In Week 8, The Atlanta Falcons will travel to Philadelphia to face off against the Eagles. Coming off a bye, the Falcons will be touting a 6-0 record and sitting atop the NFC South. On the other hand, the Philadelphia Eagles will come off their bye at 3-3 and in turmoil. Quarterback Michael Vick has been a turnover machine this season (8 interceptions, 9 fumbles, 5 fumbles lost). The Eagles defense has been turned upside down by the firing of DC Juan Castillo. Sounds like easy pickings for the high flying Falcons, right?
Not if history has anything to say about it.
