Falcons vs. Eagles Odds: Point Spread, Total & Prediction

Share
Underdog Eagles Love Proving People Wrong

They were able to hold the high powered New Orleans Saints rushing attack to only 86 rushing yards a few weeks ago.

The defending NFC champions came into the game as three-point favourites but failed to convert on fourth and goal with just over a minute remaining to hand the Eagles the win.

The Falcons took over at the Eagles 18 after a short punt hit a Philadelphia player in a crowd and was recovered by LaRoy Reynolds.

For the first time in playoff history, a No. 1 seed is an underdog.

Foles was 5-for-7 for 70 yards on the 12-play, 74-yard march that led to Elliott's go-ahead field goal with 11 seconds left in the third quarter.

The offense looked great in a 34-29 win over the New York Giants in Week 15, and backup signal-caller Nick Foles threw four touchdown passes.

In 2013, Nick Foles had a banner year throwing 27 TDs and 2 INTs, but sadly that was at the apex of his National Football League career.

Prediction: This game will be decided the way most games are and that's in the trenches. They have also finished third Rushing Yards/Game with 132.2 yards. He has completed 54 percent of his passes when under pressure, yet is sacked only eight percent of the time when pressured.

After its goal-line stand, Philadelphia ran out the final 58 seconds of its 15-10 victory to secure a spot in next week's NFC championship game, one victory from reaching Super Bowl LII. In fact, when Jay Ajayi was still playing for the Dolphins, he broke tackle after tackle against the Atlanta defense.

Atlanta's 2017 season wasn't quite spectacular as its 2016 run, however, it may be just as impressive.

The Eagles frankly were lucky to only be trailing 10-9 at halftime. Nonetheless, it is going to be important for them to move the ball through the air.

The Falcons also possess more postseason experience than the Birds. That was right after Foles had to fall on a fumble the play before, a pretty fortunate turn of events. If Freeman can consistently make Bradham miss or add on extra yards after contact, it will give a big boost to an Atlanta offense that will need every advantage it can get. The Eagles drove 37 yards in 46 seconds, thanks to a wild dropped interception by the Falcons' Keanu Neal.

Andre: Falcons. Since December, the Eagles are 26th in yards-per-play differential.

Saturday's schedule starts at 4:35 p.m. EST when Atlanta visits Philadelphia on NBC.

Since the Eagles lost Carson Wentz to an ACL tear, their odds of winning have gone down. Ajayi had 49 rush yards on seven first-quarter carries, but the Eagles' run game stalled after that, netting 47 yards the remainder of the game. "Nick, this is, what, his fourth game?"
