PHI -1 Total 51
Philadelphia is coming into this game unbeaten, but it was not because of a heart attack type of game for the Eagles. The Eagles had played decent in the game against the Redskins, but quickly fell behind in the game in the opening quarter and had to battle back from the horrible first half. The Eagles defense was suspect against a weaker Redskins offense as they allowed 27 points, but the Eagles did score 32 points in the game.
The Eagles were happy with the performance of Carson Wentz in the game. He went 28-39 for 313 yards and 3 touchdowns. Darren Sproles was the running back the Eagles relied on to carry the ball. He ended up carrying the ball 9 times for 47 yards on the day, but no scores.
Atlanta is coming into the game here after getting stomped by the Vikings. The Falcons defense was ripped apart by the Vikings offense which ended up scoring a total of 28 points on the day. For all the power the Falcons offense was supposed to have on the year they were only able to respond with 12 points and did not look like they were on the same page a lot of the game.
Matt Ryan played a decent game for the Flacons as he went 33-46 in the game for 304 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but he did throw a couple of picks as well. Ito Smith was the leading rusher for the Falcons as he carried the ball 6 times and only managed to pick up 31 yards.

Look for the Falcons defense to be better in this game compared to week 1, but also look for Ryan to easily carve the Eagles defense up for a big day.
