The Eagles might be historic underdogs in their divisional round game

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery plans to make the best of his playoff debut

The Patriots have quickly tied their AFC divisional playoff game against the Tennessee Titans. After losing a fumble on the opening drive, Ajayi was a workhorse early on, racking up 58 of Philly's first 60 yards including 49 on the ground in the first quarter. The Titans have not won in New England since 1993 and that's when the franchise called themselves the Houston Oilers. Foles and running back Corey Clement mishandled the handoff, and Foles actually pounced on the ball and dived into the end zone.

"We're 13-3, we have the best record in football, home-field advantage throughout". In fact, the Eagles might achieve something that no No. 1 seed has done before, but no in a good way.

However, on a fourth and goal from the 2-yard-line, Matt Ryan's pass sailed over the head of Julio Jones to lift the Eagles into next week's NFC Championship - their first playoff wins since 2008.

Philadelphia will play host to the victor of Sunday's game between New Orleans and Minnesota.

The Falcons, of course, memorably blew a 28-3 second-half lead to the Patriots in last year's Super Bowl. "That was it. Our team never wavered", Foles said to NBC's Michele Tafoya after the 15-10 win at the Linc.

Even wideout Nelson Agholor contributed on the ground, his 21-yard inside run leading to a freakish near touchdown as Foles fumbled handing off to Corey Clement, recovered himself and fell short of the goalline with a lunge after recovering. Eagles kicker Jake Elliott, who crushed the Giants (and maybe their season) with a 61-yard field goal in September, missed the extra point.

The logistics of bringing in a third quarterback at that point are hard. A second-quarter Atlanta punt grazed Brian Braman's leg to give the Falcons the ball back on the Eagles' 18 with 7:31 left in the half. The Eagles have a strong defense and the key will be the Eagles' ability to gang tackle and limit the Falcons' explosive play making abilities.

His mother, 68-year-old Lydia Nicholson, had entered to check on him after hearing him yelling while playing his game. Friday afternoon at the home, a woman who identified herself at Matthew Nicholson's sister politely declined comment.

On the sack after the Eagles kicked the ball out of bounds: "They had a free-safety pressure off the right side". Certainly, they weren't going to take time away from Foles at that point to rush to get a third quarterback up to speed.

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor ran 21 yards on an inside counter on third-and-3 to the Falcons 3. But Ajayi fumbled on the next play with Keanu Neal recovering.

Blount took a pitch and scored on the next play. "A great team win overall, Gronkowski said".

The only other Eagles player listed as questionable is rookie cornerback Sidney Jones. Jay Ajayi had 873 yards rushing and one TD combined with the Dolphins and Eagles.

Quarterback Nick Foles helped top-seeded Philadelphia, which was a three-point underdog, beat the Falcons 15-10.

The Eagles defense will also have to rise to the occasion given the offense's struggles without injured QB Carson Wentz. Nick Foles makes his fourth start.

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.
