Eagles use goal-line stand, field goals to beat Falcons in playoffs

I'm not saying he's terrible, but I'm far from comfortable with him, especially with Foles as kind of a statue back there.

Vaitai allowed this season, so I agree he's a concern. This wasn't the play that decided the game, but it was undoubtedly a play that gave the Eagles a chance to win it later. It makes sense the Eagles would be extra careful with their second-round draft pick considering he was already coming off a serious injury. They have won four of their last five games including the playoff game.

A cagey first quarter featured just one score, Matt Bryant's 33-yard field goal following an 11-play drive by the Falcons. It's a speedy, athletic group that borrows numerous concepts head coach Dan Quinn used in Seattle and will typically load the box with eight players and dare fill-in Eagles QB Nick Foles to beat it.

"We're the underdogs", Johnson said. That's the life that you kind of live as a competitor.

Badly strained United Kingdom hospitals to delay non-urgent procedures
NHS bosses have fined the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust £28,800 for the failings. She added: "Patient safety is being compromised - there's no doubt about that".

A first half touchdown from running back LeGarrette Blount and three field goals from rookie kicker Jake Elliott was enough to see the Eagles home on a frigid night at Lincoln Financial Field. He never has been, and he never will be. Its the most for a tight end.

Because of his inability to create separation, it is imperative that Jeffery be on the same page with his quarterback, or he's simply not going to be a very effective player.

It's the Eagles' first trip to the conference championship since the 2008 season ended in the desert with a loss to the Arizona Cardinals. That's not Foles, nor should it be. In the second half, however, he looked more like the quarterback we saw late against the Rams and in the following week's win over the Giants. It also takes timing, a strong arm, and confidence to make those throws. It's always about the ball, and I didn't do a good job protecting the ball tonight.

Foles did little to ease the nerves of this football-mad city in a forgettable first half in which he badly overthrew receivers, feebly missed his targets, and was fortunate to go into the locker room down 10-9 to the defending Super Bowl runners-up.

Israel PM arrives in Delhi, to be received by Modi at airport
He is the second Israeli prime minister to visit India in the last 25 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The Israeli PM will be accompanied by a 130-member delegation from various sectors including cyber, agriculture and defence.

Coach Doug Pederson acknowledged that his team is the underdog against the Falcons. Right now, Nick Foles might be all they got. Chip, what do you think?

Foles didn't throw any touchdown passes and, at times early in the game, he looked like the Foles we saw in the final two regular-season games - maybe worse. However, your point about their linebackers being undersized is well taken.

Sometimes in those moments, proclamations such as that seem hollow, but for some reason coming from the Pro Bowl special teams player, playing in just his second season in the National Football League, it felt real. The newcomer would have like six weeks in the offensive system. I ended up on the ground when I came out of my route. "We all stuck together and believed we could move the ball".

Wentz tore his anterior cruciate ligament on December 10 and has been out since, and the Eagles offense has struggled with Nick Foles at the helm.

Colquitt County linebacker JJ Peterson commits to Vols
Two other of his former Colquitt County defensive teammates, Ja'Quain Barkley and Shawn Shamburger, now play for Tennessee. Now Alabama's former defensive coordinator, Pruitt experienced an unprecedented month for a college football coach.

The logistics of bringing in a third quarterback at that point are hard. "A lot of guys have been to the Super Bowl, so they can really wrap and embrace the younger guys and bring them along, sure". But if he can turn in two more performances like this, he might be all they need.
