Matt Ryan may have set a few franchise records against New Orleans, but he wasn’t the only person to credit for a Falcons victory this Sunday.
Good news, Falcons fans! If you drafted any of the Dirty Birds for your fantasy team this season, don’t hesitate to start them, because they all appear to be ready for the first game of the season against their NFC South rival New Orleans Saints.
All rivalries in football truly start when both teams are playing for something worthwhile.
Just like last year, the Atlanta Falcons opened up the regular season against their bitter NFC South rival the New Orleans Saints.
A last-second field goal by Shayne Graham brought an end to the first season of the Chip Kelly era as the Saints left Philadelphia with a 26-24 victory in the NFC Wild Card playoff. The time for season-long evaluations will come over the coming week, but for now let’s take a quick look at how the Eagles performed in this game.
Drew Brees can be patient behind a steady offensive line. The Eagles struggled to bring a pass rush on Kyle Orton many times on Sunday night, so look for the defensive line to try and correct that this week against New Orleans. Easier said than done of course.
Drew Brees will be much more successful against the Eagles defense than back-up Kyle Orton was in the final game of the regular season. But, if the Eagles can knock Brees off his game, then the Saints could quickly run out of options to try and keep up wit the Eagles offense.
