Who will win the NFL Divisional round: Philadelphia Eagles or Atlanta Falcons?
The Eagles limped into the NFL playoffs without MVP-caliber quarterback Carson Wentz. But a first-round bye gave the Eagles a week of rest and preparation for their divisional round game. Quarterback Nick Foles also got extra time to adjust to his wide receivers so they can be on the same page.
The Falcons are walking into a hostile environment that will be too much to overcome. The Eagles are advancing to the next round.
Regular season records don't matter in the playoffs. Momentum does. The Atlanta Falcons weren't given much of a chance on the road against the best offense in the league, but they still find themselves in the divisional round with a great chance at advancing.
With the Eagles offense struggling mightily, the stingy Falcons should be able to shut down the run game and confuse Foles into making costly mistakes. Atlanta already has one playoff win under its belt this year and will have another after this Saturday.
