It has been quite a holiday season for the New Orleans Saints. "We traveled on Christmas Day, we practice on New Year's Day and if things go the way I hope they will, we'll still be at it heading toward Mardi Gras," Saint defensive lineman Jim Wilks said. The Saints (12-4) will play the Philadelphia Eagles (11-5) today, seeking their first postseason victory after three failures.

Phoenix Cardinal owner Bill Bidwill, whose team has not had a winning record since 1984, said Coach Joe Bugel and General Manager Larry Wilson will be retained. Bugel, who had been in the last year of a four-year contract, has a 13-35 record in three seasons. His last two teams have finished 4-12 and fallen off in the second half of the season, losing eight in a row to end 1991 and six of seven to finish 1992. But Bugel, 52, never thought he would be fired.
