PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Mathews helped the Philadelphia Eagles play keep away from Matt Ryan and Atlantas high-powered offense.After disappearing from the game plan the past two weeks, Mathews ran like a guy who was tired of watching from the sideline. He had a season-best 108 yards rushing and two touchdowns while the Eagles piled up 208 yards on the ground.The suddenly successful rushing attack allowed the Eagles to control time of possession by a nearly 2-to-1 margin, forcing the leagues top-scoring offense to be spectators for much of the day.The result was a 24-15 win over the Falcons on Sunday.We did what we needed to do to win, Mathews said. I know the linemen love run blocking. They played great. They did all they could to open up holes for us. We knew it was going to be a hard game. I said throughout the week if any of us got the ball, we were giving 100 percent.Mathews had just nine carries in the past two games while 33-year-old Darren Sproles took over as the featured back. But coach Doug Pederson made a point to establish the run behind Mathews right from the start.Mathews carried seven times for 34 yards on the first drive, taking it in from the 4 for a 7-0 lead. He had a 5-yard TD run in the fourth quarter and also scored the 2-point conversion.I had confidence in Ryan to get the job done, Pederson said. His size and strength paid off.Rookie Wendell Smallwood chipped in with 70 yards rushing on 13 carries. Sproles ran twice for 19 yards and caught eight passes for 57 yards.We stepped up when we needed to, Smallwood said. We needed to establish the run game and we did.The running backs made it easier on Carson Wentz and the offense was more balanced -- 39 pass calls, 37 run calls -- than its been in recent games.The backs did a great job and came up with hard, physical runs, center Jason Kelce said. Ryan had a great day. Even when we didnt block guys, he made guys miss.Wentz finished 25 of 36 for 231 yards. He connected six times with Jordan Matthews for 73 yards and six times with Zach Ertz for 55 yards.The run game was huge, Wentz said. It was good to get Ryan the ball, feed him the rock, and he was running angry. That makes my job easier.The Eagles (5-4) snapped a two-game losing streak and remained unbeaten at home in four games.When Ryan, Julio Jones and Co. were on the field, Philadelphias defense held them down. The Falcons came in averaging 33.9 points per game but didnt find the end zone until Ryan threw a 76-yard touchdown pass to Taylor Gabriel in the fourth quarter to give Atlanta (6-4) a 15-13 lead.Jones had 10 catches for 135 yards , but he couldnt make catches to extend drives twice down the stretch.---http://www.pro32.ap.org and -http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi Real Cheap Yeezys For Sale .

ATLANTA -- Many times in life we dont appreciate the fact that history is being made in real time and right in front of us.That is not the case with Coach Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide. All of us who follow the SEC have had a front row seat to history.For when No. 1 Alabama (12-0) takes on No. 15 Florida (8-3) in Saturdays SEC championship game at the Georgia Dome, that history will continue.A victory on Saturday by Alabama would give Saban, in his 10th season at Alabama, his seventh SEC championship (two at LSU, five at Alabama). That would move Saban into sole possession of second place on the all-time list behind Bear Bryant at 14.Heres the list:SEC ChampionshipsCoachChampionshipsBear Bryant (Kentucky, Alabama)14Nick Saban (LSU, Alabama)6Vince Dooley (Georgia)6Steve Spurrier (Florida)6John Vaught (Ole Miss)6Another note: A win would give Saban his seventh victory in a conference championship game. That would tie him with Oklahomas Bob Stoops.Alabama will very likely go to the playoff even if it loses to Florida on Saturday. But dont tell Saban that this game is not important. Winning the SEC championship game is a big deal. A really big deal.Winning the SEC championship is something thats really important to us and we think a very, very significant accomplishment (in) that we would have to beat a very, very good team (Florida) to do it, Saban said earlier this week. My experience in the game, whether it was at LSU or here at Alabama, is that the only better competitive venue Ive ever played in is the national championship game.seIf Alabama wins its third straight SEC championship the Crimson Tide will be the No. 1 seed when the pairings for the four-team College Football Playoff are released on Sunday (Noon, ESPN). It also means that Alabama would return to the Georgia Dome for the CFP semifinal on Dec. 31.If Alabama wins the national championship it would give Saban a total of six (1 at LSU, 5 at Alabama). Saban would then tie Alabama great Bear Bryant for the most national championships by a coach.Heres the list:National ChampionshipsCoachChampionshipsBear Bryant (Alabama)6Nick Saban (LSU, Alabama)5Bernie Bierman (Minnesota)5Frank Leahy (Notre Dame)5And heres the stat that really puts Nick Sabans time at Alabama into perspective: Saturday will be the 72nd game in Alabamas rich football history that the Crimson Tide have played as the nations No. 11 team.dddddddddddd.Saban has been the head coach for 48 of those games, posting a record of 42-5. Those 42 wins as No. 1 are the most by any coach in college football history.One final nugget on Saban: If Alabama wins Saturday it would give the Crimson Tide their 15th consecutive victory over a Top 25 opponent. That would put Alabama within one game of the all-time record of 16 straight wins against Top 25 opponents set by Southern California from 2002-2005.Here are a few other storylines worth noting as we approach Saturdays game:?It will be 25th anniversary of the SEC championship game which began in 1992 at Legion Field in Birmingham. Alabama won the first game against Florida 28-21 and then went on to beat Miami in the Sugar Bowl for the national championship.To honor the occasion former commissioner Roy Kramer, whose leadership created the game, will be joined by the two coaches in the 1992 game - Floridas Steve Spurrier and Alabamas Gene Stallings - for the pregame coin toss.?This will be the 23rd and last SEC championship game at the Georgia Dome, which is scheduled to be destroyed after the season. Next year the game will be played at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium which is right next door. The College Football Playoff national championship will be played there as well next season.?This will be the 12th appearance in the SEC championship game for Florida and the 11th for Alabama. This will be the ninth time that Alabama and Florida have met in the championship game. The record in those games is tied at 4-4.?This is the second straight appearance in the SEC championship game for Florida coach Jim McElwain. He is the first coach in history to go to the SEC championship game in each of his first two seasons.?And finally there is this: There has been talk that this could be Sabans best team in his 10 years at Alabama. Only time will tell is that this true. But this much I know: This is one of the best defenses - if not the best - that Saban has had in Tuscaloosa. The numbers do not lie. These are the defensive categories in which Alabama leads all of FBS: Scoring defense: 11.4 ppg Total defense: 246.8 ypg Rushing defense: 68.7 ypg Defensive TDs: 9 Offensive TDs allowed: 12 Rushing TDs allowed: 3 First downs allowed: 13.0 per game Chiefs Jerseys China Cheap Nike Chargers Jerseys Cheap Nike Raiders Jerseys Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys China Cheap Nike Giants Jerseys Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys For Sale Wholesale Redskins Jerseys China Cheap Nike Lions Jerseys Packers Jerseys China Cheap Vikings Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Panthers Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Saints Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike Buccaneers Jerseys Cardinals Jerseys China Cheap Rams Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Nike 49ers Jerseys Seahawks Jerseys China Bears Jerseys China Cheap Nike Bills Jerseys Ravens Jerseys China Wholesale Falcons Jerseys China ' ' '
