The divisional round of the NFL playoffs kicks off with the Atlanta Falcons visiting the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday. The sixth-seeded Falcons are favored by a field goal. It’s the first time a No. 1 seed has been an underdog in the divisional round and the first time a No. 1 seed has been an underdog to a No. 6 seed in the NFL playoffs.
The Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 40.5, down sharply from an open of 44.5. According to forecasts, the temperature will drop throughout the day, with stiff winds making the air feel even colder.
With quarterback Carson Wentz recovering from a season-ending knee injury, Nick Foles will do his best to pick up the slack for the No. 1 seed Eagles. The early results haven’t been especially encouraging.
Foles completed 47 of 87 passes for 439 yards (with five touchdowns and two interceptions) in his three games, barely playing in the third.
There was a significant drop-off from Wentz, particularly when it came to scrambling and making plays outside the pocket.
