Falcons vs. Eagles in Divisional Round match-up

Matt Ryan misses Falcons practice due to 'personal matter' Falcons vs. Eagles in Divisional Round match-up
Marlene Weaver | 09 January, 2018, 03:14

After a convincing wild-card win over the Rams, the Falcons travel to Philadelphia for the divisional round of the playoffs Saturday afternoon.

Despite going 13-3 this season, running away with their division and securing the top seed in the NFC, the Eagles have opened as 2.5-point underdogs for their divisional round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons next Saturday.

The Falcons will now play the top-seeded Eagles next week in a divisional round matchup. But when Schwartz had a rare chance at his news conference to discuss Atlanta's ground game, he made sure to hammer home a point. However, Nick Foles will be taking the snaps on Saturday, which is why Las Vegas has decided to make the Eagles the underdog on their home field.

If Carson Wentz were healthy, the spread would obviously be much different. Aaron Rodgers proceeded to complete 26 of his 31 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns in his torching of Atlanta.

Look for Falcons coach Dan Quinn and first-year defensive coordinator Marquand Manuel to put together a game plan for the Falcons to get after Foles in hopes of disrupting the Eagles' offense and the Falcons moving one step closer to playing for a Super Bowl in 2018. "So we have to look at it that way, that there's going to be a lot of challenges this week". "There's no reason not to be confident". That is, assuming Foles can elude the pressure and even get a pass off. In their final game, they put that inconsistency on display, hitting big plays one minute and making glaring mistakes the next.

The touchdown reception was the seventh for Jones in eight postseason games.

Atlanta has playoff experience, and they're on a roll right now. Veteran quarterback Matt Ryan is having a strong year throwing for 4,095 yards and 20 touchdowns to 12 interceptions, but these numbers pale in comparison to his 2016 MVP season when he threw for 4,944 yards and 38 touchdowns to eight interceptions. Jones caught 10 passes for 135 yards, but he was targeted 16 times, and he didn't score a touchdown.

Ryan returns to his home state of Pennsylvania on Saturday, where he grew up in Exton, 32 miles west of Philadelphia. The majority of the Eagles' starters also did not play in their season finale.

In the aforementioned weather conditions, Ryan has had some success. In temperatures between 40 and 60, Ryan has career statistics of a 65.4% completion rate, averaging 268.5 yards per game with 44 touchdowns and 17 interceptions. Yes, a defender was applying pressure to Clay, but a good receiver holds onto that one and makes it 7-0. This is the metric we use to track the efficiency of both teams and players with the team totals being adjusted for the strength of opponent.

A year ago, the Atlanta Falcons' run to the Super Bowl, which ended in a heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots, came largely on the back of the team's potent passing attack. They were not asked to do as much when Wentz was running the offense.
