Saints LG Andrus Peat Playing Through Painful Hand Injury
New Orleans Saints starting left guard Andrus Peat struggled at times during the team's 20-14 playoff win yesterday over the Philadelphia Eagles.
Dealing with Philly's stout defensive line is difficult enough, but doing it two weeks after breaking your hand makes it even harder.
In the moment, many Saints fans were upset with Peat when he committed costly penalties and struggled in protection.
No fans should question his toughness, as he played every offensive snap with a cast on his hand and battling "serious pain".
The entire New Orleans starting offensive line played every snap in a game yesterday for the first time in over 60 days.
They'll need to do so again to improve the Saints chances of getting to the Super Bowl.
New Orleans (14-3) hosts the Los Angeles Rams (14-3) this Sunday afternoon at 2:00.
Los Angeles' best player is defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who leads a vaunted Rams D-Line.
