Lane Johnson Trolls Eagles' Doubters With Dog Mask After Win Vs. Falcons

Lane Johnson Trolls Eagles' Doubters With Dog Mask After Win Vs. Falcons

The Falcons had a first and goal situation with less than two minutes to go, but quarterback Matt Ryan was unable to engineer the touchdown that would have given the Falcons a 16-10 lead. "Anything more we can use to motivate us, we'll use". And the will of the Eagles, who inched within a victory of the Super Bowl. The offense mustered just nine points in the first half to Atlanta's 10, but the final drive of the the second quarter gave the Eagles the momentum (and points) needed to go into halftime with hope.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Fly Eagles Fly.

STOPPING JULIO: The Eagles had some success against Julio Jones in their win previous year, keeping him out of the end zone but allowing 10 catches for 135 yards. The drive started at the Philadelphia 18-yard line because Eagles linebacker Bryan Braman made contact with the ball on an Atlanta punt, setting up the Falcons in prime field position.

As a unit, the defense held the Falcons under 300 yards of total offense and allowed their fewest points in a playoff game since the 2004 NFC Championship game against the Falcons.

Foles bounced back from a pair of subpar games with a steady performance. Really, that play served as the best way to sum up the Falcons' disappointing year.

Devonta Freeman hauled in a 6-yard touchdown pass from Ryan for a 10-6 advantage with 5:41 left in the second quarter. He was sacked three times while trying to evade the Eagles strong pass rush.

Playing without MVP-caliber quarterback Carson Wentz (torn ACL), the Eagles looked sluggish and out of sorts in the first half, but veteran backup Nick Foles ramped things up coming out of the locker room.

On a fourth-and-2 call with just over a minute remaining in a 10-15 divisional round game against the Eagles the Falcons called a play for their two best players: Matt Ryan and Julio Jones.

"There's enough substance behind his career that merits having confidence", Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich said.


In contrast, the Eagles ran for 96 yards and had several big plays on the ground.

He missed another PAT, his fourth of the season, after the Eagles' only touchdown of the game, but he connected on all three of his field goal attempts to help the Eagle earn the victory. On third and goal, the ball was fumbled and Foles fell on it.

But kicker Jake Elliott atoned at the end of the half. But Ajayi fumbled on the next play with Keanu Neal recovering.

The Eagles took the lead off the Falcons early in the second quarter when running back (RB) LeGarrette Blount charged over on fourth and goal.

SIDEWAYS - The Eagles' emotional leader was a third-down stopping machine early in the game.

Atlanta will get the ball to begin the second half.

And now Foles, who was roundly questioned leading into this game, will have a chance to play for a spot in Super Bowl LII in three weeks.

The Atlanta Falcons almost won a Super Bowl a year ago behind the NFL's most potent offense.
