Zach Ertz limited to three catches while Eagles advance to NFC Championship

Defensive end Chris Long of the Eagles wears

This is a major theme going around the Eagles locker room right now.

However, considering the Falcons' defence is giving up an average of just 16.3 points per game over the last six, the offence's performance might not even matter.

And on Saturday, he stood up to the challenge. That's what it's always been about.

"Just keep on disrespecting and we're going to keep proving people wrong", wide receiver Alshon Jeffery said. "It's the same thing we had been doing all game". "This was just an opportunity to put it in Nelson's hands with Lane Johnson as a puller and just executed extremely well". Such is life for a starting National Football League quarterback.

We wanted to get the inside scoop on the Eagles and touch base with FanSided's Inside The Iggles. We brought the energy all week in practice and we studied like no other. "He had the whole world against him today, and he knew what was coming, but the way he prepared, especially during the bye week, we saw how serious he was, and he had great resolve".

But on fourth and goal, Jones slipped and was unable to haul in Ryan's desperate pass, leaving the Eagles to run down the clock for the win. We come in, and Nick Foles is the new quarterback.

Atlanta was the NFL's highest-scoring team last season, but its lowest production was in a 24-15 defeat to the Eagles. That's easier said than done, especially in a place they call Wentzylvania. At that point, a backup QB is a curse, a disappointment. New England is also 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS in its last three games as a double-digit favorite in the playoffs.

"I thought it was a good call", Ryan said. They held Jared Goff in check, rattling his cage all game long with a relentless pass rush. We didn't execute it and they did.

At times, Foles was fantastic. Instead, Jake Elliott would kick a 21-yard field goal, meaning Ryan would need to direct a touchdown drive for the victory. Foles caught fire in the third quarter, completing 6 of 8 passes for 78 yards. That, Ryan was unable to do when, on fourth-and-goal at the two, he rolled to his right and lofted a balloon toward Julio Jones who was smothered by Jalen Mills.

But at least he didn't go bust. "He made the throws he had to make". ". He didn't make that mistake that would have hurt us". When Wentz was lost to a season-ending knee injury with three games left in the regular season, the Eagles' favored franchise status was naturally downgraded. There are a lot of really good things that we've done and it was highlighted certainly tonight where we didn't get the job done at the end of the game.

For his Philadelphia teammates, Foles delivered about what was expected. Will we see the Nick Foles who threw for four touchdowns against the Giants?

The offense got off to a awful start. In an instant, Eagles' fans began their annual dance with misery.

As close as they came to it, the Eagles could understand what it must have felt like for that game to end and be left with nothing.

According to The Washington Post, since the merger in 1970, there have been just five cases when the home team was installed as an underdog in the divisional round - and all of them were No. 2 seeds. "We never doubted him".
