Atlanta Falcons vs Philadelphia Eagles 2019 – Who Will Win? Sunday’s big football match will determine which team wins the NFC East. Continue reading for the facts. The Philadelphia Eagles were in a losing streak coming into the game, but came back to win in the end. The Atlanta Falcons are a team to watch in 2019.
Both the Falcons and the Eagles want to start their seasons stronger than last year, when they finished last in the NFC East. The Eagles last played in Week 2 last season and this is their first game since then. Although both teams are expected to win, many NFL experts predict a close game. The Falcons are the favorite, unlike last year. ESPN gives the Falcons a 63 percent chance of starting 1-0.
The Falcons have a new defense. Julio Jones will be out for this season, but there is no reason to discount their offensive line. Keanu Neal, Kyle Pitts, and Kyle Pitts were both rookies who impressed last year. The Eagles will be without safety Malcolm Jenkins and defensive tackle Justin Forsett. They will also be without star receiver Michael Crabtree, and tight end Darius Slay.
The Atlanta Falcons offense has three down linemen as well as two edge rushers. This formation is referred to as the “Bear” front, which was popularized by Buddy Ryan while playing for the Chicago Bears. This style of front makes it difficult for the defense to pull off blockers and get to the second level. It’s a fascinating matchup with the Falcons in rivalry games.
The Eagles’ offense was poised to score after Carson Wentz’s fourth-down interception. But after a second-half turnover by Philadelphia’s Josh McCown, the Falcons held on for a 24-20 victory. This was a great game for Carson Wentz’s career and an excellent test for them. It will be interesting for us to see if he is ready for the next NFL season.
The Falcons won the first half. Philadelphia had a great night of offense. Matt Ryan threw three touchdown passes to two different receivers. Although the Eagles ran a long route, it took them almost five minutes to drive 50 miles to score their first touchdown. A blitz, however, costs the team, but it won’t happen this week. Hopefully, the Falcons can take the first half in Atlanta.
