Vikings would face Eagles in NFC Championship with win over Saints

"I ended up on the ground when I came out of my route".

The top-seeded Eagles won their first playoff game since 2009 and advanced to host the NFC Championship Game next Sunday against either the New Orleans Saints or the Minnesota Vikings.

"We probably had three guys calling out the play on that one just based on our preparation, our study", safety Malcolm Jenkins said, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.

"We know defense wins championships. I don't need to say anything else to anyone". Foles and running back Corey Clement mishandled the handoff, and Foles actually pounced on the ball and dived into the end zone.

They'll need to do the same next week against the victor of Sunday's NFC Divisional Round game, either the New Orleans Saints or Minnesota Vikings.

"Since that point, nobody has given us a chance", said head coach Doug Pederson, who helped feed into the motivational angle all week. We're 13-3, best record in football, home-field advantage throughout. We believe in him and he believes in us and that's our approach.

The Atlanta Falcons almost won a Super Bowl a year ago behind the NFL's most potent offense. Ryan was the 2016 NFL MVP because he made plays like that, but he was not almost as productive in 2017 and was hamstrung by play calling and the Eagles defence on Saturday. But after a Wild Card round win in Los Angeles, the Falcons are just two wins away from getting back to the big game. "For now, it's just tough". Then the Eagles (14-3) held when Atlanta (11-7) got to the 9-yard line with a first down, and to the 2 on fourth down.

"It was tricky out there, really gusty", Elliott said. 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.

In the second quarter, the Eagles scored a touchdown on a one yard run from LeGarrette Blunt. According to NFL.com, Ryan is the third-highest rated postseason passer of all time with a 70.7 completion percentage, 10.1 yards per attempt, 16:3 TD-to-INT ratio and 119.1 rating over his last six playoff games. The score was set up by the Eagles' second turnover as Bryan Braman touched the ball following a punt, putting Atlanta at the Philadelphia 18-yard-line to start the possession. As the game began the Eagles got the ball first and immediately tried to get a big play but the ball Nick Foles threw down the field got caught in the wind and landed about 15 yards short of Torrey Smith, but drew a defensive pass interference call.

Nick Foles recovered a fumble two plays later and initially had a touchdown, but then a review showed he was down at the 1.
