Fans React To Eagles Win over Falcons To Advance to NFC Championship

Fans React To Eagles Win over Falcons To Advance to NFC Championship

They'll meet the victor between the Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints.

Ajayi displayed his pass-catching talent providing quarterback Nick Foles with a reliable outlet in the backfield. The Falcons have not run the ball with almost the efficiency they did past year on their way to the Super Bowl, but Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman remain a formidable tandem.

But after Matt Ryan and the Falcons stunned the No. 3-seeded Rams in their opener, Vegas is slightly higher on Atlanta then they were last week. The Eagles were 5-3 ATS at home this season. The first was a 12-play, 74-yard drive ending with a 37-yard field goal to make it 12-10 in favor of the Eagles.

Elliott connected on a 53-yard field goal as time expired in the first half, closing the Eagles' deficit to 10-9.

From there Ryan connected with Devonta Freeman with a deft six-yard touchdown pass.

The Falcons, last year's NFC champions, had trouble getting off the field in the second half.

Real Madrid Defender Marcelo: 'We Feel Like We Are Sinking'
The visitors were on the back foot for most of the half and they failed to test Los Blancos shot-stopper Keylor Navas . To be unfair ... what the heck, Real Madrid? But the result is final and it could be a final nail in Zidane's coffin.

Whether it's the Saints or the Vikings, the Eagles' opponent in the conference championship game is going to be running into an angry team at the doorstep of a Super Bowl berth. And when the Eagles' defense was on the field, they were as good as they needed to be, keeping the Falcons off the scoreboard the entire second half. Ajayi finished the opening quarter 49 rushing yards and 58 yards from scrimmage which were the most he's ever had in the first quarter of a game. He was sacked three times and under constant pressure.

For the game, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, making just his second career playoff start as he fills-in for injured QB Carson Wentz, completed 23-of-30 passes for 246 yards without a touchdown or an interception. The Falcons attempted a pass play with one minute left, but Ryan was unable to connect with Jones for the game-winning score.

Still, it came down to a few plays at the end after Atlanta drove to a first-and-goal at the 9. The total has also gone over in seven of the Patriots' last 10 home games.

The Eagles took the lead off the Falcons early in the second quarter when running back (RB) LeGarrette Blount charged over on fourth and goal. That was right after Foles had to fall on a fumble the play before, a pretty fortunate turn of events. The Eagles kicker, who was always consistent, Caleb Sturgis, went down with an injury which resulted in picking up Jake Elliott.

The Falcons have a quick, athletic defense but if the Eagles can run the ball and wear down the Falcons defense, Foles could have a big day. I'm set in my ways and like pro football games to be played on Sunday. It's been that kind of game so far for Foles. The Eagles have appeared in two Super Bowls in franchise history, but have never won a championship in the Super Bowl era.
