NFL Divisional Round Odds: Falcons, Steelers highlight favorites

Eagles Are Underdogs?! Yes Here's Why

Back-up quarterback Nick Foles has taken over the starting duties and has been serviceable, with five touchdowns and two interceptions in his three starts. "[If the] opportunity's there, rip it".

That's not to say Ajayi can't do it.

But Foles, 28, is also the same guy who once threw seven TDs in a single game, the same guy who in 2013 during in his first tour with the Eagles, became the second-ever QB to post a flawless 158.3 passer rating in a single game. The game that Foles was set up inside the 25 twice he had four touchdowns and actually looked good. "My mindset is always downhill, attacking, try to punish guys".

Ajayi was the main man in Miami, averaging 20 carries per game.

In this December 25, 2017, file photo, Philadelphia Eagles' Jay Ajayi (36) runs for a touchdown during the first half of an NFL football game against the Oakland Raiders, in Philadelphia.

They seem to know everything that's been said, written or thought about them as they head into Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Falcons.

Under-the-radar potential X factor: Keanu Neal, Vic Beasley, Deion Jones, Desmond Trufant and Grady Jarrett get most of the love on that Atlanta defense, but watch for No. 2 corner Robert Alford. "Certainly, his production has continued to ramp up, and hopefully we keep getting good production from that position".

Foles struggled against the Oakland Raiders in week 16, completing just 50 percent of passes and threw one interception. It will be interesting to see how the Eagles approach Jones.

"He's just a big guy who can run", Mills said. I hadn't lost my ties and friends in Atlanta, you know, it was great. Atlanta will be looking to return to the NFC Championship for the second straight year, while Philadelphia must overcome the loss of star quarterback Carson Wentz.

Neither side found the end zone in the third quarter, but Elliott once again nailed a kick, this time from 37 yards, to give the Eagles their first lead of the game.

The win had more to do with the two early Special Teams turnovers from the Rams than it did great play from the Falcons. The total has also gone over in seven of the Saints' last nine games against the Vikings. The field goal was the longest in Eagles postseason history as well as record for any rookie in the playoffs. Blount led the team with 766 yards rushing and Clement had 321.

Fletcher Cox and Timmy Jernigan may not be Donald, but they are top-tier interior defensive linemen that are more than capable of wreaking havoc.

The Falcons ran the ball 39 times and attempted 30 passes against the Rams in the 26-13 wild-card win last week. "They've essentially had three weeks to really work with Foles and the offense to figure something out". "One of the goals every team in the National Football League has at the beginning of the season is to have at least one home Playoff game and then hopefully get two".

"From the scheme, we will take from what went well and what didn't go well in that game", Ryan said.

All the momentum rests with the Falcons. What's more, there are areas where they're vulnerable.

The 28 year-old is highly unlikely to go out and win this game for the home team. It won't be enough.

Things to look for: This is a different Atlanta Falcons' team from a year ago, one that stresses the ground game as of late - as well as an improved defensive unit.
