Eagles aware of historic underdog status against Falcons

On Saturday, the Eagles make their long-awaited return to the postseason as the Atlanta Falcons come to town once again.

To the rest of the football world it may have been just another wild-card game. There are many players who will have to step up in the spotlight on Saturday and have the biggest game of their 2017-2018 season. "Go play. Let's go execute the offense, '" Pederson said. After the Jaguars intercepted him five times in a 30-9 win this season in Pittsburgh, he said, "Maybe I don't have it anymore".

What figures to be the best game of the divisional round, a redux of the Vikings' 29-19 home victory in the season opener.

But the celebration nearly didn't happen. Kicker Mike Michel missed the point after. But now that it's the postseason, the running back figures to have a prominent role.

"The only time they quit is when they took their helmets off and they were walking off the field", Humphrey said.

Channel 2 Action News, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB Radio are your home for everything Atlanta Falcons. But to understand how little ball movement the Eagles generated under Foles, an instructive statistic is his adjusted yards per attempt, which accounts for the effect of interceptions. Fournette dominated in the last meeting with 28 carries for 181 yards and two touchdowns. K Jake Elliott made 26 of 31 field goals (83.8 percent) and 39 of 42 extra points.

He missed it and the comeback was complete. Two of those teams tried to play and win without our starting QB in the playoffs. "Philadelphia wasn't the first team to experience that with Atlanta". They allowed 79.2 rushing yards per game this season, which is the best in the league.

On the other side of the ball, the Falcons have legitimate wins against legitimate teams: Green Bay with Rodgers, Dallas by 20 points, at Seattle, New Orleans, and Carolina. They did it quite a few times. If Georgia can take something positive from this loss, it is that they will be a contender for years to come.

Gagnon writes Alford outplayed Desmond Trufant and Keanu Neal in the Falcons secondary Saturday against the Los Angeles Rams.

The most obvious topic for this column is the Eagles and their playoff chances, and one would think there would be plenty to say on that subject. But we were here, in Atlanta.

Ryan will enter the game with a 1-2 career record on the road in the playoffs. "They have a real understanding of the scheme, and for a long time I've felt the way they feature the guys in the system really lends to playing really good run defense". "And we never even got close - didn't even smell the playoffs". In the end of the regular season, the Falcons locked in the NFC's 6 seed by winning some crucial matchups in the final stretch. "Basically, get out of your own head and play the game you know how to play". "Just being there, being around the people".

A mid-season acquisition by the Eagles, the former Miami Dolphins running back lit up the Falcons on October 15. They will also be looking for revenge from past year because they should have won the 2017 Super Bowl.
