Philadelphia at Atlanta

Zachary Bachar

The Eagles offense exploded against the Redskins after trailing 17-0 to start the game, and the Atlanta Falcons defense shouldn’t scare Philly too much. The Falcons trailed 28-0 before scoring in what was essentially garbage time, making their week 1 outcome seem much closer than it actually was. The Eagles should continue to roll in their quest to return to the playoffs, securing a win over the Falcons by the final score of 28-20.

I admit to being an Iggles hater. Even so, I can’t in all good conscience say they aren’t one of the top-tier NFC Teams. Atlanta on the other constantly fails to impress me. No one knows from season-to-season or many times, from week-to-week which Falcons team will show up.

Last week, Philly was caught sleeping by upstart Washington, falling behind 17-0 in the second quarter. It was the reverse in the second half. Philadelphia scored 25 straight points to pull ahead, eventually winning 32-27 behind three touchdowns and 311 yards from quarterback Carson Wentz. The Iggles go 2-0 behind another solid performance from their QB.

Connor Muldowney

Everyone seems to be jumping on the Eagles bandwagon this season, especially with a healthy Carson Wentz, but I’m hesitant to join the wave. Atlanta just lost big on the road to Minnesota and Matt Ryan had a terrible opening game. I expect him to bounce back against the Eagles and put up 350-plus yards through the air while Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley have monster games.

The Atlanta offense will return to form, but the Eagles will still make things interesting late. In the end, it’s a Wentz interception that seals the “upset” victory here for the Falcons as they improve to 1-1. Final Score: Eagles 30, Falcons 33.

Ed Easton

The Eagles will bounce back from a stunning Week 1 loss by unleashing their quarterback Carson Wentz. He will throw early and often leading to another big game for DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey. Atlanta is still struggling to figure out what type of team they are this season. Eagles Win.
