Are The Suspect Eagles Ready For The Battle-Tested Falcons?

The special teams component of National Football League contests is never more important than in the postseason.
To tell the truth, they aren't won by the guys over at PhiladelphiaEagles.com who put together this hype video either.
The Eagles' defense will need to carry them here, but that won't be easy against a talented Falcons offense. Here's a quick primer on the Saturday day game. Still, they are ranked fourth in both total yards allowed (306.5 total yards allowed per game) and in points (18.4 points allowed per game). In the NFC the Rams are flying high, the Falcons were just there a year ago.
Falcons at Eagles, Saturday, 4:35 p.m. on NBC The defending NFC champion Falcons backed their way into the playoffs, and then last weekend made an impressive postseason showing on the road against the Rams. In fact, it's downright disrespectful.
And let Foles do the shadow-free quarterbacking.
This is how you spin it when you lose a Carson Wentz and you are asked to defeat the defending NFC champions with Nick Foles. But the difference this season, the Falcons' defense has played better. Now Vegas and the gambling public are apparently on-board because of one game. The Eagles are built to win games in the Northeast in January, and they can overpower the Falcons.
Jones had nine receptions on 11 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown against the Rams.
The only other Eagles player listed as questionable is rookie cornerback Sidney Jones. Where has this innovative stuff been all year? Ronald Darby is even shorter than that. The Falcons employ a Cover-3 scheme as their base defense. He's ultra-athletic. He never needs to come off the field. Agholor, meanwhile, gained 752 yards while operating out of the slot - the third-most yards in the NFL. But now that it's the postseason, the running back figures to have a prominent role. If the Falcons get constant pressure on Foles and get him out of the pocket, the Falcons will win. The secondary is also underrated thanks to three solid corners in Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford and Brian Poole (who was outstanding from a tackling standpoint last week in the win over the Rams), as well as a thumper in Keanu Neal at strong safety. The Falcons, meanwhile, secured the final wild-card slot last weekend with a victory over the Carolina Panthers.

. He was actually very bad.
Now that it's here, it's a pretty good bet that Ajayi's touches will go up, especially against an Atlanta team that he has already gashed this season.
Which means the Eagles running game needs to show up in a big way.
The most engaging and jovial he has been with the media (by a mile) since being acquired by Philadelphia at the trade deadline, Ajayi shared the story behind his J-Train nickname Wednesday afternoon. This will open up holes for LeGarrette Blount and Matt Asiata.
"I haven't been here all season (he signed on November 14, 2017), but in the time I've been here, I've seen that we approach every week the same way". Last week, the Falcons had to try to contain Aaron Donald. Now, the Falcons will get an opportunity to face Ajayi once again, and their run defense has improved greatly since their first meeting.
Foles needs to be kept clean.
But he'll need them to stay true if Philadelphia is to return to the NFC Championship Game, which seemed like a shoo-in before the injury to Carson Wentz.
