Reasons Why The Eagles Will Beat The Falcons In The Playoffs

6 things to know about the Atlanta Falcons v. Philadelphia Eagles matchup

This match-up between the northern birds (Eagles) and the southern birds (Falcons) marks the first time in history that the No. 1 seed in the National Conference is an underdog on their home turf.

Nick Foles performed poorly in his past two starts, and the Falcons are favored in Philadelphia.

The disrespect is real, and the Birds have had enough of it. And for us to be the first to win a playoff - at home - I don't think it would have meant as much if we were in Philadelphia. You'll see. And for the doubters, they can climb on board, too.

"I'm done talking about it".

"I don't care what people say because what people say has never won a game for me and my teammates", linebacker Dannell Ellerbe said.

Despite their denials to the contrary, the Birds are motivated by the apparent disrespect.

They will need to stop two of the best players in the NFL: Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, who has rushed for almost 1300 yards and nine touchdowns this season, and wide receiver Antonio Brown, with 1500 yards and nine touchdowns. We have to get ready for the next week. "We're all we got, we're all we need". There's still a lot of challenges with that team. The Falcons also rushed for 124 yards and held the ball for almost 38 minutes, keeping it from the NFL's No. 1 offence.

The Eagles beat the Falcons, 27-10, in the NFC Championship Game in 2004 and 20-6 in a divisional matchup in 2002.

Pederson wants Foles to be himself, he said.

"My message to Nick is: Listen, we have a great opportunity". Just go be Nick. Back's against the wall. Austin Hooper and Taylor Gabriel had combined for 869 yards and four touchdowns. He ran for more than 200 yards in three of those games.

It's not like the former Arizona star doesn't have playoff experience.

This is the first time the Falcons and Eagles have met in the playoffs since following the 2004 season. We'll take it. We came through last Saturday letting you know Atlanta covering on the road in L.A. against the Rams was a lock.

"I haven't executed as well as I wanted to in the last couple of weeks", Foles said.

"I think having this time to self-scout. you realize, 'Hey, just go out there and play.' Maybe I wasn't doing that as much those games". Sometimes the hardest things are just the simple things. If Georgia can take something positive from this loss, it is that they will be a contender for years to come.

Jay Ajayi wasn't part of the Eagles' preseason plans. Jaworski, though, managed to drive Philadelphia all the way down to the Falcons' 16-yard line on four pass completions. He averaged five yards per carry.

Tackle Lane Johnson boycotted the media a month ago when he sensed a perception change surrounding the Eagles when Wentz got hurt. They have now forced at least one turnover in six straight away games after failing to force a single one in their previous three. Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby aren't afraid to take on running backs and fight off blocks.

"If they stack eight in the box, we have to make plays on the outside", Jeffery said.

The Eagles, after all, finished fourth in the National Football League in scoring defense. That's not going to change. He has proven he can make tough throws and make clutch plays in big moment in his career.

And he comes into Saturday's game feeling fresh.
