NFL Divisional Playoffs Preview — Falcons @ Eagles

NFL Divisional Playoffs Preview — Falcons @ Eagles

They used that fact as motivation and now it's onto the next one as they continue pursuit of the franchise's first Super Bowl title. "And I'm not going to stop working until we get that done".

Matt Bryant made a 33-yard field goal on the Falcons' first possession.

After having one of his best games of the year last week, Keanu Neal had an atrocious game. Have thoughts on how the Falcons and Eagles are performing?

The reason for the lack of faith in the Eagles was not hard to figure out.

But it wasn't easy as the Eagles had to hang on at the end. Personally as an Eagles fan, at this point I was nervous.

The Eagles social media team used a couple of tweets to remind folks, including the analysts at ESPN, that unanimously picking the Falcons helped to motivate the team (even tagging @OldTakesExposed). Foles and LeGarrette Blount couldn't handle a handoff on the second drive, but the Eagles recovered. Jake Elliott missed the extra point to keep the score at 6-3.

But the Atlanta Falcons won't get a shot at redemption after falling 15-10 to the Philadelphia Eagles. The total is 41, with 53 percent of action currently backing the under.

Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's unit was No. 1 against the run, 17th against the pass and fourth in points allowed.

Follow along as we bring you live updates and analysis from the game from kickoff through the final whistle.

Both teams came out of halftime and went three and out on their opening drive. He was able to walk off the field with trainers, though. But, this drive something else in store for spectators, Foles actually looked pretty good.

The Falcons will visit the Eagles at 4:35 p.m. ET in Philadelphia on Saturday.

You can live stream this Week 10 game between the Falcons and the Eagles online with NBCSports Live. "A lot of guys have been to the Super Bowl, so they can really wrap and embrace the younger guys and bring them along, sure". While they kept the ball moving and helped build confidence for Foles, the biggest benefit was on the clock. They seemed to gain momentum when they forced an Atlanta punt, but a gaffe by special teams gave Atlanta the ball back at the Philly 18.

It's a role he embraced before the game.

The fourth quarter is where it got interesting.

On the ensuing drive, Matt Ryan led the Falcons down the field and nearly connected on a pass to Mohamed Sanu. That was right after Foles had to fall on a fumble the play prior, a fortunate turn of events.

Jones was one of four players with Alabama football roots involved in the Falcons-Eagles game, although none of the others - Falcons defensive lineman Courtney Upshaw (Eufaula, Alabama) and long snapper Josh Harris (Auburn) and Eagles guard Chance Warmack (Alabama) - started or recorded any stats.
