The Philadelphia Eagles are in the NFC Championship Game. It wasn’t pretty, but when the final whistle blew in South Philly, the Eagles were 15-10 winners over the Atlanta Falcons in their divisional round matchup.
The game featured a heavy dose of Jay Ajayi, Nick Foles finding a rhythm and the defense playing at a Super Bowl level. It was tight, but it’s the playoffs. Each team will be a tough out. And the Eagles have themselves one game away from the Super Bowl with the Minnesota Vikings or New Orleans Saints due up next week in the conference title game.
We’ll assign a letter grade to the Eagles position groups on a weekly basis to review their performance. We’ll also identify who stood out and who struggled in each group.
