Eagles stifle Falcons to reach NFC championship game

3 reasons the Eagles will lose to the Falcons, courtesy of Bleeding Green Nation
They made it all the way to the Super Bowl last season only to blow a 25-point lead. "It was a tough game for him and for us and we'll go back and assess it.
That was it. Our team never wavered", Foles said to NBC's Michele Tafoya after the 15-10 win at the Linc. If Atlanta wins, it will play the NFC championship game on the road at the Saints or Vikings.
"This is not the way we think", he said. "There were too many times that we were a little bit inconsistent".
Again, Foles was not sharp in the first half, but this throw was so bad it surprised the Falcons defense, and the deflection landed right in Torrey Smith's lap, giving the Eagles a chance to complete one more pass to Alshon Jeffery to get into field goal range, where Jake Elliott nailed a 53-yarder as the first half expired.
Then, as the fans in the Linc held their breath, the Eagles held deep in their territory.
While the "what is a catch?" debate continues to baffle basically every person in football, what's clear is that a Falcons comeback effort somehow fell short when Julio Jones couldn't come up with a 4th-and-goal pass in the end zone. "It just didn't work out and that's disappointing". Overall, it was a slow offensive game for both teams in a low-scoring bloodbath ending in a 15-10 victory.
The sixth-seeded Falcons (11-6) beat the Los Angeles Rams 26-13 in a wild-card game last week, slightly erasing the sting of their Super Bowl loss to New England. Basically a game of field goals late in the game, except for one safety that the Eagles' defense caused.
Atlanta averaged 22.1 points per game, down from 33.8 last season.
Ajayi lost the rock on just the second play from scrimmage, and Atlanta converted it into an early field goal from Matt Bryant. "Was there plays that knocked us out?" He's just a humble guy playing the game he loves. Jones finished with nine catches for 101 yards on 16 targets while Sanu had three receptions for 50 yards on five targets.
But he couldn't get free downfield, except for a 20-yard reception on fourth down on the final drive.
Momentum was with the Eagles as Foles looked to be settling into the game, until a special teams fiasco gave Atlanta the ball in the red zone after Philly touched the kick.

Atlanta, which did not have any players on the final injury report, listed Marvin Hall, Terrence Magee, Leon McFadden, Sean Weatherspoon, Sean Harlow, Austin Pasztor and Eric Saubert as inactives. Freeman had only 7 yards on his 10 carries. His production made up for an early fumble and so much more.
"It's hard when you get to the playoffs and you've put in all the work throughout the year", Ryan said. "You can't ask for nothing else in a playoff game". There's a lot of back and forth. "You want the ball in your hand".

The Seahawks tried a clever trick play and it was intercepted
So far this season: He has thrown seven touchdown passes, been picked off once and is completing two-thirds of his pass attempts. So should we be buying into the 3-1 Rams? But the lack of rushes? But even in the loss, Seattle only postponed the inevitable.
