Nick Foles used Eagles bye week to go back to basics

"There's enough substance behind his career that merits having confidence", Reich said, "And knowing, I've seen the best quarterbacks in the world have a bad game or two in a row". Home teams are in all caps.

An impressive win at the LA Rams on wildcard weekend has opened up the route back to the big show for Atlanta, a year after that heartbreaking loss in Super Bowl LI.

But the results from last weekend are the topper.

Still, let's give Tennessee tremendous credit for how it rallied in Kansas City. And it's not necessarily that Atlanta blew the Rams out of the water, but they did dominate them in all three phases of the game. By that I mean, quarterbacks aside, the Eagles and Vikings have better rosters than the Falcons and Saints, respectively, but the Falcons and Saints have significant advantages at quarterback.

That's because, after quarterback Nick Foles' terrible performance during the last two regular season games, I'm not exactly brimming with optimism and am wary of spreading skepticism, in case it's contagious. "It's just as simple as that", Foles said, via ESPN.

Much has been made about the Philadelphia Eagles' historic underdog status as a one seed against a six seed.

The advisers also said one Trump meal in Chicago consisted of two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish sandwiches and a chocolate milkshake. The president gets little physical exercise and uses a cart during his frequent golf outings.

The key to the Falcons' recent success has come on the defensive side of the ball.

Ben Roethlisberger threw five picks the last time he played the Jaguars. Ryan will have another chance to get back into the Super Bowl but it would be a harder path this year.

"It just kind of became my persona on the field, where I'm kind of a nice guy off the field, real chill".

Here comes Jacksonville, following an offensive stinker in beating outmanned Buffalo. This week, they play an Eagles team that has not gotten much respect recently.

"Sometimes it's a player who can have such good change of direction, they can make you miss". The sixth-seeded Falcons are 3-point favorites. Agholor was plagued by dropped passes in 2016, along with many other Eagles' wide receivers, and he reached a big low point when he finished the 2016 matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks with zero receptions for zero yards and dropped a pass that looked like it would've been a 40-yard reception for a touchdown. Logically they would really have to up their game if they were to carry on this journey to the NFC Championship Game. Pittsburgh's offense will look to make a statement early and often. "The one nice part is there will be a lot of familiar faces, friendly faces after the game, which is always nice". Agholor, meanwhile, gained 752 yards while operating out of the slot - the third-most yards in the NFL. The Falcons won the first playoff matchup between these two teams, 14-13, and they are 1-2 all-time in the postseason against the Eagles. Why, you ask? Because Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Devonta Freeman and the rest of the Falcon offense are very capable of scoring over 30 points. That doesn't bode well for the Eagles, who own the best and deepest defensive lines in the league. Not only are the Vikings 7-1 at home this season, but Super Bowl LII will be played in Minnesota.
