Eagles vs. Falcons: 4 Things to Watch in Early NFL Showdown

Philadelphia and Atlanta were on completely different ends of the spectrum after their Week 1 performances. It should be noted that Atlanta played an 11 win, division winning team from a year ago while Philadelphia played against a 7-9 franchise with a quarterback who's only in his second season and had no offseason.

The Atlanta Falcons largely disappointed in Chicago, losing 30-12 to the Bears. The game was actually worse than the score indicates, seeing how Atlanta got two field goals in the fourth quarter.

Philadelphia went on the road to St. Louis and came out with a rather easy win. The impressive aspect for the Eagles was how unimpressive they were even though they won by 18 points.

Teams are not as great as they seem in Week 1 nor as terrible. Nothing is set in stone after Week 1 of the regular season, but there are trends that could be just beginning for both these NFC powerhouses. These four things need to be looked for when Michael Vick squares off against his old team in the Georgia Dome on Sunday Night Football.
