Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons Live Streaming at - http://www.usanfltv.com. Sunday. If there was any doubts about the Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Michael Vick performing after signing his big contract, he erased them last week. This Sunday he walks back into Atlanta for just the second time wearing an Eagles’ jersey.
Vick completed 14 of 32 passes for 187 yards and 2 touchdowns, not to mention 97 rushing yards to top it off. You can expect him to light it up in Atlanta against his former team.
Matt Ryan, who took over the staring role at quarterback in Atlanta after Vick went to prison for the dogfighting incident, has shown that he is the man for Atlanta. Ryan completed 31 passes for 319 yards, but the Bears stout defense held him without a score.
The Philadelphia Eagles easily have one of the toughest defenses in the NFL. They arguable have the best three corners in the league in NnamdiAsomugha, Asante Samuel, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, if he returns from his ankle injury. The Eagles pass rush limited the St. Louis Rams to just 181 yards.
Michael Turner, who carried the ball 10 times for 100 yards, is no slouch either. The Falcons might have to rely on the run in order to keep Michael Vick off the field and to exploit the weakness in the Eagles defense. The Eagles allowed RB Steven Jackson to rip a 47-yard touchdown before he left with an injury, and RB Cadillac Williams to collect 91 yards of his own.
LeSean McCoy also had a huge game last week. He carried the ball 15 times for 122 yards including a 49-yard touchdown, and a receiving touchdown. Atlanta is tough on the run, so he will have to work for every yard.
Atlanta will boo as soon as Vick either runs in or throws his first touchdown on Sunday. As long as he can keep up the offensive production that he has shown so far, barring an injury, the Eagles could very easily find themselves in line for the Superbowl.
