What Dan Quinn had to say after playoff loss to Eagles

Three field goals from Jake Elliott and a solid defensive effort would secure 15-10 victory for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Atlanta Falcons.

And this team can beat you in so many ways. An impeccably dressed bald man tapped him on the back and ...

However, considering the Falcons' defence is giving up an average of just 16.3 points per game over the last six, the offence's performance might not even matter. Multiple wise heads are adopting the historically sound postseason-home-dog position as their own, and they may be right - though if that proves valid, it's certainly not easy to envision this production going "Over", either. He wasn't accountable for any touchdowns or interceptions this game.

And on Saturday, he stood up to the challenge. The game that Foles was set up inside the 25 twice he had four touchdowns and actually looked good. That's what it's always been about. "I understand Carson is a great player, but every week our guys hear we're not good enough". But the biggest thing about this it that it's sports, that's part of it.

But what that game may have done was give Falcons a bit of a "relaxer" somewhat as the pressure of not doing well in playoff games finally subsided and went to Minnesota in a classic NFC Championship tilt.

On Saturday night, the Eagles were united behind and around their quarterback. Such is life for a starting National Football League quarterback.

Coach Dan Quinn said Wednesday there were "no setbacks for him or for us" due to Ryan's excused absence on Tuesday, when the game plan was installed. I knew when [Falcons QB] Matt [Ryan] came back and retreated that something took place. We come in, and Nick Foles is the new quarterback. The drive started at Philadelphia's 7-yard line, and the Eagles advanced 74 yards in 12 plays.

"We're called underdogs all week, so I went and bought an underdog mask from Amazon", Johnson said after the game when revealing why he wore the mask. At that point, a backup QB is a curse, a disappointment. The best plan of attack is for Nick Foles to make a few nice passes early and make a Falcons defense that will be thinking run all day to back off the box and have to start thinking pass on more plays. New England is also 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS in its last three games as a double-digit favorite in the playoffs. Bill Belichick's stop unit has an uneven history against such types (see: Newton, Cam and Watson, Deshaun). "It means a lot to me", Ryan said. He had been listed on the Falcons' injury report due to a knee issue ahead of both playoff games.

At times, Foles was fantastic.

Elliott connected on two more field goals throughout to give the Eagles a 15-10 lead going into the Falcons' final drive. Foles was 5 of 6 for 70 yards on the drive, including a clutch 21-yard completion on third-and-8 to Alshon Jeffrey. Not even for a moment or two during the drive, Atlanta's longest of the game in yards gained (74) and number of plays (14), did the team think about anything other than how it turned out.

Turns out it was second-year cornerback Jalen Mills, isolated on Hall of Fame-bound receiver Julio Jones.

But at least he didn't go bust.

"It's an awesome feeling to be moving on and having a chance at the Super Bowl", Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said. "He made the throws he had to make".
