The Philadelphia Eagles came into Saturday’s Divisional Round against the Falcons as underdogs. They won, 15-10, after the closest finish of the postseason thus far.
After the game in the locker room, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie was dancing with the team as they were hyping him up:
It was a big win for the Eagles. They were the NFC’s top seed, but many had them losing this game against the Falcons with Nick Foles at quarterback in place of the injured Carson Wentz.
Foles ended up doing just enough in the game. He completed 23 of his 30 passes for 246 yards. While he didn’t throw a touchdown, he also didn’t turn the ball over. It was enough, as the Eagles’ defense limited Atlanta’s offense all evening, especially on the Falcons’ final drive, which ended at the Philadelphia 2-yard line.
The Eagles will now host the winner of Sunday’s Vikings-Saints game in the NFC Championship.
It’s safe to say that Lurie is excited.
