NFC divisional round: Falcons at Eagles
Atlanta (10-6) is at Philadelphia (13-3). (4:35 p.m. ET Saturday, NBC):
Without their MVP candidate at quarterback, the Eagles became the league’s first home underdog in the divisional round since 1970. It’s only fitting that they run into last year’s NFC champion Atlanta Falcons on Saturday to prove it. As I said, Nick Foles is capable of making plays. Now isn’t the time to deviate from that weekly goal. If anything, the Falcons need to make sure they establish some semblance of a running game despite facing, statistically, the top rushing defense in the league.
The lowest rating the Rams had in St. Louis for a postseason game while they were based in the Gateway City was 34.1. Agholor was plagued by dropped passes in 2016, along with many other Eagles’ wide receivers, and he reached a big low point when he finished the 2016 matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks with zero receptions for zero yards and dropped a pass that looked like it would’ve been a 40-yard reception for a touchdown.
Although this is a favorable matchup on paper, easy playoff games don’t exist in the NFC. Philadelphia’s success isn’t solely based on Wentz’s brilliance. They have built an incredible roster over the past two years. That starts within the trenches on both sides of the ball.
