Jay Ajayi, Eagles Run Game Shoulder Offensive Load In Win

Jay Ajayi, Eagles Run Game Shoulder Offensive Load In Win

The world counted them out.

Foles outplayed Ryan, bouncing back from a pair of subpar games with an efficient performance. But Jones didn't come down with the ball.

That was exemplified against the Eagles (14-3), who like the Falcons sputtered in the red zone.

The Eagles' defense dominated in their 15-10 home NFC divisional playoff win over the Falcons on Saturday night.

Foles, behind stellar play from the offensive line and excellent play calling from Pederson, finished with 246 yards on 23-of-30 passing (100.1 passer rating) and was sacked just once (and that came in the game's first 10 minutes). Foles' terrible overthrow should have been picked easily, but Neal mistimed the ball and it caromed off his knee and right into the hands of Eagles receiver Torrey Smith for a fluky 20-yard gain. He didn't have any touchdowns. After Foles threw deep into the wind, the ball twisting, turning and nearly ending up on Darien Street, Ajayi fumbled the ball away on his first carry, at the 26-yard line of the Falcons. On a fourth-quarter drive that started at the Philadelphia 17-yard line, he hit Jay Ajayi for three yards, Ajayi again for 32 yards, Zach Ertz for 11 yards, Nelson Agholor for 10 and Mack Hollins for nine.

Desouches claimed the recall was complex and rejected the suggestion that Systéme U had taken too long to respond. Le Maire fired harsh criticism against Lactalis before the press conference, calling it a "failing company".

Atlanta efficiently mixed runs and passes to drive to Matt Bryant's 33-yard field goal for an early lead.

After going three and out on their first possession of the third quarter, the Birds bounced back on their second drive.

While Foles did not turn the ball over on Saturday, he also did not throw a touchdown pass and did little to instil much confidence in Philadelphia's offence. It was initially called a touchdown, but a review showed he was a half yard shy. He was originally ruled to have scored, but replays confirmed Foles was down at the 1. The Falcons also gifted the Eagles 63 yards worth of pass interference calls of their own in the first two series of the game. He led two impressive drives, one into the wind and one with it. Foles made a big-time 15-yard throw to Alshon Jeffery with 1 second left in the first half to set up Jake Elliott's 53-yard field goal that cut Atlanta's lead to 10-9. A Foles pass went off the knee of a leaping Keanu Neal and the ball caromed back to Eagles receiver Torrey Smith. The decision to attempt a field goal, instead of going for it, lowered the Eagles' chance to win by 1%. It was impressive considering the Eagles are the most efficient team in the National Football League in the red zone this season at 65 percent, 72 percent at home. "Often times you may get it man-to-man in those scenarios". On third and long, Ryan found Mohamed Sanu on a comeback route, but a review overturned the play. That, Ryan was unable to do when, on fourth-and-goal at the two, he rolled to his right and lofted a balloon toward Julio Jones who was smothered by Jalen Mills.

Ryan was hardly dominant, going 22-of-36 for 210 yards and one touchdown.
