Twitter reacts to Nick Foles throwing the worst duck of all time

The real shocker in Minnesota has been the play of its backup quarterback, Case Keenum, and the success of the Vikings offence after losing two opening-day starters in Sam Bradford and rookie running back Dalvin Cook.

To the rest of the football world it may have been just another wild-card game.

Having a loud crowd means more than just support for the home team.

The Titans-Patriots victor will play the Jaguars-Steelers victor next Sunday in the AFC title game. When he started for the Eagles years ago, he was great. The Saints had used a strong running game and good defence to win all season, but Drew Brees showed he's still a threat last week in their win over Carolina. The sixth-seeded Falcons are 3-point favorites. "You know what, I'll be honest with you, I don't know anything about it (the whole controversy)".

But since 2001, quarterbacks making their first or second career playoff start are 0-7 against New England.

Elliott missed an extra point earlier in the quarter.

The suspect Eagles have a suspect quarterback under helm now.

The Eagles are in the unprecedented position of being a home underdog in their first playoff game as the No. 1 seed.

The Falcons, however, refused to quit.

And so cornerback Jalen Mills' message to his teammates in the tunnel right before they took the field against the Atlanta Falcons was no surprise. A fumbled handoff on third-and-goal was recovered by Foles at the 1-yard line. They have won three of their past four away from home, and will have to continue to play that way as the visitors to return to the Super Bowl. LeGarrette Blount ran it in after a botched handoff nearly gave the Falcons the ball. Philadelphia turned to All-Pro tight end, Zach Ertz.

Atlanta's eighth-ranked offense that averaged almost 365 yards per game was held to 281 yards Saturday. I fully expect the Eagles to come out firing this weekend and really take it to the Falcons. Jaworski, though, managed to drive Philadelphia all the way down to the Falcons' 16-yard line on four pass completions.

"That was the cardiac team", Humphrey said. They did it quite a few times. But I won't be at all surprised if they lose. Instead they are getting a Field Goal on the spread. The Falcons are a dome team. "This city has always longed for something". They generated just four takeaways during the first seven games of the season but have forced 14 turnovers in the 10 games since. Now, with their first playoff win, they felt like they had finally arrived. They get freakish athletes - like Jones - and allow them to play even faster with simple, repetitive defensive concepts. "Our mindset is we all we got". Nick Foles' struggles should give anyone pause when picking Philly, but that defense is one of the best in the NFL. "Just being there, being around the people".

"We want teams to come into our stadium and to feel our fans and to feel the excitement and to feel the noise and to feel everything about Philadelphia", Pederson said.

"They have learned to play for 60 minutes, and I think that is the biggest thing that I have noticed last week and the week before", McClain said of the 2017 Falcons.

"Those things have been all sorted out here in the last couple of weeks that he's played and we've been on the field".
