Eagles' defense locks down to stop Falcons

Eagles' defense locks down to stop Falcons

Ryan, who grew up rooting for the Eagles and went to Philadelphia's William Penn Charter School, is 1-3 at the Linc. Ryan's pass to Jones on fourth-and-goal was incomplete, and the Philadelphia Eagles held on to win 15-10 to advance to the NFC Championship.

Unfortunately for Atlanta, the play was unsuccessful.

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said that he wouldn't want anyone else but Ryan to lead his team.

Quinn said he'll evaluate Sarkisian just like they evaluate all phases and coaches.

The Eagles defense needed one more stop. O-line did a great job today getting a push off the ball.

The Eagles, however, remained in touch thanks to a freakish play late in the second quarter, when Foles' pass ricocheted off Falcons safety Keanu Neal's knee and into the arms of Alshon Jeffery to put the hosts in field goal range.

They had spent 11 1/2 months trying to get back to where they were last February against the Patriots.

Moments such as the shovel pass the tried on second-and-goal, two plays earlier.

Following two penalties, the Falcons drove down the field and scored on a six-yard pass from Ryan to Devonta Freeman pushing the score to 10-6. He's going to call plays for your and get the ball in your hands. As a former defensive coordinator, I recognize that's a plan that people do employ. "We stuck with it and guys executed the game plan extremely well". Ryan danced around to buy time as Jones got up, then flipped the ball over cornerback Jalen Mills toward the five-time Pro Bowler. It appeared as though Jones was running a comeback route to the right sideline, but he slipped coming out of his break, leaving Ryan to look for a second option.

The Eagles kicked a field goal during the final second of the half after an improbable sequence. That's the life that you kind of live as a competitor. "We're certainly disappointed that we didn't go further and get the job done, but next year's a different year".

"That killed me", Ajayi said of the miscue, adding that "I didn't think I played well". We all had prepared for that play. The pair have combined for countless jaw-dropping plays in their career, and there are sure to be more to come.

The storylines surrounding this one were cemented well before kickoff: The No. 1 seed isn't favored, despite being at home and owning a 13-3 regular season mark.

The Falcons slow progress to the endzone had diehard Eagles fans cheering on a challenge on a pass completion, shouting when the Flacons made first downs, and roared when at 4th and goal the Eagles defense swooped in to prevent what could have been a game-winning touchdown for their opponents. "That's why we put in all of the hard work that we put in all of the time. When you don't get that result, it's hard". But falling short sometimes is the best motivation to keep pushing forward and trying to yearn to become a better player, to become a better team, and I've never shied away from that.

"To be honest I feel like a played poorly".

While head coach Doug Pederson had publicly supported Foles on several occasions, according to National Football League insider Ian Rappaport, they were willing to pull him if need be during Saturday's game.
