Eagles first No. 1 seed to begin as underdog

Matt Ryan misses Falcons practice due to 'personal matter' Eagles first No. 1 seed to begin as underdog

And I stand by that. The Eagles brought in cornerback Ronald Darby for matchups such as this, though they generally prefer to play sides, not to have a corner follow a wideout around the formation. But since they know they don't have much to worry about from Foles, they'll just load the box to stop the run. The kind of things a playoff quarterback must do to win. The Atlanta defense is playing well right now, and Foles is not.

Despite what he has said publicly, Foles looks like a player severely lacking in confidence. Not only did they enter Week 17 without a playoff berth in hand, but they had to play in the wild card round, adding an extra game to the docket. The Titans coach, who was nearly fired by his team - or at least had rumors percolating about his potential departure - will probably be miffed about being counted out in this one too, especially when he's going up against the two guys - Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia - who are going to be coaching on the other side. Maybe it's him, maybe it's a change in offensive coordinators. Below are their regular-season marks and ranks for Passing NEP per drop back and Success Rate.

Oddsmakers have installed the Eagles as three-point underdogs against the Atlanta Falcons in Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game, according to ProFootballTalk's Michael David Smith. On December 8 the Eagles were 10-2.

Devonta Freeman averaged 3.7 yards on the ground and Tevin Coleman just 2.9. The Atlanta defense held the Rams to just a field goal in the second half. And since Foles only completed 4-of-11 passes for 39 yards in the handful of minutes he played in his last game (one where the Eagles rested their key players for the coming postseason) there is an impression Philadelphia, who were 13-3 in 2017, are going to be trampled by the Falcons. The Penn Charter alum went 21 for 30 for 218 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The Eagles' threesome of Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood rushed for 208 yards. They were third in the National Football League in rushing yards per game this season. And even if the run game is not popping early, Doug Pederson must stay with it.

2016 Highlights/Results: Eagles' Carson Wentz threw for 231 yards and running back Ryan Matthews rushed for 109 yards and two touchdowns as the Eagles defeated the Falcons, 24-15. Both times, however, Atlanta suffered losses to Philadelphia, a team that featured former quarterback Donovan McNabb and running back Brian Westbrook on offense and a defense anchored by Brian Dawkins and Corey Simon, to name a few.

Having the Falcons be favored would imply that their odds of advancing to the NFC Championship game would be greater than 50%.

The Falcons ended the season ranked ninth in total defense (318), 12th in pass defense (214), 9th in rush defense (104) and limited their opponents to almost 20 points per game. Julio Jones will get his but they can't let him go off.

Ryan plays his home games, and one in division away game, in a dome.
