This game is highlighted by one thing: Quarterback Michael Vick returns to Atlanta as a starter for the first time since he left the team following the 2006 season.
Yes, the Eagles did play at Atlanta late in the 2009 season, and Vick contributed two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing), but he didn't start and he really didn't have any impact on the game.
He missed the Eagles' game against the Falcons in 2010, which was played in Philadelphia.
Throughout Andy Reid's tenure as head coach, the Eagles have always had the Falcons' number, winning eight of nine contests, including twice in the postseason.
But the Falcons game is the Eagles' second straight game to begin the season on the road. They'll probably suffer a costly injury in Week 1 and it'll affect them against Matt Ryan and the Falcons in Week 2.
Falcons 27, Eagles 17
