Three takeaways from Eagles' win over Falcons — NFC divisional playoffs

Especially against a team that we thought we were better than. The talent is all there for Atlanta. They simply failed to put points on the board, or at least provide the special teams unit with the opportunity to kick a field goal. The Eagles (14-3) will now face either the New Orleans Saints or the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC Championship game Jan. 21 in Philadelphia. "It came down to the last seconds". But Eagles fans are feeling anything but secure going into the game.

Because of that, the Atlanta Falcons are slight favourites to beat the Eagles in the NFC divisional round on Saturday. He ran for more than 200 yards in three of those games. "The fumble, can't do that in a big game".

Perhaps, this offseason, the Falcons will want to add to their young and fast defense.

The top-seeded Eagles embraced their underdog role.

Rather than play down to expectations, they appeared determined to prove the doubters and the oddsmakers wrong-and they did. They have seen the predictions. We had a deep crossing route to Julio going the other way away from where the pressure was coming. The weather will start out relatively mild for a January day in Philly but steadily drop during the course of the game, with temperatures hitting the low 20s (with a wind chill much lower than that) by the fourth quarter. The Falcons punted on six of their nine drives.

Eight different Eagles caught a pass. Corey Clement led everybody with a career-high five catches, and Alshon Jeffery was the leading receiver with 61 yards. The Eagles then put together their best drive, moving 80 yards in 14 plays, yet faltered close to the end zone.

Ryan's final pass, on a fourth-and-goal from the 2, was incomplete as he tried to force it to Jones in the corner of the end zone.

Atlanta got run over all of the first half, allowing Jay Ajayi and the rest of the Eagles offense to average over seven yards per carry.

The 2018 NFL playoffs continue Saturday afternoon with the divisional round and two more postseason games. "We're just going to keep believing in one another and just keep fighting".

His next pass sailed over the tight end Zach Ertz's head.

The Eagles took a 12-10 lead into the final 15 minutes, thanks to 37-yard field goal by Elliot.

A mid-season acquisition by the Eagles, the former Miami Dolphins running back lit up the Falcons on October 15. Over on the Point Total.

The Eagles second-year quarterback was well on his way toward winning the NFL MVP before a torn ACL ended his season prematurely. Christie has commuted the sentence of Lisa Pyatt. There's a lot of back-and-forth. Elliott then hit a 53-yard field goal as time expired in the first half. The Eagles missed the extra point following that score. "When you don't get that result, it's difficult".

Who the Trends Like: Philadelphia and the under. There were too many times that we were a little bit inconsistent.
