All eyes will be on Michael Vick in this Week 2 Sunday Night Football game as he leads his Philadelphia Eagles to Atlanta, the place he began his NFL career. It was here that he won so many fans in six years with the Falcons and established himself as one of the most entertaining and talented quarterbacks in the NFL.
Even if we ignore the Michael Vick story that will inevitably dominate all of the buildup before this game, it should still be a great matchup between two top teams with points to prove.
The Falcons will have to show that they can repeat the form that earned them the NFC South title and best regular season record in the conference. With competition from the Saints and Buccaneers, it will be difficult to defend their divisional title, especially considering that no team has done so since the division was created in 2002.
The Eagles will also have a tricky task in trying to defend their NFC East title, something that hasn't been done since 2004. But, possibly with the exception of trips to their divisional rivals, this is the Eagles' hardest away game, and a win here would go a long way towards securing another title.
Another reason why this is a must-see football is that both of these teams have explosive, entertaining offenses, like the two teams in the game I chose for Week 1. This is clear because no team in the NFC produced more points than either of these two last year, and a Vick-less game last year in Philadelphia still produced 48 points in a home victory. Expect more points here.
