The rollercoaster ride is officially over. Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles have been eliminated from the postseason and it unfortunately came down to an untimely and super uncharacteristic drop from star wideout Alshon Jeffery. The ball slipped through his hands and it led to an interception.

At that point the Eagles were hoping to capitalize off a Saints missed field goal and managed to drive to the Saints' 27-yard line with just over two minutes to go. If Jeffery catches that, the Eagles have a third and short coming after the two-minute warning.
Instead, the Saints will be hosting the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game next week.
