♪ this is fox 29 news, the chase for championship sponsored by nissan. the regular season is over. the eagles are the number one overall seed coming out of the nfc nowy wait to see who will stand in their way in their hunt for the lombardi. welcome to the chase for championship i'm kristen rodgers rodgers. the anticipation is rising here in philadelphia as the eagles look to make the most out of this opportunity. ♪ >> we need to play our best footbaou know, every team has got to get betteroing into the playoffs because whoever you play will be the best team you played all year. ♪ you never know when you'll get this opportunity again. right now i think the mindset on this team is to get every little
bit of ounce of everything, everybody on this team, you know know because i mean like i said you never know when you'll get this opportunity. ♪ biggest thing just trying to get to the super bowl. that was alshon jeffrey saying what the rest of this team knows. it's now or never i'm joined now by eagles insider dave spadaro. thanks so much for hanging out with me tonight. >> my pleasure. >> the eagles have a bye they get an extra week to prep for the playoffs all eyes on nick foles. >> yes, they are. >> are you at all concerned about how he's played the last few weeks. >> the whole offense has played poorly. they made too many mistakes. nick has not played well. nick has not looked comfortable particularly in that oakland raiders game, and i went back and looked at everything. 48, first and second down plays in that oakland game. they had five penalties turned the ball over twice against dallas in that first quarter. they had two penalties and a turnover in four possessions.
you can't win that way. nick has to play better. but so does everyone around him. and so does the play calling. kristen it has to be better. >> what did you want to see him do this week? what do you think he should be focusing on to make sure that he is executeing better come saturday? >> i think just getting into a comfort zone building chemistry with his wide receivers. let's remember did he not play in the preseason. he did not play through 12 games games. he stepped in los angeles and came out loose. gun shrinking went to new york, loose, loose. then he kind of just -- it all happened against oakland where the offense just went into this shell. it was conservative play calling calling. it was sloppy play and i thinkic kr just gettiack to the basics. very.>> exactoh theme for a second as we talk bout and tire offense but since carson wentz went down, eagles run game hasn't basketball as effective. >> correct. >> do you think it's a lack of commit many or a lack of ex execution. >> defenses are playing the eagles differently. you'll see a loft eight men in the box as the eagles have seen. receivers being challenged at
the line of scrimmage. defenses are saying, hey nick foles, you're going to have to beat us. we're not going to lose to the run game. >> take look at some of these stats the first 13 games 143 yards averaging per game on the round. last three just 85.3 about a difference of 58 yards so, again, doesn't feel like they're committing or executing to this run game. >> i think it will help instead of fan wisnewski back in the lineup. chance not the athlete that stephen is. that will help. they'll ajay. work clem mon and legarrette blount into the mix they'll be committed to the run game than they've been f you're not gaing yards on first and second down, if you're committing penalties you'll be third and long eagles have been terrible in third and long. >> eagles have been great in terms of physicality they wanted to put on the pads and get more physical at practice. doug pederson listened to his guys put on the pads this week upping the level of competition. do you think that speaks to the
character of this team. they're the guys that wanted that. that and the cause of this lack luster play was a bit of a drop in intensity in practice so they wanted to get back to higher tempo more physical play put the pads on, everything that i heard kristen everybody is very pleased with the practices this week. we'll see how that translates into practice next week and the game on saturday. but i think they realized that they need to get that edge back. >> um-hmm. >> they've been missing it the last couple weeks. >> lane johnson was about. he spoke about that earlier this creek week. >> we had pretty much a training camp practice. i think it's good for us. um the best way to simulate a game is by practicing hard and that's what you do in training camp and we had a few weeks to kind of get our legs back under us and it was good. >> we just kind of kept our focus on like i said the preparation of it. wanted to put the pads on and compete against each other and get those reps in. we feel like we get better as team when we compete against each other. >> you heard lane johnson there.
these guys wanted simulate game type situations. why is that so important for them right now? >> they need to get their timing down. nick needs to get this timeing down. his confidence. he knows to throw in challenging situations where the windows are small f you're having a half item pole practice you're in the really gaining that experience with your quarterback and your receivers. so very important that they get the timing down. they get the gameg down a jay fresh in the run game taking a couple of weeks here in terms of hard work, so theyl him. kristen, i think it's tim get really nasty time to get really physical. it's playoff football and you can't -- i think for doug i think what he wanted to do was get everybody's energy back up after the three game road trip. now it's time to focus and in take the intensity up another level. >> you feel like putting those pads on that's able to -- >> it should help. it should. it raises the level of competition. >> yeah. it. >> raises the urgency. the eagles didn't have that the last couple of weeks. >> that's something i know fans are going want to see a lot of
too. >> yeah. >> dave, when we come back, it's almost game time for the rest of the teams around the league. we'll take a look including andy reidnd the chiefs going to break down those matchups coming for this when i would cardekend theyel: broke, homeless, selling my body to get high, locked up, a slave to heroin - that was my life. married, a homeowner a professional, recovering and thriving - that's my life now. i got help. you can too. new years means a new day for those struggling with addiction. don't suffer. don't wait.
