Eagles’ Zach Ertz jabs ESPN analysts for picking against them

The underdog billing really struck a chord with the Philadelphia Eagles prior to their NFC divisional playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday.The Eagles were underdogs entering their game with Atlanta despite being the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Tight end Zach Ertz was motivated by the team’s underdog status and even trolled ESPN’s analysts for picking against his team. The culmination of the underdog talk was Lane Johnson wearing a dog mask after the Eagles’ 15-10 win. The underdog storyline may have worked to motivate the Eagles for this week’s game, but the conference championship game next weekend could be a different story. Will they still feel as fueled up by the slights after winning their divisional game?
