Jay Ajayi, Eagles Run Game Shoulder Offensive Load In Win


Instead, he just grinned that goofy grin and said that's not who he is. And the Falcons would play with a guy with a legendary nickname and at least some career achievements to match. "You just have to play". You wanted Nate Sudfeld to start?

The Falcons, desperate for a shot at redemption after losing last year's Super Bowl to the New England Patriots after leading 28-3, blew a late chance to take the lead as the Eagles held on.

"Biggest emotion is for the team, for the guys, the resiliency, backs against the wall, people discounting us", Pederson said. "Because it doesn't matter. Us running backs we just had to run hard", Ajayi said after the 15-10 victory.

The Eagles then put together their best drive, an 80-yarder covering 14 plays, yet again faltered close to the end zone. "I don't need to say anything to anyone except it doesn't matter".

Foles, a basketball superstar in high school, played the role of unheralded point guard on the field Saturday, grinding and facilitating.

The Eagles' defense dominated in their 15-10 home NFC divisional playoff win over the Falcons on Saturday night. Well, you are in luck as the Eagles have just announced that tickets will be going on sale this week! "It's about the players in that dressing room".

But unlike in 2014, when Foles was the starter all season, his redemption in 2018 as the maligned fill-in for Carson Wentz was spectacular in relation.

He played in the final regular-season game against the Dallas Cowboys and recorded two tackles. Like all parts of the organization with Thomas and I, we assess and see how we can do things better.

"We used it for motivation, who's picking who", Johnson said, noting that he and Long went on Amazon during the week to order their hound headgear. "There was a lot of outside noise". There's going to be criticism. But we blocked that out. "We blocked it out".

Nick Foles completed three passes to Alshon Jeffery for 46 yards on the drive, including a 21-yard gain on third-and-8 to extend it.

The pass was incomplete and the Eagles took control of the ball to seal the game. Nick did a great job moving us down the field and setting us up. "Stayed committed to the run, obviously, and that helps. Their fans, we're expecting a loud crowd in a big playoff game".

"He did a really nice job executing the game plan how we and how I know Nick can". "He didn't rattle", Ajayi said. "You want the ball in your hand". "We prepared and felt ready". I think that is probably a big difference in this year, where however we have to play to win, we're equipped to do that.

The Eagles will host the victor of the New Orleans Saints-Minnesota Vikings next week in the NFC Championship Game.

Whether it is the Vikings or the Saints, the Eagles defence might be on the field too much and the game could get away from Philadelphia despite the benefit of home-field advantage. "It's been a insane ride, and I'm excited that I get to do it with these guys".
