Falcons final offensive play did not surprise Eagles defense

Falcons final offensive play did not surprise Eagles defense

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles' defence held firm late in the game as they booked their place in the NFC Championship game after beating last season's Super Bowl finalists the Atlanta Falcons 15-10. Atlanta did everything possible to make it easy on the Eagles, and despite Julio Jones doing just about everything he could, the Eagles handled it comfortably. Neither came down with the football.

But, the Falcons failed to score. "You know what? I will gladly take two more ugly wins and then we can have a attractive parade". Jones finished with nine catches for 101 yards on 16 targets while Sanu had three receptions for 50 yards on five targets. "I'm very proud of everyone on the team". I thought we dealt with a lot throughout the year. "Often times you may get it man-to-man in those scenarios".

Ryan is 32, and by virtually any measure he's crafting a Hall of Fame career.

The 2016 league MVP hadn't touched that form most of the season, but he and the Falcons' passing game took a step backward from the form reached in last week's wild-card victory over the Los Angeles Rams. On their first possession, Foles lofted a pass to Torrey Smith who drew a pass interference call, to put the Eagles in business at the Atlanta 33 and to set off frenzied cheers. But he's missing that one element that validates any quarterback's case for Canton: a championship ring.

The much-maligned Nick Foles did enough to win, with a major assist from the Eagles' defense. He called Sprint Right Pylon instead.

Mills said he had been alerted to what Atlanta would do on the fourth-down play before the snap by safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod. They alerted the rest of defenders, including Mills, who said he knew Jones was coming his way. It would leave Jones as the only viable receiver; after all, Hooper wasn't involved. Then, with the wind in the next quarter, the Eagles kept the Falcons so off-balance Atlanta took two timeouts in three plays.

Dakar Rally 2018: Stage 7
Spain's Carlos Sainz took the overall lead in the Dakar Rally by winning Saturday's seventh stage from La Paz to Uyuni in Bolivia. In the motorbike category, Joan Barreda dominated, flying on his Honda through every checkpoint.

"That killed me", Ajayi said of the miscue, adding that "I didn't think I played well. And it's the underdog mask and I wasn't going to field any questions but I decided I would field them in the dog mask". And while the Eagles' only touchdown came on a LeGarrette Blount one-yard run, that was the cherry on top of a 14-play, 86 yard first-quarter drive that relied mostly on the running game and in the process allowed Foles to get comfortable.

Foles outplayed Ryan, completing 23 of 30 passes for 246 yards. We will find out who the Eagles will go up against on Sunday, Jan. 14th when the Saints visit Minnesota.

It was a given that the Falcons were going to pack the box against the Eagles' offense, and pack it they did. "He's got to be one of the most resilient players I've been around".

"One step closer to Super Bow lLII", Conway tweeted out. Two yards stood between their dream season continuing to the NFC title game or screeching to a halt. And when you don't get that result, it's hard.

The Eagles lost Carson Wentz, Jason Peters, Darren Sproles and Jordan Hicks - arguably four of the most important players on the team.

Besides, next year is a different year.
