The Falcons are 0-2 in Philadelphia in the playoffs and 1-0 at home.

The Eagles (13-3) are the first No. 1 seed to be an underdog in their opening playoff game.

STOPPING JULIO: The Eagles had some success against Julio Jones in their win previous year, keeping him out of the end zone but allowing 10 catches for 135 yards. Let's not count out the Pittsburgh defense, however, as it has surrendered just 312 yards per game in Heinz Field this season.

And he comes into Saturday's game feeling fresh. "Both teams like to run it, and both teams are good defending the run". Fletcher Cox is a key to this game.

"First thing like always, you can see the discipline of the way that the players are playing", Quinn said. And it's not necessarily that Atlanta blew the Rams out of the water, but they did dominate them in all three phases of the game. The Falcons also have a good running game with running back Devonta Freeman.

"I haven't executed as well as I wanted to the past couple of weeks, but I go out there and play and having this time to self-scout, go through practice, you realize just go out there and play", Foles said. They are going to challenge our receivers and that's what you're seeing on tape.

This perception, based mainly on the belief that next to no one believes that the team has a snowball's chance in hell of winning with quarterback Nick Foles at the helm, has fans (and a few players) smarting a little. He is also just the fifth quarterback since 1999 to record a touchdown pass and reception in the same game. The Patriots will probably circle the wagons successfully - they're favored by 13. "They play with a lot of confidence". Every drive ended in a punt except for the one where there was an interception. This will be a homecoming game for Ryan as he grew up 32 miles from Philadelphia. More important, no snowstorm has been predicted.

While conventional wisdom may say to pick the team that was in the Super Bowl past year and has the better quarterback, there's something about the matchup that makes me believe in Philadelphia-maybe it's because I've spent time in National Football League locker rooms and know what it's like to feel disrespected.

Saturday begins our march to the Super Bowl. He was around for only about half of the regular season. This alone could give the Eagles an advantage. However, this team has struggled with adversity all year.
