The New Orleans Saints will be traveling to Philadelphia this Sunday, but luckily, they won't be facing frigid temperatures like last week in Cleveland.

The Saints enter the game tomorrow 6-9 this season following a 17-10 victory against the Browns in a game that featured a wind chill of -22 degrees at kick-off. If the Saints win their final two games they could make the playoffs, however, they will also need the Buccaneers to lose their final two games to make that a reality.

The injury bug has once again been a problem for the Saints this season. Saints' fans woke up to a huge surprise with a starter nobody expected to be on the injury report this week. Alvin Kamara is listed as having a quadricep injury and he didn't practice yesterday.

Saints insider Nick Underhill took to Twitter to let us know that it's nothing to be worried about:
