Jay Ajayi rushed 18 times for 73 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Eagles' NFC Championship win over the Vikings.

Ajayi's 18 touches in last week's Divisional Round were his most as an Eagle to that point. He topped that mark with 21 in Sunday's victory, significantly out-touching LeGarrette Blount (6) and Corey Clement (3). Although he continues to lose scoring-position work to Blount, Ajayi should remain the focal point of Philly's offense in the Super Bowl against a Patriots defense that was damaged by all-purpose backs throughout the regular season.

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-5 targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' NFC title game win over the Vikings.

With Xavier Rhodes temporarily sidelined by a toe injury, Jeffery whipped 39-year-old CB Terence Newman for a 53-yard touchdown bomb late in the second quarter, giving the Eagles a 21-7 lead. Jeffery scored again early in the fourth, skying over Trae Waynes when Minnesota’s zone coverage forced Rhodes away from Alshon. In a picture-perfect game by Nick Foles, Jeffery was his most-perfect target recipient. Expect Jeffery to draw primary coverage from Stephon Gilmore in the Super Bowl.

Nick Foles completed 26-of-33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' shocking, 38-7 blowout win over the Vikings in Sunday's NFC Championship game.

Foles went just 2-of-15 on throws attempted 20-plus yards downfield this season. He completed four 20-plus-yard throws in Sunday’s game alone, beginning with a 53-yard touchdown to a wide-open Alshon Jeffery in the second quarter and capped by a 41-yard flea-flicker score to Torrey Smith in the third frame. Foles’ third TD went to Jeffery in the red zone early in the fourth. It was a stunning air-raid performance against the NFC’s premier pass defense. The Eagles will likely need something similar from Foles – in addition to defensive dominance – in order to upset the Patriots in the Super Bowl. New England is expected to open as a five- to six-point favorite.

Corey Grant caught 3-of-3 targets for 59 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Active over early-down plodder Chris Ivory, Grant added a two-yard rush. Just as he did during the regular campaign, Grant showed some serious juice as a change-of-pace option. Although he was buoyed by a 56-yard touchdown, Grant averaged 8.3 yards on his 30 regular season totes. The former UDFA is headed to restricted free agency. He turned 26 in December.
Jan 21 - 7:42 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught 1-of-3 targets for a four-yard touchdown in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Lewis appeared to be blatantly interfered with on each of his other two targets, but the refs swallowed their whistles. A catch-and-fall specialist who happened to fall five times in the end zone this season, Lewis is signed for $3.5 million in 2018. Although he's an excellent blocker, that could be too rich for the Jaguars.
Jan 21 - 7:39 PM

T.J. Yeldon rushed five times for 25 yards in the Jaguars' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots, adding two receptions for six additional yards.

The 2015 second-rounder established himself as Leonard Fournette's primary backup this season, handling the ball 79 times in 10 games. That included 30 receptions. Yeldon averaged 5.2 yards on his 49 carries, making him an effective change-of-pace and fill-in. Yeldon will try to show similarly well in the final year of his rookie contract before heading to free agency in 2019.
Jan 21 - 7:37 PM

Chris Hogan caught 2-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars.

Even with Rob Gronkowski (concussion) sidelined, Hogan took a backseat to Brandin Cooks and Danny Amendola on offense. Hogan has only four catches in three games since first injuring his shoulder in October. He will be a wild card for Super Bowl LII.
Jan 21 - 7:31 PM

James White rushed three times for four yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars, adding three receptions for 22 additional yards.

Although he touched the ball only six times, White was a big part of the game plan with Rex Burkhead (knee) evidently still not quite right. Now White is returning to the Super Bowl, where he was last seen catching 14 passes.
