Nick Foles could have stood there and given all his doubters a big, giant, "TOLD YOU SO". He'll next square off with the victor of the other NFC Divisional Round matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings.

It's the first time in National Football League playoff history that a number one seed is an underdog in its first playoff game.

Fans watching the game have been complaining about the officials - Eagles and Falcons fans alike. We never doubted him.

Julio Jones caught nine passes for 101 yards, but could grab the key one on 4th and Goal from Ryan in the final minute. A year ago, the Falcons' season ended in overtime of the Super Bowl.

The Falcons (10-6) produced one of their best performances of the season during their 26-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams in a wild card game last week. "It was hard for us not to hear it". "Often times you may get it man-to-man in those scenarios".

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles managed the game effectively by completing 23 of 30 passes for 246 yards.

"Listen, it doesn't really matter what you guys talk about because that locker room is united and I'll go to bat for every one of those guys and I'll go to war with every one of those guys in that dressing room". I think that is probably a big difference in this year, where however we have to play to win, we're equipped to do that. In any sport there's going to be criticism. The Eagles have two possibilities of their opponents.

The game started in horrendous fashion for Philadelphia, with running-back Jay Ajayi fumbling the ball on their opening drive. He had been listed on the Falcons' injury report due to a knee issue ahead of both playoff games.

"They have been force-fed the information for two or three weeks and they just stick together and find a way", Pederson said. So we had to make sure that part could really come to life.

Having driven the length of the field in the final minutes, converting one fourth down near midfield that would have had most coaches punting.

JAY TRAIN: Ajayi shook off the fumble and ran well until he inexplicably went to the bench for a long stretch. He finished the game with 54 rushing yards on 15 carries and 98 total scrimmage yards. He did have 44 yards receiving on three catches.

"At the end of the day, I can make those plays", Jones said. "The fumble, can't do that in a big game. I just feel like I could've executed a lot better today", Ajayi said. A lot of the teammates picked up the slack. The key play was a 21-yard run by wide receiver Nelson Agholor on third down that took the Eagles to the Falcons 3. He spent this season as the Bills vice president of player personnel. Let's have Lane Johnson describe what we mean by that.

A first half touchdown from running back LeGarrette Blount and three field goals from rookie kicker Jake Elliott was enough to see the Eagles home on a frigid night at Lincoln Financial Field.

Atlanta's offense went from first in points per game under Kyle Shanahan in 2016 to 15th under Sarkisian in 2017. The win was the Falcons sixth in their past eight games.
