Quarterback Matt Ryan (personal reasons) and wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle, ribs) both missed practice Tuesday but are expected to start on Saturday.
For the former Penn Charter High star from the Philadelphia suburb of Exton, this is the classic business trip.
The total has gone over in six of the Titans' last seven games on the road against the Patriots. "I'll be very well-prepared for the game". The Eagles defense is stout and championship-worthy. So it's really just me giving him opportunities to make plays because he will make them. (Eagles defensive coordinator) Jim Schwartz has always been that way. And it's not a team that anybody's overlooking I think. Philadelphia lost QB Carson Wentz late in the season though, and haven't looked all that solid at the position over the last few games. They're going to do what they do. In the NFC the Rams are flying high, the Falcons were just there past year. "We'll try to improve on that". It will likely be a bit louder when they are on the same field on Saturday.
Where: Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, which last hosted a playoff game when the Nick Foles-led Eagles fell to the Saints on wild-card weekend 2013. Sarkisian called 39 rushing plays, his most all season.
SportsLine's advanced computer model says Ryan will continue to roll against the Eagles. But, you know, we've got a quick game, and we've got quick shots like that in the game plan. We're pretty consistent and it's familiar with him on how to get back and get ready. But he followed that up with a completion percentage of 46.9 and a passer rating of 48.2 in two ugly performances to wrap up the regular season.
"Same guys. My mentality hasn't changed", Ajayi said. The Falcons wanted to bring their defense to a level approaching their offense's, which has happened. Case Keenum was able to elude pressure and had a field day against the Falcons Defense and the Vikings won with relative ease. With Foles at the helm of the Philly offense that will surely rely on pounding the rock, therefore shortening the game, I can see why the number is so low.
Coach Doug Pederson expects a rude welcome for the visitors. New England is also 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS in its last three games as a double-digit favorite in the playoffs.
Key Stat: Matt Ryan completed only 23 passes for 233 yards. The Linc will be loud this weekend, as the fanbase as a whole has been waiting four years for another playoff game.
The only two qualifying players with a higher rating are Pro Bowl Hall of Famers Bart Starr (104.8) and Warner (102.8).
Defensively it is an even match with the Falcons having the advantage in the secondary and the Eagles front four having an advantage as well.
