  • The Newest: Elliott hits third FG to offer Eagles 15-10 lead

The two sides shared a pair of touchdowns and field goals in the first half - but a missed extra point gave the Falcons a 10-9 lead going into the second half. Of course, the Falcons' poorly executed (and poorly designed) 4th-and-goal play from the Philadelphia 2-yard line never had a chance. "Just find a way, whether it's pressure on the quarterback or stop the run or whatever was going to happen, just find a way to get it done".

Next Sunday, the Eagles will host either Minnesota or New Orleans for the conference title.

The Eagles established the run early in Saturday's contest, running the ball eight times on the team's first 12 offensive snaps.

Four years ago, of course, it was Nick Foles under center for the Eagles when they lost to the Saints in the playoffs. Trump's comments didn't go over well, which resulted in harsh words, and even a boycott, by many conservatives.

It was the first home playoff victory for the Eagles in more than 11 years.

New England (14-3) will host the victor of Sunday's (Monday AEDT) divisional matchup between Jacksonville and Pittsburgh.

He has not been spectacular with Wentz out.

The Eagles organization pounced on this angle, playing up the idea that they were being disrespected. "(Head coach Doug) Pederson was very calm in the first quarter.

Chelsea's unwanted history with third straight 0-0
Dragovic struggled to find his feet initially as he was troubled by Morata in the first-half but steadied as the game progressed. We have great players also and quality in the squad and a great attitude all the time in training sessions on the pitch.


Two dirty words in Philadelphia now are "Chip Kelly", but because of that good experience, Foles is unfazed by pace and volume.

"Part of our success this season has been the balance, balance of run and pass". Foles once tossed seven TDs in a game in 2013. Ryan was 6-of-10 for 62 yards, including a few high-pressure throws in critical situation.

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 ideal 158.3 passer rating in a single game.

The offense did just enough, with Nick Foles actually outplaying Ryan.

The Atlanta Falcons almost won a Super Bowl a year ago behind the NFL's most potent offense. Instead, he took the ball to start the second half, but it was the Eagles who got the only points of the third period.

The crowd followed. They celebrated a 15-10 postseason win over the Atlanta Falcons on a windy evening at Lincoln Financial Field, and scheduled one more home game in Philadelphia. They will not get the opportunity to atone for it, though Ryan got them close at the end.

While Foles did not turn the ball over on Saturday, he also did not throw a touchdown pass and did little to instil much confidence in Philadelphia's offence.

With 7:41 left in the half, an Atlanta punt bounced off Philadelphia special teams player Bryan Braman and was recovered by the Falcons' LaRoy Reynolds at the Philadelphia 18. At 4th and goal, and attempt by quarterback Matt Ryan to his receiver was just out of reach, returning the ball back to the Eagles. Sarkisian has come under heavy criticism for the Falcons struggles in 2017, but Schwartz held his counterpart to just 10 points and only allowed him to cross the Eagles 40-yard-line three times.
