The Philadelphia Eagles' convincing Week 1 victory against the St. Louis Rams created as many questions as it answered. Their resounding 31-13 rout of the Rams came after St. Louis lost many key starters to injury, including Steven Jackson and Danny Amendola. Several of the Eagles' weaknesses were magnified by their play throughout the game. In short, the Eagles have no lack of talent, but they still haven't proved to the rest of the league that they can put it altogether for a run at the ultimate prize.
This week's Sunday night matchup against the Atlanta Falcons, a fellow prospective Super Bowl contender, should give us a much better idea of what the Eagles' ceiling is. Coming off a disheartening 30-12 rout at the hands of the Chicago Bears, the Falcons are intent on turning around their season, beginning at home, where quarterback Matt Ryan has excelled over the past few years. A loss here would be devastating for them, especially with more difficult games coming up on the schedule, in Tampa Bay and Green Bay. This will be a well-fought game on both sides' part—look for a very good football game Sunday night.
I expect to see the following things from Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles at the Georgia Dome.
