Offensive Impact: Nick Foles gets the job done vs. Falcons

14 January 2018

"I am very confident in that, just by the way the guys have handled their business the last two weeks, the way we practiced last week and the way we prepared this week", he said.

This is the biggest key to the Eagles success throughout the playoffs.

Injury report: Falcons - No players listed.

Ryan ended up lofting the ball toward Jones, but Mills was there to defend the 6-foot-3 wideout. The final record was a 14-2 record, and 2nd best in the NFC, behind the mighty Minnesota Vikings that year.

Now, the Falcons are coming off an outstanding showing against the Los Angeles Rams, who featured the highest-scoring offense in the National Football League this past season.

The Falcons also possess more postseason experience than the Birds. So needless, to say, there was anxiety on the Atlanta end, as well as excitement. Find out with coverage starting at 1pm and a 1:35pm kick-off. The total has gone under in nine of the Falcons' last 12 games against the Eagles. Jamal Anderson, who had a monster year, got the drive rolling and then Chris Chandler found Terance Mathis for a big pass to put it at first and goal. And, lest I forget, Old Man Winter is preparing a nice welcome to the southern birds, and weather is an issue for a dome team like the Atlanta Falcons. They are out to prove the doubters wrong, and as Philadelphian fans I don't believe we would have it any other way. The Dome was going bonkers. On a third down at the six-yard line, Fletcher Cox was about to sack Ryan before Ryan flicked the ball to Devonta Freeman at the last second.

Instead the tide turned a bit after Chandler got picked by Junior Bryant after a deflection in Atlanta's territory.

The Eagles frankly were lucky to only be trailing 10-9 at halftime.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp not angry about Philippe Coutinho's departure
It is not that they say "You've got this but on the other hand we've done this and this and so you can not spend". Jurgen Klopp maintains that the club won't immediately look to find a player that directly replaces Coutinho .

The offense got off to a bad start. But Foles himself isn't anxious in the least about going up against Atlanta's Cover 3 defense. Sarkisian was hired after Kyle Shanahan went to San Francisco to be their head coach. I thought that as this one went down that extended some drives and some long ones defensively.

That pretty much sums up the company line from inside the team's NovaCare Complex. The Falcons drove into the red zone but sputtered, leaving Andersen to kick another FG to make it 20-10.

At the time of publication, 55 percent of the public was laying the points and taking the Falcons.

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor ran 21 yards on an inside counter on third-and-3 to the 3. We have to go out there and take when we know is ours.

There are signs, however, that the Falcons are waking up at the right time. Thankfully, the 49ers had to start at their own two. He wasn't accountable for any touchdowns or interceptions this game.

All the Eagles had to do was make sure they were able to run the ball for a first down, setting up a knee down on the ground to run out the clock. "If the offense doesn't get enough points, we can't do it without them, but we like having the game in our hands". And we all know what happened there.

Only five times since the AFL-NFL merger in 1966 has a home team ever been an underdog in the divisional playoff round, and before this week all five were No. 2 seeds. The Falcons were that close, but they left the field with only the memory of how close.
