NFL Divisional picks and postseason predictions

Philadelphia Eagles Nick Foles throws a pass over Dallas Cowboys De Marcus Lawrence during the first half of an NFL football game in Philadelphia

- Atlanta are 4-2 in the playoffs since the start of the 2012 season.

"Let's go play. Let's go execute the offense", Coach Doug Pederson said in advance of their NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field. Quarterback Ron Jaworski connected with Harold Carmichael on a 13-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter to take a 6-0 lead.

With a defense that's playing really well, the Eagles should stay in this game. In a league with no flawless teams, they are the closest. Eagles Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, Defensive End Brandon Graham, and Cornerback Jalen Mills, and Halapoulivaati Vaitai were all participating in full practice for Philadelphia on Thursday.

Luckily, they're going up against Nick Foles, who I can't see having much success. "But they still have those same offense of weapons".

"We're not here just to get here", Ryan said. The Rams' offense thrives when it's able to mix-and-match with its pass-and-run game, but the Falcons forced them to beat them through the air. As long as he makes his simple throws and doesn't turn the ball over, this should be a nice, tight game. Eagles tied franchise record with 13 wins. Every drive ended in a punt except for the one where there was an interception. The weather in Philadelphia this Saturday is predicted to be in the low 30s. More important, no snowstorm has been predicted.

Channel 2 Action News, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB Radio are your home for everything Atlanta Falcons.

The Eagles come into the game as an underdog.

Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles will make his second playoff start against the Falcons.

The New England Patriots begin their quest for a third Super Bowl title in four seasons on Saturday when they meet the Tennessee Titans in the National Football League playoffs. Atlanta averaged 364.8 yards per game and allowed 318.4.

Others wanting more optimism are looking at week 15 against the Giants where Foles threw four touchdowns to no interceptions with very few miscues.

CBS Sports ranks the 16 possible remaining Super Bowl LII pairings and concludes that a Falcons-Patriots rematch would be the most compelling.

As McClain reflected back on that first postseason win over the Eagles, he said that 1978 Falcons team does share at least one common trait with this current group of Falcons.

Quarterback Blake Bortles hasn't been at his best for the back half of the season and probably doesn't have the ability to lead his team to such a resounding victory again. This alone could give the Eagles an advantage. Considering that the Rams were averaging close to 30 points per game during the regular season, this is a pretty impressive feat. The Eagles outgained the Falcons, 362-202 behind the play of Donovan McNabb. Julio Jones posted nine receptions and a touchdown while Mohamed Sanu added 75 yards. And he will be under center on Saturday against the Falcons.

But it's been a little over a month now, and the Eagles have gotten used to the new normal.
