Eagles on home field proving ground against Falcons

Eagles on home field proving ground against Falcons

This alone could give the Eagles an advantage.

The 28-year-old Jones has gashed the Eagles during his career, recording 26 receptions for 428 yards and three touchdowns in four encounters.

"I think having this time to self-scout. you realize, 'Hey, just go out there and play.' Maybe I wasn't doing that as much those games". It will make like hard on Matt Ryan and company, even if the offense struggles with Foles. His outdoor stadium record is 34-29. It's also the first time since 1970 a top seed has been an underdog in the divisional round. The Falcons, who were tasked with facing the league's No. 1 scoring offense in the NFC's Wild Card round, were able to hold their opponent to a meager 16 points. The Eagles have a lot to step up to in order to pull off this last chance for the Super Bowl.

"I feel really good, like, I feel really good", said Ajayi, who has been bothered by knee issues. They're 13-3 and the first seed in the playoffs with a first-round bye! Because they lost superstar quarterback Carson Wentz to a season-ending ACL injury in Week 14 at the L.A. Rams, and backup Nick Foles didn't look sharp in the final two regular-season games.

"I haven't executed as well as I wanted to in the last couple of weeks", Foles said.

The Birds are playing at home, at least, and their defense is quite capable of rising to the occasion and taking some of the pressure off of Foles. He didn't go down at the first point of contact. He'll have to make some swaggery throws if the Eagles are to advance to the NFC Championship.

It's nearly like the Eagles are Rocky, and Atlanta is Ivan Drago. Philadelphia tips and intercepts balls and is generally more impactful.

The Falcons aren't as potent as they were a year ago on offense, either. Imagine those two rivals fighting for a place in the Super Bowl next week.

Eagles fans have good reason to be concerned about this game. While the third-year back was with the Dolphins, Miami went 7-0 whenever he had 24 or more carries. Considering that Goff was in the USA sportsbook MVP discussion this season, there's no doubt that Foles has a tough task ahead of him. If that didn't happen, Philly would not have picked up Jay Ajayi, who is the modern day "beast mode".

"With defenses like this, it's always going through progressions".

Elliott made Eagles history by nailing 61-yard game-winning field goal against the Giants in Week 3. They're missing one guy, right?

But Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he and the rest of the offense have confidence in Foles' ability to lead them against a Falcons defense that was ranked ninth against the run and 12th against the pass.
