After beating 26-13 the LA Rams as visitors the Falcons dream with another year in the Superbowl. They were the lowest seed in the NFC. So they are visitng the No.1 The Eagles from Philly.
The Falcons have showed improvement in the end of the season. They beat divisional rivals and they made it to the playoffs in a really competitive division. They went to LA and beat the Rams and the defense were able to stop a potential MVP Tod Gurley. And the offense scored more than 20 points. Se , they are flying Philly with a high hope and with a great possibility to be in the NFC Championship game, when they could face the Saints or the Vikings.
In the other hand, the N.1 First seed the Eagles (13-3) are had a week off and are ready to show why they stood in that place. However, after the Carson Wenz injury, they Eagles have not been the same. And they finished their regular season at home losing against the Cowboys. Nick Foles is a good back up QB. But that will be enough to beat the Atlanta defense, who have been playing well?
In the other side of the ball, the defense will have a difficult task, trying to stop Atlanta’s offense with a balanced running game and passing game.
If the Eagles win the game, they may show that they are Super Bowl contenders, otherwise, it will be another year without a ring…
