Where Is The Fan Buzz For The Eagles-Falcons Playoff Game?

Where Is The Fan Buzz For The Eagles-Falcons Playoff Game?

Okay, Tennessee does have a stud in Derrick Henry, who thrashed the KC defense last week for 156 yards in the upset of the Chiefs on the road. At one point, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown to himself.

The Atlanta Falcons went into Los Angeles and stopped the explosive Rams pairing of Jared Goff and Todd Gurley. In the Eagles' 26-24 loss to the New Orleans Saints back in 2013, Foles completed 69 percent of his passes and threw two touchdown passes and left the game with the lead before Saints quarterback Drew Brees drove his team to the game-winning field goal. Cam Newton did his thing throwing for 349 yards and adding 37 on the ground.

Bortles, in particular, struggled in a 10-3 win over the Buffalo Bills. It was so bad I just don't want to talk about it. The Falcons are traveling into Philadelphia. The Eagles had a great season, but their MVP; Carson Wentz; tore his ACL at the end of the season. With the right game plan, Nick Foles can make Atlanta pay when they stack the box.

Normally I wouldn't pick against the Vikings at home, but this Saints team is going to go all the way. The Falcons offense is slowly heating up, never sleep on Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

Tennessee (+13) at New England, Saturday - The Patriots are rested.


Expect a shootout in the best game of the week when the two best teams in the NFC face-off. "... This scheme has a certain uniqueness to the coverages they play, but even within that scheme they play it slightly different than everybody else". Reid is the 11th-winningest coach of all time with a record of 183-120-1 in the regular season (.604 win percentage).

Jenkins, who won a Super Bowl as a rookie with New Orleans in 2009, is among only 25 players on the 53-man roster with postseason experience.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are listed as 7.5-point favorites against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a 41 total in Sunday's early matchup. This doesn't really look like a great game because the Jaguars offense lacks with Blake Bortles under center, but the defense is outstanding. Disappointed that such a promising season ended abruptly, but not surprised. The secondary is also underrated thanks to three solid corners in Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford and Brian Poole (who was outstanding from a tackling standpoint last week in the win over the Rams), as well as a thumper in Keanu Neal at strong safety. Bouye has allowed only 38 catches on 84 targets including six interceptions. Ben Roethlisberger and company need to watch themselves, and not get too cocky going into this one; the floor can collapse on them at any time. Those opponents include the Rams, who owned the No. 1 scoring offense in the National Football League this year, the Panthers, the Vikings, the Saints (twice) and the Buccaneers.

Don't lose hope if you're an Eagles fan though. The only thing holding the Vikings back is quarterback Case Keenum.

Philadelphia had already secured home-field advantage before being shut out in Week 17 against Dallas, so an uninspired performance on that day can be excused.
