How the Eagles beat the Falcons: Weinberg's Two-Minute Drill

Terrill File

He was good. He was bad. "We got a big team win".

Elliott booted his third field goal of the game, a 21-yard chip shot with 6:02 left, for a 15-10 lead.

They did. The Eagles pressured quarterback Matt Ryan on a sprint out and cornerback Jalen Mills covered Atlanta Falcons receiver Julio Jones in the end zone and kept him from making a catch to clinch the Eagles' 15-10 win Saturday, sending the Eagles into the NFC Championship Game a week from today at Lincoln Financial Field.

Coordinators love the idea of rollouts on the goal line, and with big, mobile quarterbacks like Cam Newton, they make sense; a quarterback that can reasonably expect to run through a defender on his way to the end zone is a threat that has to be respected. The Eagles deserve great credit for their defensive performance Saturday, but if the measure of a quarterback is what he does when the pressure is at its apex, Ryan did his job, right up until a predicable play call hung him and his team out to dry. The win sends the Eagles to the NFC Championship Game for the first time since 2009. The Eagles will face off against the victor of today's New Orleans Saints-Minnesota Vikings matchup.

The Eagles are flying for another week. The Falcons also gifted the Eagles 63 yards worth of pass interference calls of their own. Trump's comments didn't go over well, which resulted in harsh words, and even a boycott, by many conservatives. It is the first playoff victory for the Eagles since 2008.

New England (14-3) will host the victor of Sunday's (Monday AEDT) divisional matchup between Jacksonville and Pittsburgh.

The Eagles organization pounced on this angle, playing up the idea that they were being disrespected.

"Get the stop", said Pederson.

He also reportedly suggested that the U.S. should bring in more people from countries like Norway . Another Republican, Representative Mia Love of Utah, is a child of Haitian immigrants.

"Part of our success this season has been the balance, balance of run and pass".

The play helped set up a 53-yard field goal attempt by Jake Elliot that cut the deficit to one point, 10-9, at the half.

Ajayi was noticeably absent for much of the second quarter, creating intrigue about why the Eagles rotated running backs when he averaged 6.3 yards on eight carries.

"Nick is Nick", Pederson said of Foles.

It wasn't an ideal start for the Eagles, who had a bye last week during the wildcard round, as they looked to take down a side who were in the Super Bowl a year ago.

Despite scoring a touchdown, the Eagles still trailed the Falcons, 10-6, in the closing seconds of the first half.

The divisional playoffs kick off Saturday with a doubleheader starting in where the Eagles (13-3) are the first No. 1 seed to enter their first postseason game as an underdog against the.

They had spent 11 1/2 months trying to get back to where they were last February against the Patriots. But Ajayi fumbled on the next play with Keanu Neal recovering. Elliott missed the extra point, though, so it was only a three-point margin. They seemed to gain momentum when they forced an Atlanta punt, but a gaffe by special teams gave Atlanta the ball back at the Philly 18. Sarkisian has come under heavy criticism for the Falcons struggles in 2017, but Schwartz held his counterpart to just 10 points and only allowed him to cross the Eagles 40-yard-line three times.
