Eagles Hold On Against the Falcons to Reach the NFC Title Game

Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles: NFL playoff live updates, score, TV channel, how to watch online

The Eagles shut down Atlanta's potent offense and earned a berth in next week's NFC championship game following Saturday's triumph at Lincoln Financial Field.

But Philadelphia fans were rejoicing at the end of the match, with their side winning 15-10.

Philadelphia advances to the NFC Championship game next week against the victor of New Orleans-Minnesota who face off on Sunday. The sixth-seeded Falcons finish the year with an 11-7 record.

Trailing by five points with 5:57 left in an National Football League playoff game, the Atlanta Falcons took possession at their 24-yard line.

Atlanta, which did not have any players on the final injury report, listed Marvin Hall, Terrence Magee, Leon McFadden, Sean Weatherspoon, Sean Harlow, Austin Pasztor and Eric Saubert as inactives.

"I am very humbled to win this game and to be a part of this team", Foles said after the game.

UP - Mills, as usual, was up and down, but he made the game-clinching play when he plastered Julio Jones on the Falcons' last-chance touchdown try.

"That's the life that you kind of live as a competitor when you get in those situations", Ryan said. "You're in a competitive game like tonight".

Two other Palestinians were injured and transferred to the Shuhada al-Aqsa Hospital in Deir al-Balah along with Abu Musaed. Then Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan met Ahed to personally convey his admiration.

"I feel like I played poorly", Ajayi said. "We're just going to keep believing in one another and just keep fighting". Foles also didn't turn the ball over against the Falcons and managed to lead the Eagles on three scoring drives that each lasted at least 12 plays and took more than five and a half minutes.

SIDEWAYS - His fumble on his first carry led to the Falcons' first three points. Not unlike in Foles' only other playoff game back in 2014, the Eagles quarterback left the field in the fourth quarter with the lead.

Foles threw for 246 yards on 23-for-30, but at halftime he had just 101 yards on 11 completions, gaining almost as much on penalties caused by bad throws than on receptions. The score was set up by the Eagles' second turnover as Bryan Braman touched the ball following a punt, putting Atlanta at the Philadelphia 18-yard-line to start the possession.

Neal had a sure-fire interception.

The Eagles then put together their best drive, an 80-yarder covering 14 plays, yet again faltered close to the end zone.

The Eagles cut it to 10-9 with 1 second left in the half.

Foles, in the second playoff start of his career, got the job done, while the Eagles' defense held the Falcons' offense to 281 total yards. After Ryan made an interesting decision to wait to throw on an open Levine Toilolo near the end zone on a boot leg that ended up incomplete, Ryan was able to extend a third-and-goal play with his feet and found Devonta Freeman for his second touchdown catch of the season.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn could have opted to take the wind in the fourth quarter after deferring on the opening coin toss.
