Falcons come out throwing on every down and go into the half up by 3 scores, forcing Foles to start throwing in the 2nd half but its too late.....Falcs 31:21 Eagles

Not sure about this - confident but I think I liked it better when no-one was picking us!

I dont see Foles having enough to beat the Falcons defense. Falcons 24 Eagles 20.

This feels like a trap game, everyone is picking us to win but I'm not so sure. The eagles defensive line could easily bully us upfront. I keep thinking of the Eagles win vs us last year when everyone thought we'd win and they ran all over us. I think we can expect a similar game plan tomorrow. I reckon they limit both teams possessions by running often and it ends up a 3 point game. A coin flip game that ends 16-13 to someone.

All on Foles really, he is capable of good games in amongst the bad ones. The Eagles are a good team all round, if Foles doesn't give it away then this should be a close one...

I'm goingFalcons because they can nail a game winning drive.

Falcons 20 vs Eagles 17

Thats what i think they SHOULD do, however, when you have 2 backs like Freeman and Coleman, do you still try running the ball against a fairly awesome Eagles run D? If they do, they could be playing into the hands of Philly. There will be a lot of pressure on Quinn and Sarkisian to get this right, and the first half could be a deciding factor. I,m not writing off the Eagles in this at all, with that D and keeping things tight and Mills and Darby playing a good game.

Easy to write off the Eagles, who unsurprisingly haven't looked the same team since Carson Wentz went down. However, the Eagles are well rested and Atlanta still aren't entirely convincing, so this could easily go either way.

Expecting Philadelphia to test the Falcons' run Defense early and often, while Atlanta will look to utilise their RBs as receivers out of the backfield. The Eagles need a strong effort from their pass rush, as Julio Jones could have a huge game if Atlanta's OL keeps Matt Ryan upright.

Don't think there will be much in this, but I think the Falcons will pull off the "shock"...

Eagles 20 Falcons 27

coming off a bye well rested still think the Eagles at home should be able to win todays home game as long as they get there running game going to take the pressure of Foles.

Gone for the Eagles win in the end after much mulling over, but could really go either way, like i said if the Falcs come out bombing it, it could be over at half, but just think that Eagles D will be a factor
