After Studying Film, Eagles Want Nick Foles To Be Aggressive

The Falcons (11-6 SU, 8-9 ATS) were 6.5-point underdogs last Saturday night at the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams and won 26-13 in easily one of the team's best efforts of the season. "I mean, he's a big reason why we're 13-3 and where we are today".

Atlanta averaged 22.1 points per game, down from 33.8 last season. "Let's go play. Let's go execute the offense", Pederson said at his press conference on Tuesday. I'm more fired up than my co-workers for this game, and I'm an "outsider" who just joined the fanbase. 'Nuff said. Give me the under.

But the celebration nearly didn't happen.

Tackle Lane Johnson boycotted the media a month ago when he sensed a perception change surrounding the Eagles when Wentz got hurt.

"We're going to need our room (running backs) to produce".

Coverage of Saturday's game between the Eagles and Falcons takes place on NBC beginning at 4:35 pm ET from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.

"The only time they quit is when they took their helmets off and they were walking off the field", Humphrey said.

With about eight minutes left in regulation, the Falcons recovered a fumble on their own 13-yard line.

"You've got every team fighting to play for the next week", Patriots safety Devin McCourty says. But all that effort would've come to a sour end had the Falcons not pulled off the best online sportsbook upset this past weekend. He was 18 of 33 for 267 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The defensive line is an elite unit that has been great against the run at home this season, allowing just 3.3 yards per carry.


Offensively, the Eagles are averaging 28.6 points and 365.8 total yards (233.6 in passing and 132.2 in rushing) per game.

Philadelphia is No. 1 against the run, is at home and has had an extra week of rest.

He missed it and the comeback was complete.

This will be Pederson's first playoff game as a head coach. "Philadelphia wasn't the first team to experience that with Atlanta".

- Since the start of week 15, the Eagles are averaging 17.7 points and 258.9 yards of offense per game, which ranks as the 12th- and fourth-worst, respectively, in the National Football League over that time. New Orleans held off the Carolina Panthers for the third time this season on Sunday, winning 31-26. They did it quite a few times.

What's going to help Foles stay on his feet and have time to find receivers downfield is consistency in the running game.

And jubilant Falcons fans stormed the field and tore down the goal posts. "This city has always longed for something".

"We're not here just to get here", Ryan said. But we were here, in Atlanta. The Eagles were 5-3 ATS at home this season. He even played pretty well in a playoff loss to the Saints. Tight end Rob Gronkowski has never looked fitter this late in a season and will cause the Titans defence a lot of headaches. "Just being there, being around the people". "They are playing a little bit more man coverage". Even with many other talented pieces on offense, Jeffery needs to be the skill player who sets the tone early.
