In fact, the name "underdog" the Eagles were given this game went into full consideration in the locker room post game. A fan, lucky enough to be down in muck amongst his idols, asked for and got an autograph. And that's what one should expect out of a contending team with its eyes set on winning the Super Bowl. Linebacker Nigel Bradham couldn't get Pederson's attention to throw the challenge flag.

Even he wanted in on the love. Nick Foles has taken the reins the last few weeks, but he isn't the same standard.

Carson Wentz's value to the Philadelphia Eagles is reflected clearly in a historic betting line. He wasn't accountable for any touchdowns or interceptions this game.

Not just in this locker room.

"It's called a sprint pass, a sprint out", Quinn said. That's what it's always been about. "We kept working, kept grinding, had faith in one another". But the biggest thing about this it that it's sports, that's part of it. The Eagles weren't happy about it leading up to Saturday.

Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce and Brandon Brooks led a unit that controlled the line of scrimmage nearly all game.

They say that all tickets will be available on a first come, first served basis, and that there is a four ticket limit per household. "If we believe the outsiders, we'll be all messed up".

"I think that's certainly something that we have to look at and evaluate this offseason", Matt Ryan said after concluding a somewhat down season for him in the wake of his 2016 league MVP campaign.

Mistakes hurt the Eagles in the opening half.

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

As NBC's Cris Collinsworth noted before the snap, the Falcons were going to run arguably their best play, the play they felt most confident in, with the season on the line.

And, sometimes, a saving grace.

Spurs supremo issues star players vow
Steve Nicol has told ESPN that he believes Tottenham Hotspur star Danny Rose will leave for Manchester United in the summer. Spurs have been looking at solutions to try and keep hold of their best players.

The Eagles had used a dominant rushing attack on a long drive to take the lead earlier in the 2nd quarter. "It's a great job a great team win".

The NFL divisional round kicks off with the Philadelphia Eagles playing host to the Atlanta Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia on Sunday morning. That's what we thought was the best play to go win the game.

At times, Foles was fantastic.

A 37-yard field goal by Elliott gave the Eagles a 12-10 lead with 11 seconds left in the third quarter.

On a crucial third-quarter drive, which also resulted in three points, Foles started 5 of 5.

The real problem for the Falcons defense has been trying to stop running back Jay Ajayi, who ran all over them once already earlier this season for 130 yards with the Miami Dolphins. After Ryan made an interesting decision to wait to throw on an open Levine Toilolo near the end zone on a boot leg that ended up incomplete, Ryan was able to extend a third-and-goal play with his feet and found Devonta Freeman for his second touchdown catch of the season. Nick did a great job moving us down the field and setting us up. "He made the throws he had to make". With that being a close game, low-scoring, we're equipped to do that. "Yeah, absolutely. We're giving our shots to Matt and Julio to go for it to win the game".

For his Philadelphia teammates, Foles delivered about what was expected.

Two dirty words in Philadelphia now are "Chip Kelly", but because of that good experience, Foles is unfazed by pace and volume.

The day began harshly for the Eagles. But Jeffery woke up big time after the break.

Coleman, usually the backup, had 79 yards on 10 carries, with a long of 23.

"You guys doubted him", Jeffrey said.

"If we believe the outsiders, we will be all messed up", Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said.
