NFL playoff teams: Success at home and on the field
New Orleans Saints (6 Seed--NFC): Eliminated
The Saints are traveling to Philadelphia this weekend to face the Eagles. While the weather is warmer in the Crescent City, New Orleans homebuyers and homeowners may wish they were traveling to Philadelphia as well. Mortgage rates are lower, home prices are higher, more residents own homes, and ticket prices are cheaper in the City of Brotherly Love. But would Saints fans trade all of that for a playoff win? I bet they might.
