Philadelphia Eagles' Smith makes immaculate catch off of defender's knees

Defensive end Chris Long of the Eagles wears

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. Julio Jones caught 10 passes for 135 yards. They used it as motivation and now it's onto the next one as they continue pursuit of the franchise's first Super Bowl title.

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.

Foles outplayed Ryan, bouncing back from a pair of subpar games with an efficient performance.

Still, it came down to a few plays at the end after Atlanta drove to a first-and-goal at the 9.

It would take Atlanta less than five minutes to retake the lead, with Ryan's six-yard touchdown pass to Devonta Freeman giving the visitors a 10-6 lead. After that, the Falcons offense got quiet until the end of the fourth quarter.

The nightcap features the AFC's top seed, the New England Patriots (13-3), and the No. 5 seed Tennessee Titans (10-7) at Foxborough, Massachusetts. On second down, Ryan hit Julio Jones to bring the ball to the 2.

Foles threw for 246 yards on 23-for-30, but at halftime he had just 101 yards on 11 completions, gaining almost as much on penalties caused by bad throws than on receptions.

Foles was 23 for 30 for 246 yards over all, while Ryan was 22 of 36 for 210.

One victory shy of the third Super Bowl berth in franchise history, the Eagles have adopted an "us against the world" mentality.

The Eagles, however, remained in touch thanks to a freakish play late in the second quarter, when Foles' pass ricocheted off Falcons safety Keanu Neal's knee and into the arms of Alshon Jeffery to put the hosts in field goal range. Obviously, the fumble first carry, can't do that.

"Man, oh man oh man oh man. Nick Foles is the man, oh man oh man". He finished the game with 54 rushing yards on 15 carries and 98 total scrimmage yards.

Then, midway through the second quarter, the Falcons took advantage of another Eagles mistake when linebacker LaRoy Reynolds recovered a muffed punt return on the Eagles 18-yard line. LeGarrette Blount is the team's leading rusher, but Jay Ajayi is the most talented. "We didn't get the job done, but 100 out of 100 we're going to try to put the ball in those two guys' hands to try to go win it".

Rookie Takk McKinley's sack was the only one recorded on the day for the Falcons.

The fine wine that is Matt Bryant cashed in the Falcons' first drive with a 33-yard field goal. Elliott's missed extra point left it 6-3.

On Saturday afternoon, the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Atlanta Falcons to begin the sprint toward Minneapolis and Super Bowl 52.
