Analytics: Nick Foles making a return trip to the playoffs

Doug Pederson's New Playoff Demeanor

Atlanta Falcons: 5 Bold predictions for Divisional Round vs. Eagles

The Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles have made some National Football League betting line history on a weekend where the recent trends have seen favorites win and away teams get the cover. Defensively, the Eagles are yielding 18.4 points and 306.5 total yards (227.3 in passing and 79.2 in rushing) per game. "It comes down to us versus them".

"I'm done talking about it".

Choosing winners and losers in the postseason is sometimes a careful balance of educated guesses and wishful thinking.

Despite their denials to the contrary, the Birds are motivated by the apparent disrespect. The Philadelphia Eagles, themselves haven't said it, nor do they like the implication that they've got no shot. We're trying not to get out of character. The number one seed is projected to lose to the sixth seed. Austin Hooper and Taylor Gabriel had combined for 869 yards and four touchdowns. He also didn't look sharp In an abbreviated performance against the Dallas Cowboys, going 4-of-11 for 39 yards and one interception.

Foles has already proven he can sling it, evidenced by the 27 touchdowns against two interceptions he threw in 2013 when Chip Kelly was the Eagles' coach.

Transferts - Thiago Silva : "Pastore veut partir"
Il n'en fallait pas moins pour remettre un peu d'huile sur un feu qui avait déjà bien pris. Mais le capitaine du vestiaire parisien tient à différencier les cas.


Pederson wants Foles to be himself, he said.

"My message to Nick is: Listen, we have a great opportunity". Just go be Nick. The one that surrendered 29 points to the New York Giants in Week 15 or the one that registered five takeaways against the Oakland Raiders in Week 16? There are a lot of teams who are very good.

It's not like the former Arizona star doesn't have playoff experience. Marcus Mariota and Derrick Henry were good last week and they need to be even better this week.

"But blitz is really all about guys winning one-on-ones, and when you do that, then your blitz game is going to be effective and I'm not just talking about one-on-ones in pass rush, but I'm talking about one-on-ones in coverage, too". "Whether they're having a run or a pass play, you've just got to think the ball is coming to him".

"After that game was over, I was upset, but I was thinking this could happen three or four more times in my career", Celek told NBC Sports Philadelphia on Tuesday. It's as simple as that.

Facebook updates News Feed to make friends a priority
Facebook constantly tweaks its computer algorithms to maintain interest in its news feed, the company's main attention-getter. And many publishers have already noticed a decrease in organic Facebook traffic over the previous year or so.


It's hard to overlook the energy that Eagles fans will bring, the week off that Eagles players had and the chip the team will have on its shoulder after being listed as an underdog. He still was with the Miami Dolphins in Week 5 when he put up 130 yards on 26 carries in a 20-17 win over the Falcons. He averaged five yards per carry.

That said it is also true that he is a back-up quarterback who is a huge downgrade from Carson Wentz.

Albeit the Falcons are favored to win, the Eagles will provide a challenge.

Jenkins and injured running back Darren Sproles played for the Saints. "That's all you need to say". "So, that's something I think we always talk about, and obviously you could see it in that game against Kansas City". That's not going to change. "He can make big plays", Foles said.

The Eagles and Falcons take the field at Lincoln Financial at 4:35 pm on Saturday.
