Falcons final offensive play did not surprise Eagles defense

The Eagles defensive line will cause the Falcons all kinds of problems, just as they Rams defensive front did last week.

But Atlanta just scored an impressive 26-13 playoff road win versus the Los Angeles Rams, so they won't be intimidated by a boisterous crowd. The Falcons struggle in Philly.

"The guys are gonna motivate themselves based on what they've heard for the last month". That meant former starter Nick Foles took over. And he will be under center on Saturday against the Falcons.

The Red Sea is a key shipping route for world trade that connects the Middle East to Europe via the Suez Canal. The Bab al-Mandab Strait is the southern entrance to the Red Sea.

But he shrugged it off Saturday night, and while he didn't quite play like the Nick Foles of 2013, there were times he got into a rhythm and looked pretty close.

"It's a play we've had in our arsenal, but never got to it", Pederson said. Quinn was asked if he was confident Ryan and Jones could execute the play.

In contrast, the Eagles ran for 96 yards and had several big plays on the ground. And when the Eagles' defense was on the field, they were as good as they needed to be, keeping the Falcons off the scoreboard the entire second half. Their players really swarm to the ball. They have seen the predictions. A lot of single-high.

India beat Pakistan by seven wickets
The Green Shirts lead the points table after registering back-to-back victories against Bangladesh and Nepal. Mohammed Jail scored 94 runs off 91 balls as Pakistan scored a competitive total of 282/8 in 40 Overs.

Sure, the Eagles can use this as motivation - us against the world, and all that - and have the comfort of playing at home, but it's not going to be easy to knock off the reigning NFC champions. "It's a quality defense, but that's what we expect this time of year". The win was the Falcons sixth in their past eight games.

Philadelphia's defense limited Atlanta to 281 total yards on the day, which included shutting down starting running back Devonta Freeman to the tune of seven rushing yards on 10 carries.

The bigger concern, though, is the outside with receivers Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu. Entering the game, Quinn spoke of the importance of remaining balanced on offense, and the Falcons are at their best when the run can set up the play-action pass. His job was to block for Ryan to seal the edge, but Bradham said he realized Toilolo wasn't running a route, which allowed him to rush aggressively and pressure the quarterback. "He's a veteran quarterback". But the slight appeared to be exactly what the Eagles needed. The Linc will be loud this weekend, as the fanbase as a whole has been waiting four years for another playoff game. Falling short is sometimes the best motivation to keep pushing forward and trying to really yearn to become a better player, to become a better team. "Even my time as an assistant coach being in the postseason, just leaning on those times, leaning on the guys". That's what we thought was the best play to go win the game. And again, just stay in the moment.

Forecast: Cold today, snow possible Sunday
Friday Night: A chance of showers and thunderstorms before 7 p.m., then a slight chance of rain between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. There's a 20 percent chance of snow after midnight on Saturday along with increasing clouds and a low around 11 degrees.
