Eagles make winning play at the end

Nick Foles will start in his first playoff game since 2013

While Eagles backup-turned-starter Nick Foles dominated the headlines this past week, it was Philadelphia's defense and running game that helped ensure the win.

"Thats kind of insane to me", Pederson said. "Regardless of whatever the situation may be, we're defending the goal line and that's what we did". "The one nice part is there will be a lot of familiar faces, friendly faces after the game, which is always nice". He was sacked three times and under constant pressure. However, Atlanta's eighth-ranked offense that averaged almost 365 yards per game was held to 281 yards by the Eagles on Saturday.

"Just keep on disrespecting and we're going to keep proving people wrong", Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery said.

"That's a really good Atlanta team we beat and everybody's excited", Eagles defensive end Fletcher Cox told NBC Sports. "It will be some carry over, but it will be a little bit different".

"I mean, we just kept believing in each other", said Foles (23-of-30, 246 yards), who became the starter when Carson Wentz injured his knee in December.

But perhaps the most disturbing sign was the surprising first-half disappearance of Ajayi.

He has not been spectacular with Wentz out. Put another way: The Falcons needed a near-flawless game plan, especially with Foles playing the way he did.

Quinn and offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian can't be faulted for placing their trust in Ryan, the league's reigning MVP, and Jones, one of the top receivers on the planet.

'NORTHEAST' NOISE: There's crowd noise, and then there's the noise generated by Philadelphia fans known for their intensity.

The Falcons still had a chance to negate it all at the end, even saving themselves by following a Mohamed Sanu catch that was overturned on replay, with a huge fourth-down Jones catch.


"I'm not going to say more passionate, but I would say more Northeast", Quinn said with a smile.

Ryan said the Falcons had the right call. That's exacerbated when tight end Levine Toilolo motions to the right. "That's where it all starts, coming off the ball, the cadence and stuff like that". "It was hard for us not to hear it". "We were expecting a pass".

Mack said he expects Philadelphia's fans "to be really dedicated, really loud, really involved".

Eagles 15, Falcons 10.

On third down, Ryan hit Jones slanting across the middle, but the former Foley High School star was tackled at the 2-yard line, setting up the fourth-down play with the Falcons' season on the line.

Jones finished with nine catches for 101 yards. The team said it is gathering facts in the incident involving the 2017 first-round pick out of Alabama.

"They communicated all the way from [Ronald] Darby's side to my side", Mills said. We're 13-3 and have the best record in football.

The Falcons called four pass plays after getting to the 9-yard line.

MULTIPLE BACKS: Both teams have options in the backfield. Jay Ajayi's fumble and a misplayed punt that bounced off Bryan Braman led to 10 Atlanta points. Tevin Coleman had 628 yards rushing and five TDs.

Blount took a pitch and scored on the next play.
