Eagles Bring Out 'Underdog Mask' After beating Falcons

Eagles Bring Out 'Underdog Mask' After beating Falcons

Again, Foles was not sharp in the first half, but this throw was so bad it surprised the Falcons defense, and the deflection landed right in Torrey Smith's lap, giving the Eagles a chance to complete one more pass to Alshon Jeffery to get into field goal range, where Jake Elliott nailed a 53-yarder as the first half expired.

"The reason I play this game is to win a championship".

Actually, they've come to thrive on it.

During the wild-card win over the Rams, the Falcons took advantage of some of early miscues by Los Angeles on special teams to take an early lead in that game as well. Focus back on our grind and get ready to compete next week.

"We gonna eat that falcon", said one fan. But Pederson's shift led to a brutish drive that landed the Eagles in the end zone via, you guessed it, a Blount rushing touchdown.

Not unbeatable, necessarily, but definitely unbreakable. "We just believe in one another, we don't care what anybody else says". We believe in anybody lining up back there at quarterback.

The Falcons would drive down the field and cash in a 33-yard field goal from Matt Bryant (Bridge City) to make it 3-0 late in the first quarter. That's just the way this team is wired.

He was able to pop back to his feet, but not in time to keep the ball from sailing over his head and falling incomplete. "You can't ask for nothing better".

Foles made the little plays that were in front of him, designed well to spread the ball around to nine skill players.

Fellow cornerback Ronald Darby was jealous. "And I understand that Carson's a great player. It's like something out of a movie". That in turn led to a punishing, physically dominant eight-minute, 14-play field-goal drive, featuring a third down catch-and-run by Jay Ajayi for 32 yards.

"We just said, 'hey, somebody go out here and make a play, ' " defensive end Brandon Graham said.

Ryan said of the play: "Certainly in those situations you want to go to your best players".

Once inside the red zone, the Falcons normal struggles popped up.

"He did a really nice job executing the game plan how we and how I know Nick can".

Since losing Wentz, Pederson had done his team no favors in his play-calling, surprisingly moving away from the run with Foles under center.

Nick Foles threw for 246 yards and no touchdowns but more importantly, no interceptions.

For the second time in the first half, Atlanta turned the turnover into points. The win sends the Eagles to the NFC Championship Game for the first time since 2009. "I knew he was coming my way".

Why should Saturday's game have been any different? Philadelphia, the NFC East division champions with a 13-and-3 regular season record, were home underdogs in Saturday's Divisional Playoff game - the first time in National Football League history a top-seed has been a home underdog in a Divisional Playoff.

They were headed for this all along. If they stop Atlanta, they advance to the next round of the playoffs.

That much is certain.