the chase formpio. it's wild card weekend as eight teams get cut down to four. those that don't make it will see their season come to an end. we'll start with the first game of the weekend. tennessee at kansas city saturday at 4:30 and a guy who is very familiar with the playoffs, andy reid and the chiefs. having begun there for four of the last five years with kansas city gives him a bit of an edge. >> since you've been you kind of know what to expect. the games are ae faster, so maybe experience helps you with that as a player and coach but um, you know it's good competition once you get to this level it's good competition all the way through and make sure you may well. >> later on saturday the falcons head to los angeles at 8:15. the rams haven't been to the playoffs since 2004. so there are a lot of young guys on this team who haven't experienced what this kind of play is like including
quarterback jared goff who admits he has a few butterflys in his stomach right now. >> i'll be nervous. of course, yeah, you always get nervous but i think it's more excitement and more anxiety and you want to get out there than true nervousness and, you know, you may have that little pitt in your stomach at the beginning of the game but it's no different than any other game for me. i feel the same way every week. approach this one the same way. >> on sunday the bills and jaguars get things going at 1:05 and how about buffalo. first time in the playoffs since 1999. players and fans alike have been partying like it's 1999 since they clinched that play off berth but don't under estimate them especially quarterback tie rod taylor. jags head coach doug marone got that reminder from someone pretty close to him. >> last night my wife called me and asked me the same question. [ laughter ] >> i'm telling you the truth. she's like, hey listen, you know this guy is dangerous. so i'm like yup um-hmm. >> and rounding out the wild card weekend a game a lot of
eagles fans will be tuning into the panthers and saints face off winner potentially coming here to the linc next week to take on the eagles. these teams are two teams led by two great quarterbacks who have been here before and have pretty well versed takes on how to prepare for the playoffs. >> trying to start fast, you know having all peaces that i believe we will have and um, just getting in the rhythm. that's going to be important for us. >> i prepare like every game could be my last. where it's a playoff game. i've got something to prove. i've got an edge. you know so it's not like the playoffs are here, okay, time to wrap it up things are a little more important. it's all important. you know. >> i'm joined once by dave spadaro. dare dave before we get to the panthers and falcons and saints because obviously that's who the eagles eagles fans want to see. what other matchups are you looking forward to this wild card weekend? >> i think the afc is interesting with so much new blood there.
>> yeah. >> but i really find it hard to see how these road teams in the afc have a chance to win the game. buffalo without will he show mccoy. tennessee wasn't impressive i'd love to see andy reid make a run in the playoffs. first round win, second round losses seems to be the mo in kansas tee these days. >> exact the i was going back looking at tenure there they seem getting that level four out of the last five years andy reid and the chiefs made it to the playoffs but haven't been able to break through and obviously afc has power houses with bye weeks with steelers and patriots taking a break off. >> we know about andy reid in philadelphia. >> just a little bit. >> getting there and not breaking through. >> bills fans have to be excited though. >> totally what a great season, huh. >> speechless when it comes to them. >> kristen in the nfl12 teams make it out of 32. if you get to the tournament, you have a chance to win the game. crazy things happen as we know. injuries weird bounces missed tackles. so the bills have a shot just
like everyone else. >> eagles could find find out who they're playing in falcons falcons/rams again. if the falcons beat the rams, the eagles will play them play the lowest remaining seed aft this weekend. what do you see in that matchup right now. >> a lot of scoring. >> yeah. >> i think the matchup is an experienced falcons team, against a super talented and inexperienced in the playoffs rams team. they're wheeling out snoop dog to play at half time. >> yeah. isn't at the la memorial coliseum they'll have a lot of fun. to me if you start quickly against the rams you put them in the hole you put a lot of pressure on jared. good off this is not like every other game. this is a different level of tempo. a different level of pressure. you win you go to the next round. you lose you go home. i think at land has a shot to win that game a slim shot but a shot. they're defense is better than people think. >> eagles fans would like to see that. >> snoop dog very familiar with the coliseum.
>> why mott. it will be a party. >> they play the rams, saints or panthers. they played carolina earlier this year when it comes to the saints though everyone knows about drew brees but we need to talk about that run game because they've got two great backs who have been so strong for the saints >> mark ingram, alvin kamar row a rookie. first team all pro. they run with power they run power and illusnessin the receiving game. mark ingram la a lot of people have seen you. camaro made the difference for the saints this year. averageing 9 yards a touch. in the the highest number of yards per touch in the last 25 years in the nfl. he's really the safety valve for drew brees. extremelyd offense. theyill be a different difficult. we saw brees in 2013 he game to lincoln financial field and beat eagles. i think it will be a great matchup. the panthers physical against theaints. they know newrleans played them twice this year. can newree times in a season. >> that's the big question.
>> that's the question. if new orleans does come in great run game eagles with the best run defense in the league that would be fun matchup to watch. >> chmura in the pass gam really tough. >> that would be great. on m thing about drew brees we're talking so much about the run game because he's not the same drew brees any more. >> he's not but he's also really kind of quietly had a very nice season. leading the saints to the second ranked offense in the nfl. he's got a dynamic receiver in michael thomas. they still make plays to the tight ends. he won't be too deep down the field he gets rid of the ball very quickly. we saw what eli manning manning did owe eagles defense a few weeks ago. that would be tough one for the week. >> our sports director tom srendenschek goes one-on-one with eagles cornerback douglas. >> how important word when you use the word fun. >> people get the idea the playoffs and stuff. they think more than what it is. they're not having fun. i want to be the one in the newspaper the next morning.
