NFL Divisional Round: 10 fast facts for Eagles v Falcons

Whether the Eagles advance to the NFC Championship Game on January 20 will in large part rest on the arm of the 28-year-old who is under intense scrutiny from demanding Eagles fans.

These types of games are the reasons why Alshon Jeffery was given a four-year extension with $27 million in guaranteed money. It was their third blown fourth-quarter lead of the season and foreshadowed what would happen in the Super Bowl.

Here's my picks for the divisional round. Vaitai Halapoulivaati brings Eagles fans nightmares. But one that, with Carson Wentz on the sideline, makes enough sense.

Foles followed up his strong 2013 regular season with a decent showing in the playoffs - he threw for 195 yards and two touchdowns in a wild-card round loss to the New Orleans Saints - and he was 6-2 as a starter in 2014 before a broken collarbone ended his season. But with Foles, good games inevitably give way to subpar showings.

Atlanta's defense has speed at all three levels. When Ajayi was with the Miami Dolphins back in week five, he rushed for 130 yards on 26 carries. "For me it's just leave it all out there on Saturday". Expect Tom Brady, Brandin Cooks and Rob Gronkowski to embarrass the Titans lacking secondary with big plays.

Instead of hosting a Kansas City team that dismantled them in Week 1, they instead get a Titans team that has been up-and-down all year. On the other hand, and for all the praise the Falcons offense receiving after their win, the Atlanta offensive line struggled. With DeMarco Murray ruled out again, Henry could make a difference.

"I'm not going to say more passionate, but I would say more Northeast", Quinn said with a smile. The Falcons also rushed for 124 yards and held the ball for almost 38 minutes, keeping it from the NFL's No. 1 offence. Wentz threw for 231 yards. That's bad. Foles also is averaging less than five yards per pass attempt this season - a full yard per pass attempt less than Joe Flacco, who was last in the league in that category this season.

Jacksonville's defense can clearly create a number of problems for Pittsburgh. They have now forced at least one turnover in six straight away games after failing to force a single one in their previous three. "So same way with the rest of the guys that are hurt, I do want them to feel a part of what we're doing and help their positions where they can".

Offensively, the Eagles are averaging 28.6 points and 365.8 total yards (233.6 in passing and 132.2 in rushing) per game. "Both teams like to run it, and both teams are good defending the run". I'm more fired up than my co-workers for this game, and I'm an "outsider" who just joined the fanbase. Bell will be the Steelers' X-factor, and guide them to a huge postseason victory. Now Vegas and the gambling public are apparently on-board because of one game. Minnesota was victorious in Week 1, but a lot has changed since then. It will be interesting to see if they run the ball much against the best defence in the country in the Vikings. But I just have a good feeling about this Saints team.
