Embracing 'underdog' status, Eagles players wear dog masks after beating Falcons

Embracing 'underdog' status, Eagles players wear dog masks after beating Falcons

"It goes back to believing and having faith we can get it done", Eagles backup quarterback Nick Foles said. For the Falcons to be Super Bowl threats down the road, Jones must be almost unstoppable. Falcons QB Matt Ryan still hasn't completed a game this season with at least three touchdown passes. The Eagles were 5-3 ATS at home this season. The missed connection sent the Falcons to a 15-10 defeat, ending their season and their bid to return to the Super Bowl after last year's heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots.

Foles, who has thrown for 537 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions this season, will have to be at his best against an opportunistic Falcons defense that forced a pair of turnovers in last weekend's 26-13 wildcard win over the Los Angeles Rams.

NBC 10 will provide comprehensive coverage of Eagles Game Day, beginning with "Eagles Game Plan" at noon and followed by "Eagles Road to Victory" at 12:30 p.m., "Eagles Gameday Kickoff" at 1 p.m., "NBC 10 News Playoff Special" at 1:30 p.m. and "Football Night in America" at 3:30 p.m. Nick Foles makes his fourth start.

The run game started working. The Falcons are just 2-6 against the spread in their last six road games versus the Eagles.

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. He was sacked three times and under constant pressure. The offense mustered just nine points in the first half to Atlanta's 10, but the final drive of the the second quarter gave the Eagles the momentum (and points) needed to go into halftime with hope. Obviously, the fumble first carry, can't do that. And it won't be an easy task with so many key players injured: Wentz, linebacker Jordan Hicks, running back Darren Sproles, and left tackle Jason Peters, among others.

They were fortunate to get out of the first half down, 10-9.




"We had chances to make plays and we didn't make them", Ryan said.

The Falcons had a long drive that came up just short at the end of the game.

Elliott's 53-yard field goal with one second remaining in the second quarter trimmed the Philadelphia deficit to one point, and he would cap two second half drives with field goals from 37 and 21 yards out to produce what would ultimately be the final score.

Elliott's third field goal of the game, a 21-yarder, put the Eagles up 15-10 with 6:02 left. "Jake did an awesome job of kicking that for us".

The Atlanta Falcons catch the Philadelphia Eagles at the right time.

Seven of the Falcons' 11 first-down plays were runs, and they had a tough time gaining anything against a stout Eagles defense. He had been listed on the Falcons' injury report due to a knee issue ahead of both playoff games.
