The Eagles soar into the NFC Championship Game

The Eagles soar into the NFC Championship Game

Now they are the number one seed and are underdogs at home just because they lost Carson Wentz. This can only help this team, a team that has fought for every game they played and for every ounce of respect they have earned. However, the defense did not fare well against a Giants team that ended with a 3-13 record. However, this team has struggled with adversity all year. Doug Peterson has posted this in the locker room and multiple players have gone public about this topic. My pick: Falcons 20, Eagles 13.

They nullified the Rams passing game, with star running-back Todd Gurley forced to make the most of his carries, as his ineffectiveness in the receiving game meant the league's highest-scoring team could only manage one touchdown against the Falcons.

"Man, just stay calm", said defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, who was a force all day. "Nick, this is, what, his fourth game?"

In 2013, Nick Foles had a banner year throwing 27 TDs and 2 INTs, but sadly that was at the apex of his National Football League career. So with all that said, the Eagles best bet is to rely on something they know works and something they have great depth at. Atlanta has playoff experience and a loaded offense, while Nick Foles has been unimpressive in his final two games of the season.

CDC Boots Nuke Session in Favor of Flu
Even if the vaccine is not as effective for the current strain of the flu, Echols said people should still get it as a precaution. The CDC said this is the first time in 13 years every state in the continental U.S.is being hit with widespread flu.

"Same guys. My mentality hasn't changed", Ajayi said. In the Eagles' 26-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints back in 2013, Foles completed 69 percent of his passes and threw two touchdown passes and left the game with the lead before Saints quarterback Drew Brees drove his team to the game-winning field goal. The kick capped a third quarter dominated by both defenses. Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers have had a soap opera-like season, but they are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five games at this stage of the playoffs. They are playing at home on two weeks rest, while the Falcons have just under a week and need to travel across the country to play. Jim Swartz, Philadelphia's defensive coordinator released a statement earlier this week saying that "The fans are going to mean an bad lot this week". "When I play my best and I'm most comfortable, I just go out there and play".

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

The guess here is that the Eagles defense keeps the Falcons at bay for most of the game, but that Atlanta breaks through in the fourth quarter. "There's a lot on the line, we're aware of that, but at the same time you can't put too much pressure on yourself". That figured to catch up to them at some point, and it certainly did in Saturday's NFC divisional playoff matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles recovered the fumble.
