Good evening Falcons fans! Welcome to a new season and good luck this week!

Em

Can't argue with that synopsis, except Eagles have no answer for Trick Montalban. #11 gets 2 TD's and a mass of yards. Falcons front 7 won't get gashed as much in the run game, and a Bryant FG is the difference Falcons 34-31

Keys to Victory: Philadelphia Eagles

1. Keep it Tight: By staying aggressive on the outside vs the Falcons WRs, the Eagles can get Matt Ryan to hold the football a half second longer than he wants too; which will ultimately lead to either sacks or checkdowns. Philly has to dictate where Ryan goes with the ball.

2. Remember Why You Got RBs: Philly went out and grabbed two top-notch free agent running backs in Demarco Murray and Ryan Mathews. Those two, combined with Darren Sproles, gives the Eagles the best backfield in the NFC East. They can’t afford to get pass happy.

3. Make the Plays That Are There To Be Made: This is for both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. The offense can’t afford any missed opportunities to put points on the board because of dropped passes or miscommunication in the passing game. While defensively, it’s imperative vs Atlanta to make 1-on-1 plays in space. The Falcons possess two physical receivers and a rookie running back in Tevin Coleman that is one missed tackle away from a 50+ yard run.

Keys to Victory: Atlanta Falcons

1. Beat the Eagles at their Game: I think the Falcons have the playmakers on the flanks to go uptempo/no-huddle. That also allows their offensive line to not be exposed as much to Philly’s pass rush and could give Coleman the opportunity to break one by catching the defense in a bad position.

2. Don’t Be Afraid to Send Extra: Atlanta has, at least I think, the ability to apply pressure now with their new additions in the offseason. That, coupled with the fact that Sam Bradford still may be a little hesitant coming off the knee injury. I think it would be in the Falcons best interest to try and force him off the spot.

3. Play Excellent Special Teams: This is the one facet of the game that can turn the tide for either team because I think both squads are excellent in this area. For this game’s sake, the Falcons have to hope that they are the ones that have the better day of the two.

Thanks, Em. Seems you share the outcome vision with all the other pundits out there.

I'll be at the game - and I wouldn't go if I didn't feel we have a chance. I like your points in the video - and you make good points for the outcome - but hey - there's a reason we play the game!

Go Falcons - let's shock the world Monday night - no one gives us a chance - let's take our own!

Rise Up!

This is why I'm always hesitant to do full-fledged article b/c of things like this. I realize many may not want to 'click the link and give me a page view' but c'mon. This is also why I do 99% video. A lot of people ask "why don't you just write an article?" Wellllllll lol

Thanks Gang...I'm shocked at how many people - outside of you guys - don't see how good this Falcons defense is on paper and how well they play in the preseason. I get that it's preseason, but they could've easily went out there and stunk but they didn't!

I think a lot of pundits only look at box scores and stats in the preseason. You wouldn't know that the Falcons 1st string defense showed a ton of improvement unless you actually watched them play.

After watching us in Week 2 and 3, my roommate (an Eagles fan) actually drafted the Falcons D/ST in fantasy football. haha I think he expects better things from Quinn than I do.

I just clicked through even though it was posted here, for that reason.
