Eagles look to prove they can win without star QB Wentz

Ricky: Eagles. I love the matchup inside for the Eagles, with defensive tackles Fletcher Cox and Timmy Jernigan going up against a Falcons offensive line that lost starting guard Andy Levitre before last week's game against the Los Angeles Rams. Over the next 4:52, the Falcons snapped the ball 13 times and advanced 74 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.

The Falcons answered with a touchdown of their own a few minutes later thanks, in large part, to some beneficial refereeing that kept their drive going before Devonta Freeman caught a six yard pass from Matt Ryan to restore Atlanta's lead, 10-6.

For the first time in playoff history, a No. 1 seed is an underdog. They now also remember the Falcons went to the Super Bowl a year ago and have a savvy veteran QB. Elliott drained a 37-yard field goal and the Eagles reclaimed the lead at 12-10. The Falcons' Matt Ryan was 18-for-33 for 267 yards and a 76-yard TD pass to Taylor Gabriel.

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

There was a significant drop-off from Wentz, particularly when it came to scrambling and making plays outside the pocket. The game that Foles was set up inside the 25 twice he had four touchdowns and actually looked good. "I think first and second down is the problem, because we're losing yards on first and second down with penalties, negative rushing plays, sacks".

Eagles running backs have a good enough run game to gain yards and also take some pressure off of Foles.

Jay Ajayi rallied after fumbling his first carry of the game. This will help open up the ground game.

The Eagles frankly were lucky to only be trailing 10-9 at halftime. If Foles can take care of the ball and make some big plays on the third down, the Eagles can still go a long way. The Eagles can certainly find a way to use him given his prior success against the Falcons last season. That was right after Foles had to fall on a fumble the play before, a pretty fortunate turn of events. The Eagles finished third in the National Football League in rushing during the regular season, compiling 2,115 and nine scores on the ground.

The Eagles have split carries between their running-backs all season, with three notching up more than 300 yards.

Ajayi will be facing a strong Falcons defense that finished the year allowing 104 yards per game. "Having this time to self-scout, go through practice and everything, you realize that you just go out there and play". The Eagles were 5-3 ATS at home this season. Quarterback Nick Foles has looked shaky and many have reservations on whether he lead this team to victory in the playoffs. "A lot of guys have been to the Super Bowl, so they can really wrap and embrace the younger guys and bring them along, sure".
