Nick Foles has second chance to be a Rocky-like Eagles hero

It was a night of celebration for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Charles Krupa  AP

"I mean, we just kept believing in each other", said Foles (23-of-30, 246 yards), who became the starter when Carson Wentz injured his knee in December.

But Philadelphia fans were rejoicing at the end of the match, with their side winning 15-10.

Again, Foles was not sharp in the first half, but this throw was so bad it surprised the Falcons defense, and the deflection landed right in Torrey Smith's lap, giving the Eagles a chance to complete one more pass to Alshon Jeffery to get into field goal range, where Jake Elliott nailed a 53-yarder as the first half expired. Scored 100-plus points in each of their 4 quarters in '17...

On Saturday afternoon, the Philadelphia Eagles will play the Atlanta Falcons to begin the sprint toward Minneapolis and Super Bowl 52. Nonetheless, it is going to be important for them to move the ball through the air. The Falcons converted a 4th-and-6 with a 20-yard pass from Ryan to Jones, but the Eagles wouldn't let them score on the drive. The key for the Eagles is to make sure that their third-down plays are third and five or less because the Falcons have had trouble in some games getting off the field on third down.

Blount's touchdown run came on a fourth down play, after Eagles quarterback Nick Foles recovered a fumble on a botched third down run. LeGarrette Blount is the team's leading rusher, but Jay Ajayi is the most talented. Of course, the Eagles missed the extra-point try.

Foles heated up after a poor first half, but the Eagles settled for field goals after two long drives in the second half. The drive started at Philadelphia's 7-yard line, and the Eagles advanced 74 yards in 12 plays. The Falcons, defending NFC champs, will have the advantage in quarterback Matt Ryan, who has had postseason success.

Divisional playoff weekend, which many believe to be the greatest of the National Football League season, kicks off Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia - where the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles play host to the sixth-seeded Atlanta Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field. I can only imagine how motivated they are to reach the Super Bowl for the second year in a row and erase the shock of last year's overtime loss to New England, in which they frittered away a 25-point lead.

So what difference did Carson Wentz's season-ending ACL injury make? The Eagles' offensive line, running backs and a stingy defense rallied around the team's signal-caller, too.

But for that touchdown catch, Freeman was held to seven yards on 10 rushing carries and had a meagre 26 yards in the passing game. The Eagles will host the championship game at Lincoln Financial Field next Sunday against the victor of the New Orleans Saints-Minnesota Vikings divisional game on Sunday.
