NFC Divisional Round: Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles

NFC Divisional Round: Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles

"When we're successful, the running back room is successful because we're helping to keep the tempo of the game, keep the defense off the field, making big plays".

Wentz performed so well that he ended the year as the NFL's leader in touchdown passes, even though he missed the team's final three games. The number one seed is projected to lose to the sixth seed.

Since the Eagles lost Carson Wentz to an ACL tear, their odds of winning have gone down. Nick Foles struggled in his three starts, completing 54% of his passes while producing a 77.7 passer rating. That's bad. Foles also is averaging less than five yards per pass attempt this season - a full yard per pass attempt less than Joe Flacco, who was last in the league in that category this season. "I don't like it, but I think it's a good motivator".

The suspect Eagles have a suspect quarterback under helm now. For as much optimism as the players and home media want to shroud it with, I tend to agree with Vegas.

The Eagles' defense has been nothing short of awesome this year but it's when they have a lead, they are most effective.

Lu said countries should work to defuse tensions and promote dialogue, rather than isolating Pyongyang. Responding to such concerns on Thursday, Brian Hook, the director of policy planning within the U.S.

Foles and the coaching staff went back and sifted through film spanning his entire career - including his 27-touchdown, two-interception season in 2013 under Chip Kelly - looking for answers. Any quarterback could flourish in Kelly's system. The Falcons are a different, one might say more battled-tested team this time around. If the Falcons get constant pressure on Foles and get him out of the pocket, the Falcons will win.

The Eagles defensive line has played great this season, as you can see. It goes well beyond the quarterback (Matt Ryan). Last week, the Falcons had to try to contain Aaron Donald. Eagles Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, Defensive End Brandon Graham, and Cornerback Jalen Mills, and Halapoulivaati Vaitai were all participating in full practice for Philadelphia on Thursday. The players behind them may be suspect, most notably the secondary. Pittsburgh are not the same defensively without Ryan Shazier and with Antonio Brown carrying a calf injury - will he be able to produce like he did throughout the season?

Ben Roethlisberger threw five picks the last time he played the Jaguars. "Playing as long as I have, I understand regardless of where we play you have to be at your best every week".

This is the first time the Falcons and Eagles have met in the playoffs since following the 2004 season. Two of those teams tried to play and win without our starting QB in the playoffs. I understand how these Eagles are indignant that they're not favored, despite the #1 seed in the NFC.
