Falcons vs. Eagles: Highlights, game tracker from Divisional Round

Falcons vs. Eagles: Highlights, game tracker from Divisional Round

Very penetrating type defense and the linebackers have great speed.

"I think having gone through these situations, understanding what it's like, the atmosphere, those kinds of things, knowing that it's going to be tough, all those things kind of carry forward", Ryan told reporters, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have struggled in their three games without quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a torn ACL in Week 14 and was placed on injured reserve. After the games on the weekend, the Eagles also discovered who their opponent will be for their divisional round match-up on Saturday.

"It's pretty low-key regardless", Ryan said. "They've played extremely well". They are going to challenge our receivers and that's what you're seeing on tape.

Ajayi, who began the season with the Miami Dolphins, ran for 130 yards against the Falcons two weeks before he joined the Eagles. "So wherever we're at, I try to slide in and out under the radar". Philadelphia will slow Atlanta's ground game, create pressure on Matt Ryan up the middle and force the Falcons into some third-and-long situations, where secondary options like Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper won't be quite as effective as they otherwise would be. Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby are in good shape and not expected to miss any playing time, although Mills is listed with an ankle injury despite putting in full practices. "They are a little bit different team as well".

K Matt Bryant - Bryant nailed four field goals in the Falcons' win over the Rams in the NFC Wild Card game.

Ryan said he and offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian's relationship has improved as the season progressed.

He contends that their bond and relationship has grown stronger late in the season. "We still have to go to work the next day", Pederson said.

Time management problems, always an issue with head coach Andy Reid, resurfaced as the Chiefs, trailing by two touchdowns, needed nine minutes and seven seconds to get into the end zone to force a one-possession game with just 1:13 to play. This means we will probably see a lot of screen passes and quick hits to Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman coming out of the backfield. It was his lowest total since his rookie season (16) in 2008.

Sarkisian knows the Falcons have a major challenge on offense.

There's a counter-narrative emerging, sort of, that suggests the Falcons have become a defense-first operation.

Sarkisian was fine with the 39-30 run-to-pass split against the Rams.

Foles will need to lean on his running game. "We have to continue to find ways to be creative, but stick to our identity".

The divisional round of the National Football League playoffs kicks off with the Atlanta Falcons visiting the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.

In an odd turn of events the Falcons are 2.5-point favorites according to OddShark.com.

Foles has already proven he can sling it, evidenced by the 27 touchdowns against two interceptions he threw in 2013 when Chip Kelly was the Eagles' coach.
