Odds Are Vegas Is Wrong About Eagles-Falcons

A berth in the NFC championship game is at stake when Ryan leads the Atlanta Falcons (11-6) against the Philadelphia Eagles (13-3) in a divisional playoff Saturday. However, four consecutive pass plays didn't work against the Eagles' defense.

It's worth noting Jones also landed out of bounds, which would've negated the touchdown even if he had hung onto the pass, though it's also fair to say he could've landed differently had he caught the ball.

It's close, but our win probability model thought Doug Pederson was probably too conservative on fourth down there. "And the guys did a good job of stopping it, man".

Ryan says he has become more comfortable with Sarkisian, especially the last two weeks in wins over Carolina and the Rams. "And it's the underdog mask and I wasn't going to field any questions but I decided I would field them in the dog mask".

But for that touchdown catch, Freeman was held to seven yards on 10 rushing carries and had a meagre 26 yards in the passing game.

"I'm used to it now", Ryan said about returning home.

It was ugly, base, representing the worst of us. Does your dog wear an Eagles or Vikings football jersey? The O-linemen - including Stefen Wisniewski and Halapoulivaati Vaitai - were the Eagles' most valuable players.

The Eagles kicked a 53-yard field goal as time expired in the second quarter to cut the Falcons lead to a single point at 10-9.

Trailing by a point at halftime, the Eagles put together a pair long drives to wrestle the lead away from the Falcons.

Despite being underdogs as the No.1 seed, the Eagles showed plenty of character in the tightest spots of the fourth quarter and Jake Elliott atoned for a missed extra point with three field goals. But on the very next play, Eagles running back Jay Ajayi was the recipient of a big Ricardo Allen hit and fumbled. That decisive 21-yard kick capped an 80-yard, 14 play drive that took nearly eight minutes off the clock.

Expectations for Philadelphia plummeted after Carson Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14.

The challenge for Pederson and Foles will be getting the ball to the running backs on short passes against Minnesota's terrific linebackers.
