NFL Divisional Round

By Rohin Walia, reporter

Philadelphia’s defense come up strong last-minute and Jake Elliott saved the team with three field goals as the Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons 15-10 to advance to the NFC Championship Game. Many people doubted the Eagles would advance to the next round because their starting quarterback Carson Wentz is injured and out for the remainder of the season. Nick Foles has done a great job at quarterback so far. Tom Brady threw three touchdowns and 337 yards, and the New England Patriots killed the Tennessee Titans 35-14 to advance to their seventh consecutive AFC championship game. At age 40, Tom Brady is still showing that he is the best quarterback in the NFL. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns and Blake Bortles threw for 214 yards. Jacksonville Jaguars stunned the Pittsburgh Steelers 45-42 to advance to the next round.  This game was filled with excitement since so many touchdowns were scored. Many people doubted that the Jaguar’s defense would be able to keep up with the Steelers, but they did. Case Keenum completed a clutch throw near the sideline on the game’s final play, as Stefon Diggs ran for a 61-yard touchdown to give Minnesota a 29-24 victory over New Orleans. The Vikings now advanced to the  NFC championship game.
