Derek Barnett, Michael Bennett, Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long, and Rodney McLeod.“It’s a large responsibility because our teammates care about so many things. At the end of the day, we want to make sure as a team, a collective whole, we’re making a positive difference in this world,” Agholor says. “We look at the different areas in terms of reform, education, and re-entry — when people are coming back from jail and being back in everyday life. You have to find ways to give people the best advantage to live life.”The fund will provide the United Way with a grant of $40 Bobby Hebert Jersey 2019 ,000 to support early grade literacy reading programs in Camden, New Jersey.The $50,000 grant to the PAL will help build a 20th recreational center in Philadelphia.PCFB, which received a $50,000 grant, works to provide empowering individualized support to the people it posts bail for by offering transportation services and providing resources for food and housing needs.And OIC, which received a $50,000 grant, is dedicated to the elimination of poverty, unemployment, and illiteracy to ensure a meaningful quality of life for families and individuals within Philadelphia.
