Homefield advantage pays off as the Eagles outlast Atlanta

It has been nine long years since the Philadelphia Eagles have won a playoff game.

Thanks to Foles doing just enough to get by on offense after completing 23 of 30 passes for 246 yards with no turnovers, Philadelphia was able to prove all of the doubters wrong by hanging on for the tough win against Atlanta to advance to the NFC Championship to face the victor of Sunday's game between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings. The sixth-seeded Falcons finish the year with an 11-7 record. In the second quarter the Eagles broke through with the game's first touchdown - but missed the extra point.

Atlanta's season ends after a wild-card berth and a win at Los Angeles before Saturday's defeat. But the reality is the Falcons wouldn't be here if not for their top-10 defense.

Finally, Pederson made the right decision on a pair of fourth downs.

"It was a tough game for us", Quinn said, "and as we go through, we will go back and assess everything we have done".

Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons offense will need to be sharp against defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and the Eagles' No. 4-ranked defense.

Prediction: This game will be decided the way most games are and that's in the trenches. "You're in a competitive game like tonight. When you don't get that result, it's hard". "I understand Carson is a great player, but every week our guys hear we're not good enough". Ajayi had 50 yards rushing on eight carries through Philadelphia's first drive of the second quarter, but didn't get the ball again until the second half.

As for the play call to Agholor, it came on third-and-3 at the Atlanta 24. Five of those seven runs went for 2 yards or less, highlighting just how little room the Falcons had to run on Saturday night.

Lane Johnson walked off the field wearing a dog mask while teammates barked after the Philadelphia Eagles squeaked out an upset to move within one victory of the Super Bowl.

The latter was a 14-play, 80-yard drive capped with a 21-yard field goal by kicker Jake Elliott to increase Philadelphia's lead to 15-10, which proved to be the final score.

JAY TRAIN: Ajayi shook off the fumble and ran well until he inexplicably went to the bench for a long stretch. Safety Keanu Neal recovered on the Atlanta 26-yard line. In the fourth, Atlanta's defense struggled to get off the field and the Eagles burned the clock.

Despite being the top seed in their conference, the Eagles find themselves as underdogs entering today's game due to the absence of star quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a season-ending knee injury past year. On third down from the 6, Ryan escaped a sack, stepped up and tossed a pass to Freeman in the end zone. Ryan somehow kept his balance before taking a big hit as he unloaded the pass, which was the 20th postseason touchdown pass of his career.
