Nick Foles used Eagles bye week to go back to basics

Nick Foles used Eagles bye week to go back to basics

That's why the defending NFC champions just snuck into the postseason as the No.6 seed and needed the help of a tiebreaker to do so. What an interesting statement about a man who took a team from a 9-7 season to a 13-3 season! The Eagles won the NFC East by 4 games over Dallas.

That's why Brady's Patriots and Roethlisberger's Steelers are heavy favorites to oust Mariota and Bortles in their AFC divisional matchups this weekend.

NBC 10 will provide comprehensive coverage of Eagles Game Day, beginning with "Eagles Game Plan" at noon and followed by "Eagles Road to Victory" at 12:30 p.m., "Eagles Gameday Kickoff" at 1 p.m., "NBC 10 News Playoff Special" at 1:30 p.m. and "Football Night in America" at 3:30 p.m. The Eagles scored 457 points on the season, and allowed just shy of 300.

Palestine slams United States ambassador to Israel for 'complicating road towards peace'
Ankara has strongly condemned the Israeli announcement about the construction of more than 1,100 homes in West Bank settlements. The status of Jerusalem has ignited tensions between Israelis and Palestinians for decades.

"Basically, a touchdown that they subtracted off of each game so shout out to that defense". He completed well under half his passes (23-of-49) for just 199 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

Since being traded from the Miami Dolphins, Jay Ajayi has become the team's primary ball-carrier and is expected to get plenty more in Sunday's encounter, in an effort to lessen the workload of Foles. Don't expect the Falcons' offense, which doesn't typically play outdoors in cold temperatures, to thrive on the road against this Eagles' defense.

It's also worth noting that Foles himself was terrible in the final two games of the regular season. Atlanta started out with three straight wins, but then fell into a skid and lost four of their next five. Eagles Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, Defensive End Brandon Graham, and Cornerback Jalen Mills, and Halapoulivaati Vaitai were all participating in full practice for Philadelphia on Thursday. With Matt Ryan and the red-hot Falcons coming into Lincoln Financial Field for the first time this year, Philly will do everything possible to emerge victorious and host the NFC Championship one week later. Julio Jones was his top target once again. The total has also gone over in seven of the Saints' last nine games against the Vikings. Limiting the two talented Falcons running backs will force the offense to become one dimensional. Neither player practiced Tuesday with Ryan sitting out for personal reasons and Jones missing time because of a slew of nagging injuries. The Eagles earned the tie-breaker and home field advantage up until the Super Bowl. They took care of business in Los Angeles and are favoured to beat the Eagles in Philadelphia. Sixth-seeded Atlanta hopes to have the wideout at the top of his game on Saturday when it visits the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles.
