PHILADELPHIA – Stay tuned to ESPN today as you count down to the kickoff between the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles at 8:10 p.m. ET.

The following features are planned for Saturday’s edition of “Sunday NFL Countdown,” beginning at 11 a.m. ET:

Predator Defense: After a slow start, the Eagles have become one of the most consistent defenses in the NFL. Sal Paolantonio reports on the Eagles' “Predator” defense and how it keyed the team’s run to the NFC East title.

Westlake High: Quarterbacks Drew Brees and Nick Foles are vastly different types of quarterbacks but they have one major thing in common: they both hail from Westlake High School in Austin, Texas. Longhorn Network’s Kaylee Hartung will make her Countdown debut with a report from Austin that takes a closer look at the high school careers of these two quarterbacks.

Jaws Film Room: Ron Jaworski joins the show from the Film Room to break down the differences in Drew Brees’ performance outdoors in cold weather versus at home in the Superdome.

Then at 6:30 p.m. ET, Saturday’s edition of “NFL Matchup” will include the following features:

Coaches Clicker -- Sack vs. the Eagles: Merril Hoge shows how the Eagles' offensive line struggles against regular defensive line stunts.

Trent Cole Sack vs. the Bears: Using a play featuring a designed blitz by linebacker Trent Cole against the Bears in Week 16, Hoge explains how a similar play will unsettle the explosive Saints offense and quarterback Drew Brees.

Here’s a full rundown of ESPN’s wild-card weekend TV programming.
