Last-Minute Game-Winning Touchdown Slips Through Julio Jones' Hands

Eagles make Sidney Jones inactive vs. Falcons

Eagles make Sidney Jones inactive vs. Falcons

-COACHING: A-plus - Doug Pederson had a good offensive game plan that featured a lot of run-ass options that kept the Falcons' defense off balance. The way it is set up is by design, by scheme-design, a particular back might be good in a particular run-scheme, so we put that back in on certain plays. "You are going to make me cry, for us to be here right now".

Meanwhile, 53% of betting tickets are on the over for Sunday's NFC Championship but 63% of the money is on the under.

As the saying goes, defense wins championships and Philly's was more than up to the task on a chilly, windy late January afternoon in a 15-10 victory that sent the Eagles - without superstar quarterback Carson Wentz - to the NFC Championship game. Reigning NFL MVP Matt Ryan of Atlanta throws for 203 yards on 21-of-34 passing and one touchdown. He did a great job putting pressure on. Stefon Diggs caught an fantastic 61-yard touchdown after Saints quarterback Drew Brees led the Saints down the field to take a 24-23 lead with 0:29 seconds left. On the very next play, Jay Ajayi fumbles the ball and the Falcons recover. "That was it. Our team never wavered", Foles told NBC Sports. "The defense did an fantastic job. We all stuck together and believed we could move the ball". Between not running the ball more, weird calls on fourth down and the decline of the offense from its 30-plus points per game performance last season, it's hard not to point the finger at him.

In that game in front off their parents, Eric Kendricks had nine tackles, while Mychal Kendricks finished with three tackles.

The Falcons progressed to the Eagles' two-yard line but could not break through on fourth and goal - a pass to Jones slipped through his hands as Philadelphia took the game. You might think the Eagles weren't paying attention to that stuff.

Ajayi dominated the first quarter of the Eagles' 15-10 playoff win over the Falcons at the Linc with seven carries for 49 yards.

The Falcons had just four drives in the second half, two of which were three-and-outs that ended in punts.

Both teams had top 10 ranked offenses during the regular season, but it is important to note the majority of the Eagles stats were based on Wentz playing under center.

The play he chose was. odd, to say the least. The defense made a few mistakes as they let Jones slip free on a crucial 4th down play in the 4th quarter, but they held tight in one of the most thrilling goal line stances in playoff history.

The Vikings ranked No. 1 in the National Football League in defense this year, allowing just 276 yards and 15.8 points per game during the regular season.
