Eagles hold off Falcons to reach NFC title game

Eagles hold off Falcons to reach NFC title game

Then, with the wind in the next quarter, the Eagles kept the Falcons so off-balance Atlanta took two timeouts in three plays. They made some plays.

The Eagles may be the top seed in the NFC and have home-field advantage in next Sunday's conference title game after beating the Falcons, but this team feels slighted by each prognosticator, pundit and panelist who has come out in the past few weeks to declare them finished. A Foles pass went off the knee of a leaping Keanu Neal and the ball caromed back to Eagles receiver Torrey Smith. "There's going to be a lot of outside noise in any sport when you're doing something on a big stage. We blocked it out". We're disappointed that we didn't make the play, but I thought it was a good call.

That was as artistic as it got in the Birds' 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons in the divisional playoffs Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field.

"The biggest thing in our locker room is we believe in one another". "It felt like we had the right players in mind at the right time, and we just fell a little bit short".

Overall, Foles completed 77 percent of his passes - 23-for-30 - for 246 yards without a touchdown or interception.

"He had the whole world against him today, and he knew what was coming, but the way he prepared, especially during the bye week, we saw how serious he was, and he had great resolve". "We prepared and felt ready".

"Nick is Nick, and that's what we've talked about", Doug Pederson said.

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

The Atlanta Falcons almost won a Super Bowl a year ago behind the NFL's most potent offense.

"That's the life that you kind of live as a competitor when you get in those situations", Ryan said. But head coach Dan Quinn did not regret the choice to put the game in the hands of his top playmakers.

"It's an unbelievable feeling when you come out for the game and the stadium is just rocking with fans", Pederson said.

It was that side of the ball that ended their chances to get to the big game again. "For now, it's just tough".

Elliott's third field goal, a 21-yarder, extended Philadelphia's lead to 15-10 with 6:02 left in the fourth quarter.

"You guys doubted him", said Alshon Jeffery, conveniently dropping reporters and bookmakers onto the same pile.

The win advances the Eagles to the NFC Championship game. Foles also didn't turn the ball over against the Falcons and managed to lead the Eagles on three scoring drives that each lasted at least 12 plays and took more than five and a half minutes.

Elliott booted a 53-yard field goal as time expired to bring Philadelphia within 10-9 at halftime. They were 6-for-13 (46 percent), running back Jay Ajayi cashing in three of them, the longest off a 32-yard screen pass.

The Eagles then went 15-10 ahead with another Elliott field goal in the fourth, crucially taking almost eight minutes off the clock with a 14-play, 80-yard drive. A replay reversed the call, marking Foles down at the 1, setting up Blount's touchdown on fourth down, though Elliott missed the extra point.
