 Elliott required reclamation. His missed additional point opened the entryway for a stunning Houston rebound, and Philadelphia wound up trailing by a point with three seconds left to play. 

The second-year put kicker arranged for a 35-yard field objective and tranquilly thumped it through the uprights to complete off an exciting 32-30 triumph that kept the Falcons' playoff trusts alive. 

"When it closes an amusement, you get the opportunity to appreciate it somewhat more," an Elliott told correspondents of his festival following the diversion. 

That Elliott got the opportunity to compensate for his oversight, which had come right off the bat in the final quarter, was genuinely lovely, yet the credit for Philadelphia being in the amusement at all was owed to the reinforcement quarterback Scratch Foles. 

All desire had appeared to be lost for the Falcons two weeks prior when the group dropped to 6-7 and Carson Wentz, its favored starter at quarterback, broke a vertebra in his back. Be that as it may, presently, after Foles go for a profession high 471 yards on Sunday, anchoring his second in a row win, the Birds some way or another still have a shot at a N.F.C. trump card compartment with one diversion left to play. 

"Foles was so sure and everybody was so quiet," said Zach Ertz, Philadelphia's star tight end. "Nobody winced. Folks stuck together." 

Houston, in the mean time, will lick its injuries after the misfortune yet at the same time stays in prime position to make the playoffs and conceivably secure a first-round bye. 

Regardless of whether Sunday's exertion does not prompt a playoff billet for the Falcons, the exhibitions by Foles and Houston's Deshaun Watson were significant. Also, on multi day with a lot of huge tosses from the two quarterbacks, none was greater than Foles' association with Nelson Agholor in the second from last quarter that broke what had been a 16-16 tie.

Foles, whose gathering on the acclaimed "Philly Extraordinary" play helped win last season's Super Bowl, adopted an increasingly conventional strategy this time around, uncorking a flat out bomb that cruised around 50 yards noticeable all around — scarcely sidestepping the hands of a jumping Houston safeguard — before settling itself into Agholor's arms. 

Tyrann Mathieu hit the turf in the wake of neglecting to protect the pass, which left Agholor independent from anyone else with 30 yards left to run. The wide collector ran whatever is left of the route for a 83-yard touchdown, setting aside the opportunity to pivot and execute a truly flawless trust fall into the end zone. 

The Birds extended their lead to 13 by exploiting a strip-sack bungle of Watson and walking down the short field before Foles discovered Zach Ertz for a 23-yard touchdown pass, just to have Elliott miss wide-ideal on his additional point endeavor. 

With the littlest of openings made by the missed additional point, and a mishandle by Philadelphia's Josh Adams, Watson, who had guided the group to a 10-1 record after its 0-3 begin, went to work. He drove a couple of touchdown drives in which he over and again ventured out of sacks and some way or another discovered beneficiaries downfield, even after Demaryius Thomas was lost for the amusement, and no doubt the season, with damage to his Achilles' ligament. 

Watson's association with the youngster Vyncint Smith for a 35-yard touchdown pass gave Houston a lead with a little more than 2 minutes to play. Be that as it may, Foles, who had the breeze thumped out of him on his group's past belonging, took the Birds 72 yards on 11 plays, setting Elliott up for the amusement winning field objective. 

J.J. Watt, Houston's veteran star at protective end, appeared to assume the misfortune hard. 

"I'll put that on my shoulders," Watt said. "The offense worked to perfection giving us a possibility, and we simply didn't get a stop toward the end." 

Foles looked similarly as electric as he did in a year ago's postseason, finishing 35 of 49 goes for 471 yards and four touchdowns. He had four recipients set up something like 75 yards, and he associated with Ertz multiple times, helping his colleague break Jason Witten's N.F.L. record of 110 gatherings in a season as a tight end. Ertz has 112 and checking. 

Foles, who may have played his last home amusement in Philadelphia paying little respect to how this season wraps up, was enthusiastic while examining the execution. "We stuck together through the high points and low points," he said. 

Going into Week 17, Philadelphia still trails Minnesota for a trump card billet yet has a reasonable test as the Falcons confront the battling Washington Redskins. The Texans, who tumbled to 10-5, will complete the season with a home amusement against the modest Jacksonville Pumas.
