Atlanta @ Philly Discussion

Post by Cliff » Sat Jan 13, 2018 5:20 pm

Vikings play one of these teams if they win. Anybody else watching?

Philly is running at will currently. In scoring position.

Come on Atlanta, don't crack until next week.

The new field goal distance really does make the kicking game more interesting.

The way both teams are playing is going to make is so damn easy for us come next week. :banana:

Also hilarious that the Eagles muff a punt and give back to the Falcons.

And like that, the Falcons score a touchdown.

Yea looking at the game so far, it looks like the supposed matchup next week should be easier than tomorrows, but i cant help but look forward tomorrows matchup. Im sitting here mentally preparing like I'm about to hit the field against the Saints.

Both teams look bad. I'm guessing the conditions have something to do with it. Ryan looks just as bad as Foles right now. Atlanta should be ahead by a couple scores but Eagles are hanging in there.

Vikings need to take care of business tomorrow.

Philly’s D is folding here at the end, although it will only take a Philly FG to tie or win after Atlanta gets their TD here.

Hoping to play the Falcons at home after we take care of business tomorrow.

Very interesting final minute here. 1st and goal. That 4th down conversion was huge and had to be demoralizing.

Scratch that. Guess we’re going to Philly. I’m good with that too.

Philly freaking stinks, but that environment is true home field. I remember Culpepper saying that the fans were shoving his wife around and he said if he had known that, he would have stopped the game and literally went into the stands. Filthadelphia.

I think whoever wins between us and the Saints is Super Bowl bound.

The NFL is happy that US Bank Stadium will not host the NFC Championship. Gives them an extra week to prepare the stadium for the Super Bowl.

I really wanted to play Atlanta at home if we beat New Orleans tomorrow. Any road game, outdoors, in the cold, introduces new variables that can work against us. I wouldn't look past Philly if we make it to that game. It's going to be very tough.

Oh, well, let's beat the Saints and figure it out.
