Dogged effort: Eagles don masks after upset win

Once the masks sppeared after the game, fans began buying them up, selling Amazon out of the look and also creating a huge market on eBay as well. The Atlanta Falcons lead the Philadelphia Eagles by a score of 10-9 at the half.

The Philadelphia Eagles fan base has been spectacular this season, to say the least.

The Eagles lost Carson Wentz, Jason Peters, Darren Sproles and Jordan Hicks - arguably four of the most important players on the team.

Blount's 1-yard touchdown on fourth-and-goal gave the Eagles the lead, but Elliott's extra-point try hit the upright and bounced out.

After Corey Clement's five-yard run following an encroachment penalty resulted in a first down for Philadelphia, Foles would kneel on each of the next two plays to run out the clock.

Ryan's final pass, on a fourth-and-goal from the two, was incomplete as he tried to force it to Jones in the corner of the end zone.

And you know what that means? "It just didn't work out and that's disappointing". Both of the Eagles and Falcons ensuing drives ended in a punt. "At this point in the season, it really don't matter; it's anybody's game". While the Super Bowl hangover will be further put in the past that alone will not make the Falcons Super Bowl contenders again.

The gameplan was to run, run, and run some more to wear the Falcons defense down.

"Since that point, no one has given us a chance", Pederson said. We were looking for that opportunity and that matchup on that specific play. "We can go win this game'". He was targeted 16 times. For the Falcons to be Super Bowl threats down the road, Jones must be almost unstoppable.

The Eagles' next opponent will be the victor of the Minnesota Vikings - New Orleans Saints game on Sunday afternoon. They chose to get dog masks after that.

Keenum has consistently been among the top-15 statistical quarterbacks in the league, finishing the regular season completing 67.6 percent of his passes for 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns with seven interceptions. Freeman had only 7 yards on his 10 carries.

Now, the Falcons must cope with a much earlier and almost as dramatic defeat as what they sustained last February.

"You oftentimes get man-to-man in those scenarios", Quinn said.

"The finality of it sometimes is hard, so we're disappointed for sure". There's a lot of back and forth.
