Wild catch helps Eagles add three points (Video)

Keanu Neal play

A wild play just before halftime of Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons went Philly’s way and ultimately led to three points.

Philly had a 2nd-and-8 situation at their 30-yard line with 22 seconds left and Nick Foles threw what looked to be a sure interception. Instead, Keanu Neal leaped for the ball, which deflected off his leg and into the hands of Torrey Smith for a 20-yard gain:

Two plays later, Foles found Alshon Jeffery for a 15-yard pass with one second left in the half. Jake Elliott then nailed a 53-yard field goal to make it 10-9, Atlanta.
