Falcons vs. Eagles 2018: Prediction, Betting Odds, Preview For Divisional Playoff Game

The Washington Post notes the Falcons are a 2.5-point favorite over the Eagles, making Philadelphia the first No. 1 seed to be an underdog in the divisional round since 1970.

The Saints have enough weapons to beat the Vikings secondary but Drew Brees will have to be flawless to take his team to the championship game. Sorry, but I just don't think the Falcons are that good ... or the Eagles are that bad. They're 13-3 and the first seed in the playoffs with a first-round bye! The Eagles are also +500 long shots to win the NFC.

Divisional round games continue on Sunday with the AFC North champion Pittsburgh Steelers (13-3), who like the Patriots and Eagles had a first-round bye, hosting AFC South victor Jacksonville Jaguars (11-6).

Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles, 4:35 p.m. New Orleans held off the Carolina Panthers for the third time this season on Sunday, winning 31-26. As a result, Goff finished with just 259 yards and one touchdown on 24-of-45 passing, and the Rams scored just 13 points.

The Eagles will have a backup quarterback under center, but will there be any other starters (for either team) out on Saturday? RB Jay Ajayi had 873 yards rushing and one TD combined with Dolphins and Eagles. Atlanta started out with three straight wins, but then fell into a skid and lost four of their next five. Atlanta went back and forth until they picked up their 10th win in Week 17.




Matt Ryan was an MVP a season ago but his numbers this year are more average than anything else. The Falcons also rushed for 124 yards and held the ball for almost 38 minutes, keeping it from the NFL's No. 1 offence.

Falcons Running Back Devonta Freeman has been battling a knee injury but, it has not slowed down his speed or explosiveness. After throwing 38 touchdown passes and seven interceptions in 2016, Ryan had 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions during the 2017 regular season. Let's not get too carried away with the Falcons just yet, as they still don't look completely solved on the offensive side of the ball.

The Vikings are at home, have the better defense and are one of the best teams in football. The Eagles earned the tie-breaker and home field advantage up until the Super Bowl.

This game is going to be a lot closer than people expect and is going to come down to a clutch field goal at the end. So, despite possessing a defense that ranked first against the run (79.2 yards per game) and fourth in points allowed (18.4), Vegas has the Eagles as 3-point underdogs to the Falcons. "... This scheme has a certain uniqueness to the coverages they play, but even within that scheme they play it slightly different than everybody else".
