Sunday night's game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Philadelphia Eagles is must-see NFC TV. Don't let last week's disappointing loss by the Falcons at the hands of the Bears fool you, the Falcons are still a good team.
Last season, the Atlanta Falcons finished first in the NFC in the regular season. They had home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Falcons, they ran into a red-hot Packers team in the 2011 NFL playoffs. This season, they remain a serious contender in the NFC.
The Eagles also remain a legit contender after a NFC East title in 2010 and a monster offseason this summer.
Both teams have a lot to prove on Sunday. The Falcons are coming off a 30-12 loss in Chicago last week while the Eagles may have won against the Rams, but they still have a lot to prove due to the massive hype they have received this season already.
Sunday night should be a good one as it is also Michael Vick's first start in Atlanta since he was arrested and imprisoned on dog fighting charges back in 2007. Expect a warm welcome from a city that still loves Vick, but once the game gets underway, expect a thriller that could be a nice preview of the NFC Championship Game this January.
