Last time met: The Eagles relied on their defense in a 24-15 victory over the Falcons on Nov. 13, 2016, at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles held the Falcons to one touchdown and three field goals by Matt Bryant. Eagles running back Ryan Mathews rushed for 109 yards and two TDs.
Eagles’ best-case scenario: The Eagles win their first playoff game since the 2008 season. Nick Foles throws two touchdown passes and no interceptions. Running back Jay Ajayi rushes for 100 yards. The Falcons’ Matt Ryan throws two interceptions. Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is a nonfactor.
