NFC Underdogs – EaglesFanCast 233

The NFC Divisional Playoffs at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia had all the markers that the underdog Eagles would be beaten by the Atlanta Falcons at home. The Vegas oddsmakers thought so, the sports analysts thought so.

The trouble for all of them, and the Falcons, was the Eagles organization and fans didn’t think so.

The Eagles go on to beat the Falcons 15-10 in what was a Defensive struggle throughout. The fans in the stadium were louder than I’ve ever heard them, they stepped up, and believed. Coach Doug Pederson worked up a game plan that worked. Nick Foles did what Nick Foles does, and didn’t try to be Carson Wentz. The Offensive Line was in control, protected Foles, and moved the Defense for the runners. The Eagles Defense, though, stepped up huge. The scheme met what the Falcons threw at them. They kept the defending NFC Champions to only ten points in a playoff game. Think about that.

Now the Eagles are playing, at home, in the NFC Championship.

This Sunday evening, the Eagles invite the Minnesota Vikings into The Linc. The Eagles will be underdogs again.

Divisional Playoff Game Underdogs – EaglesFanCast 232

Here we go, the playoffs. Home game. The Atlanta Falcons. The Eagles fans will be ready in Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles are the underdogs?

Yes, yes they are. For the first time in recent memory, the number one seed in the NFC, playing at home, are the underdogs.

This underlines the fact that no other team, right now, respects the Eagles, or what they have done this season. The rest of the league now believes that the Eagles were no more than our injured quarterback Carson Wentz.

They forget that the Eagles Defense was 4th in the league in total yards per game, 1st in the league in total yards per game, and the takeaway ratio is near the top.

Our Offense? Third in the league in rushing yards per game, and still 13th in the league in passing despite Carson going down. Total Offense yards per game? Seventh. This team is solid.

There are three factors in this game: 1. Nick Foles, which Nick shows up? 2. Offensive line protection for Foles. 3. A Defensive attack that stops the run and harasses Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Either way, we want to see a good game, a fun game.
