NFC Divisional Playoffs 2018 live stream. 2018 NFC Divisional Playoffs: Three things to watch in Falcons-Eagles
The Eagles are not exactly getting the respect the No. 1 seed in the NFL playoffs usually gets. And it’s all because they lost starting quarterback Carson Wentz on Dec. 10. Wentz tore his ACL and has been out since, and the Eagles offense has struggled with Nick Foles at the helm. Because of that, the Falcons are slight favorites to win at Philadelphia.
Despite the No.1 seed in the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles are underdogs for their opening game, a first in the history of betting for the top seed in the divisional round. With backup up quarterback Nick Foles in command after a season-ending injury to Carson Wentz, few seem to have faith the Eagles can get the job done.
If Foles can limit his mistakes and allow Philadelphia’s powerful backfield to get on track, the home team could well emerge victorious on Saturday. The combination of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara became the best 1-2 running back punch anybody has seen in years. Both players exceeded 1,500 total yards, and they combined for 26 total touchdowns. The Saints leaned on them early and often both on the ground and through the air.
