Atlanta Falcons: 5 Offseason moves the team needs to make

Atlanta Falcons: 5 Offseason moves the team needs to make

It was that side of the ball that ended their chances to get to the big game again.

In the absence of star quarterback Carson Wentz, the Eagles went into Saturday's game as the first top-seeded team in National Football League history not to be favoured in their first post-season game.

Coverage of the NFC Championship game will air on FOX beginning at 6:40 pm ET from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA.

"I thought we dealt with a lot throughout the year", Ryan said after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles 15-10 in the NFL Divisional Round. The mask worn by Johnson and Long is now sold out but there are a few more expensive options out there for those who really want the mask.

That was exemplified against the Eagles (14-3), who like the Falcons sputtered in the red zone. LeGarrette Blount had 19 yards and a touchdown in nine attemts. On their final offensive play of the season, the Falcons called a play for their two best players: Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

When the game is on the line, put it in the hands of your best players. You just don't know necessarily what's coming. "It just didnt work out".

Wentz certainly seemed to bolster the Eagles' spirits when he was the starting quarterback, as he pieced together an MVP-caliber campaign before suffering a season-ending ACL tear December 10. The Eagles defense will be in the spotlight a week later against the well-rounded Minnesota offense. That's because Nick Foles had been shaky in three starts since star quarterback Nick Foles went down, and the Falcons scored an impressive road win over the Rams in the Wild Card round. He had a rookie quarterback previous year, a brutal receiving corps and a defense with many holes. And they might want to bring an extra one for Eagles coach Doug Pederson. We were looking for that opportunity and that matchup on that specific play.

"Those are certainly topics we are going to look long and deep into".

But he couldn't get free downfield, except for a 20-yard reception on fourth down on the final drive.

Atlanta's running game was spotty against the Eagles, too. Time to get the dogs out. On other plays, he and Devonta Freeman didn't have an inch to run when Ryan handed off. After Foles threw deep into the wind, the ball twisting, turning and nearly ending up on Darien Street, Ajayi fumbled the ball away on his first carry, at the 26-yard line of the Falcons. But New England's defense, with three starters from the state, limited Henry to 28 yards on 12 carries and three receptions for 21 yards.

Pederson's defining quality this season has been his ability to adapt and overcome despite the type of injuries that derail most teams' seasons.

Now, the Falcons must cope with a much earlier and almost as dramatic defeat as what they sustained last February. If the NFL Network is part of your cable package, you can also live stream the game through the NFL app on XBox, Apple TV, or Roku device on your TV. There's a lot of back and forth. And when you don't get that result, it's hard.

"The finality of it sometimes is hard, so we're disappointed for sure".
