Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles: Behind enemy lines

Share

Including playoffs, 10-8 vs. NFC South, 22-12 vs. rest of National Football League dating back to '15... 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. This might be hard as Brandon Graham is still dealing with a high ankle injury that is said to still be keeping him ginger while putting weight on it. Nick Foles hasn't proved much of anything in his starts since the loss of Carson Wentz, except that he can score when the defense sets him up. The weather in Philadelphia this Saturday is predicted to be in the low 30s. A closing defensive touchdown gave the Eagles a 19-10 victory. Every team that gained a bye week during the regular season will enter the fray, all hoping to use their home fields as a springboard to the conference championship games. Philly hosts the victor next Sunday evening at Lincoln Financial Field.

With no Carson Wentz at QB for the Philadelphia Eagles, the Atlanta Falcons opened as 3-point favorites. His outdoor stadium record is 34-29.

The Falcons come into Philadelphia riding high after defeating the Los Angeles Rams last week in the playoff opener. Foles started out shaky but led two impressive, long second-half drives as the Eagles' offensive line asserted its will against a Falcons defense that looked gassed late in the game. There were signs placed all over the building drilling home that this team was being undervalued and overlooked, according to linebacker Nigel Bradham. Backup Nick Foles has been a starter in the playoffs before and has proven at times to be a good NFL Quarterback, but make no mistake about it, he is not Carson Wentz. The key for the Eagles is to make sure that their third-down plays are third and five or less because the Falcons have had trouble in some games getting off the field on third down.

Tunisian government hoping days of protests are subsiding
The unemployment rate at the end of past year amounted to more than 15 percent, the annual inflation rate was 6.4 percent. This has caused prices and taxes to rise across a range of essential goods and services, like fuel, cars and internet use.

Jay Ajayi rallied after fumbling his first carry of the game. First, Ajayi must be the focal point. The Dolphins won that game 20-17.

And so cornerback Jalen Mills' message to his teammates in the tunnel right before they took the field against the Atlanta Falcons was no surprise.

Philadelphia started the quarter with the ball.

Saturday begins our march to the Super Bowl. This team was dominant throughout most of the year, blowing out teams, running the ball, and shutting opposing offenses down. The players feel like they have been disrespected all year.

The Eagles have four running backs who have made major contributions at some point in the year. The fact that they were unable to punch the ball in on that fourth-quarter drive despite making it down to the 5-yard line almost cost them, but the defense bailed them out. But Eagles fans are feeling anything but secure going into the game.
