Atlanta Falcons Final Thoughts and Game Predictions

With AP Photos.Quarterback Matt Ryan has another shot at a happy homecoming.

The Eagles and the Atlanta Falcons will kickoff their NFL Divisional Round matchup on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field, the team's first playoff game since 2013. This will be a homecoming game for Ryan as he grew up 32 miles from Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Eagles will host the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday, January 13.

There's the part of me that's inclined to think the Falcons have an overwhelming advantage at quarterback with 2016 MVP Matt Ryan facing backup Nick Foles, and that in the playoffs QB play becomes even more important than it is during the regular season. "So, that's something I think we always talk about, and obviously you could see it in that game against Kansas City".

This could be one of the games of the season. They've connected on 6 of 16 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown in nearly two-and-a-half games. "At the same time, it's like, if you can get through that wave of defenders in the box, then there's going to be a lot of space".

"They are a little bit different than past year", Schwartz said. In place of Wentz, the Eagles have journeyman Nick Foles who has been inconsistent (57 of 101 for 537 yards, five touchdowns, two interceptions and a passer rating of 79.5). He's certainly a drop-off from Wentz, but he's also capable of spectacular performances.

This perception, based mainly on the belief that next to no one believes that the team has a snowball's chance in hell of winning with quarterback Nick Foles at the helm, has fans (and a few players) smarting a little. He had four TDs in his first start in Week 15. "I don't care nothing about Vegas and underdogs", added Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery.

One protestor was killed and dozens of government headquarters and institutions were set on fire. More than 770 people have been detained in almost a week of sometimes violent demonstrations.

But Atlanta just scored an impressive 26-13 playoff road win versus the Los Angeles Rams, so they won't be intimidated by a boisterous crowd.

"I'm not going to say more passionate, but I would say more Northeast", Quinn said with a smile. "That's where it all starts, coming off the ball, the cadence and stuff like that". We went right through like we wanted, and we're fortunate that he's back here today and back into it. "We're counting on our fans on Saturday".

The Falcons spent the regular season trying to ignore questions about a Super Bowl hangover, and their silencing of the Rams last Saturday night shows how risky a playoff-hardened team can be.

But he'll need them to stay true if Philadelphia is to return to the NFC Championship Game, which seemed like a shoo-in before the injury to Carson Wentz. Philadelphia has never lost a divisional playoff game at home, and I think that trend will continue this weekend. The Falcons will be seeing one of the best defences in the National Football League as Philadelphia ranked fourth in yards allowed, first against the run and fourth in scoring (18.4 ppg).

"Now it's kind of in our DNA", cornerback Jalen Mills said. Ronald Darby is even shorter than that. "Having this time to self-scout, go through practice and everything, you realize that you just go out there and play". They have multiple backs for multiple situation. Zach Ertz is tied for 2nd among NFL TEs with 8 TDs and ranked 3rd with 824 yards receiving.

Offensively, the Eagles are averaging 28.6 points and 365.8 total yards (233.6 in passing and 132.2 in rushing) per game.
