Eagles hold off Falcons to reach NFC title game

The Falcons are favored to win in part due to Carson Wentz, the Eagles stellar quarterback, out with a knee injury. The Falcons are a dome team.

The Falcons put together an 11-play drive that eventually stalled at the Eagles' 15-yard line. The Eagles are in the top five for 3rd down defense, takeaways, and turnover differential. Atlanta played at Lincoln Financial Field last season and lost.

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. His outdoor stadium record is 34-29. Foles and running back Corey Clement mishandled the handoff, and Foles actually pounced on the ball and dived into the end zone. Both star players are expected to start on Saturday as they look to build on their wild card victory and a potential trip to the NFC Championship for the second straight season. Additionally, they are 5-1 at home in the postseason since the 2008 season, the second-best record in the National Football League in that time (min. five games).

Next Sunday, the Eagles will host either Minnesota or New Orleans for the conference crown.

Wedbush Weighs in on Activision Blizzard, Inc's Q4 2016 Earnings (ATVI)
The insider JACOBS M CHRISTINE sold $157,500. 1 is equivalent to a Strong Buy rating, 3 a hold rating, and 5 a Strong Sell rating. Stifel Nicolaus maintained Activision Blizzard, Inc . (NASDAQ: ATVI ) earned "Buy" rating by Benchmark on Monday, November 7.

The Eagles took a 12-10 lead with 15 seconds left in the third quarter when Elliott hit a 37-yard field goal to complete a 12-play, 74-yard drive.

Under-the-radar potential X factor: Keanu Neal, Vic Beasley, Deion Jones, Desmond Trufant and Grady Jarrett get most of the love on that Atlanta defense, but watch for No. 2 corner Robert Alford. He didn't go down at the first point of contact.

- The Jaguars won four road games this season. The Eagles have a strong defense and the key will be the Eagles' ability to gang tackle and limit the Falcons' explosive play making abilities. Philadelphia tips and intercepts balls and is generally more impactful.

Foles bounced back from a pair of subpar games with a steady performance. That would be the end of Atlanta's quest for Super Bowl redemption. However, this team has struggled with adversity all year. If that didn't happen, Philly would not have picked up Jay Ajayi, who is the modern day "beast mode". The Eagles missed the extra point following that score.

Then Pederson, showing off his aggressiveness, went for it on fourth-and-goal and LeGarrette Blount, thanks to good blocks from Brandon Brooks and Trey Burton, gave the Eagles a 6-3 lead. The feed was a mix of celebration on Philadelphia's end and a comedic dose of reality from Falcons fans having to face the fact that their precious Dirty Birds have avoided bringing the Lombardi Trophy back home once again.
