Ajayi ready to give Eagles a ride on Jay Train vs Falcons

With AP Photos.Quarterback Matt Ryan has another shot at a happy homecoming.

Julio Jones is in the midst of a great string of games against Philadelphia.

"I had a chance as a player to be on some championship teams and a couple of Super Bowl teams (as a backup quarterback in Green Bay)", Pederson said Thursday. I've seen him play enough.

Expect a shootout in the best game of the week when the two best teams in the NFC face-off.

The Eagles had just 19 rushing first downs in their final four games and didn't have a rushing touchdown in their last six games.

"Anytime you understand that there's really no tomorrow after Saturday, it's always going to heighten your tempo a little bit, your urgency to make sure we're on everything", Ajayi said. I think they're playing very well in the secondary, some difference coverages than maybe what we saw a year ago, but for the most part similar.

After posting the best record in the NFC, earning the No. 1 seed and fighting through injuries to almost every one of their top players - including of course Carson Wentz, Jason Peters and Jordan Hicks (not to mention Fletcher Cox, Darren Sproles, Ronald Darby and more) - the Birds are getting no respect. He's certainly a drop-off from Wentz, but he's also capable of spectacular performances.

The jury is split on Nick Foles and whether he can handle the postseason pressure or not. He had four TDs in his first start in Week 15.

The Eagles went the opposite direction, losing their next five to be eliminated from postseason contention, before winning their last two.

"NORTHEAST" NOISE: There's crowd noise, and then there's the noise generated by Philadelphia fans known for their intensity. They'll have a say in this, I know they will. "That's where it all starts, coming off the ball, the cadence and stuff like that".

While the Saints are used to playing in a dome, they won't have the crowd on their side, and New Orleans has lost its past three road games. The Titans upset last weekend made a few believers (or wishful thinkers) that they could do the same traveling to Foxboro. "I think that is good". Agholor was plagued by dropped passes in 2016, along with many other Eagles' wide receivers, and he reached a big low point when he finished the 2016 matchup versus the Seattle Seahawks with zero receptions for zero yards and dropped a pass that looked like it would've been a 40-yard reception for a touchdown.

"Now it's kind of in our DNA", cornerback Jalen Mills said. The second-year pro is confident he can contain Jones again. Ronald Darby is even shorter than that.

You talk about running back Jay Ajayi being more of a factor, and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz's ornery group hounding Matt Ryan and slowing running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

"I think having this time to self-scout. you realize, 'Hey, just go out there and play.' Maybe I wasn't doing that as much those games". They have multiple backs for multiple situation. This lead to him running for 88 yards and leading the team since Buffalo was selling out to stop running back Leonard Fournette. Zach Ertz is tied for 2nd among NFL TEs with 8 TDs and ranked 3rd with 824 yards receiving.
