Saturday, Jan. 13th (4:35 PM): Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia Eagles fans can’t quite feel right about being the No. 1 seed when they know Carson Wentz isn’t leading this playoff game for them. Instead, it’s Nick Foles going up against the defending NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons. I was impressed by the Falcons’ defensive tenacity last week, and Matt Ryan remained poised despite last year’s horrible end to the Super Bowl. The Eagles played like a complete team this year, but you can’t minimize the dropoff with Foles in a situation like this. Falcons 27, Eagles 17.
Browns fans should use this as an open thread to discuss the game!
