In his second year as a pro, Foles threw 27 touchdown passes and just two interceptions in helping the Eagles make the playoffs.
Derrick Henry gives them a chance. The Chiefs blew a 21-3 halftime lead and lost 22-21.
The final score, 26-13, doesn't exactly suggest a blowout. Also, I believe we were fortunate to draw Atlanta as the No. 6 seed instead of facing the No. 4 seed New Orleans Saints, who will be traveling to Minnesota to square off with the Vikings. Cam Newton did his thing throwing for 349 yards and adding 37 on the ground. Buy this spread up to 3.5 to be safe and take Philly.
I just don't see it happening.
The Divisional matchups should be interesting, but there are a couple snoozers. Wentz suffered an ACL tear in Week 14 that sent him to the injured reserve.
Because of their defense, their running game and the chip on their shoulder, I'm going with the Eagles. The Falcons offense is slowly heating up, never sleep on Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.
Meanwhile, the New England Patriots are 13.5-point favorites against the Tennessee Titans with a 47.5 total in the late Saturday matchup. Expect this to be a tight, physical game.
"If they stack eight in the box, we have to make plays on the outside", Jeffery said. He was around for only about half of the regular season. Their players really swarm to the ball.
A very interesting matchup is the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Bing's National Football League predictions use team and player statistics and web activity to build a statistical model that takes into account historical data and real-time information (like injuries, suspensions, and lineup changes). In the five games in which Sanu scored this season, Jones was kept out of end zone. One can attack those defensive tackles & line-backers and have success, but it requires discipline and patience from the opposition. On the other side, Ramsey has only allowed 47 catches on 92 targets including four interceptions. You'll see. And for the doubters, they can climb on board, too. Their defense is better at defense than the Falcons offense is at offense. Considering that Goff was in the USA sportsbook MVP discussion this season, there's no doubt that Foles has a tough task ahead of him. Case Keenum has been shockingly effective for the Vikes and the RB tandem of Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon has offset the loss of rookie Dalvin Cook. He's shown flashes at times, but deep down, he is still an average backup QB.
Philadelphia had already secured home-field advantage before being shut out in Week 17 against Dallas, so an uninspired performance on that day can be excused.
