WHO YA GOT? Pick the winners of the NFL Divisional round

Coach Doug Pederson wants Foles to get back to being aggressive and letting it rip.

That would explain largely why the Eagles are the first team in National Football League history to be an underdog as the number one seed. The next he was on a cart, an air cast around his left leg, being driven up the Coliseum driveway and out of sight. In the 24-10 Eagles victory, Falcons quarterback Michael Vick was sacked four times.

Foles stepped into the leading role when outstanding young signal caller Carson Wentz went down for the season with a torn ACL in December. He is also on the sidelines pregame, zipping around on crutches.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn seemed to search for a polite term to compare Eagles fans with the fans the team heard in last week's wild-card win at the Los Angeles Rams. "Nobody's going to go out there - and I don't care if you're down, if you're up - like no one is going to quit. When I play my best and I'm most comfortable, I just go out there and play".

However, I'm not sold on the offense, as they're kicking too many field goals, and this will come back to haunt them against superior opposition.

The Eagles are the No. 1 seed in the playoffs, but Vegas has them listed as underdogs in this matchup with the Falcons. Even though Foles started off hot with a four-touchdown performance against the New York Giants in Week 15, the quarterback's play against the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys to close out the season was far from impressive.

The Green Bay Packers aren't here, but they've kept things entertaining for us the past couple of weeks.

The production has fallen off, as have the expectations for this team externally.

The lowest rating the Rams had in St. Louis for a postseason game while they were based in the Gateway City was 34.1. Philadelphia will slow Atlanta's ground game, create pressure on Matt Ryan up the middle and force the Falcons into some third-and-long situations, where secondary options like Mohamed Sanu and Austin Hooper won't be quite as effective as they otherwise would be.

Inside the building, the Eagles remain defiant. They did have a 13-3 record, but the competition they played this season has not been great. "Both teams like to run it, and both teams are good defending the run". Defensively, the Falcons yielded 20.3 points and 323.1 total yards (217.9 in passing and 105.2 in rushing) per game.

The most obvious topic for this column is the Eagles and their playoff chances, and one would think there would be plenty to say on that subject.

To Manuel, it's a sign of a player who knows how to orchestrate a defense. Games are not going to stop. "Our mindset is we all we got". Listen, the train is still kind of moving - even though we're sick to our stomachs that these guys aren't with us out there on the field - the train's still moving.

"What they're saying is, 'Hey, we're going to show you what we're doing.' That's their mentality", Foles said.
