It’s almost showtime, and thank goodness. There are always surprises during an NFL season, but here are a few things that we’re all assured of. Between now and the rest of the calendar year, football will be played every Sunday, and the Philadelphia Eagles have 17 games with which to wipe the stain from their soul that we’ll remember as the 2020 NFL regular season, one that ended with a 4-11-1 win-loss total.

As bad as they were, there’s one thing that they can hang their helmets on. They weren’t as bad as the Atlanta Falcons (sort of), who wrapped their most reason regular season in 2020 by being a half-game worse than Philly was with a mark of 4-12.

See? Sometimes a tie comes in handy.

This is one that can go either way. Both teams hope to begin their 2021 campaign with a win, but make no mistake about it. We’re a long way from those two teams that battled in the postseason as Philly marched towards a Vince Lombardi Trophy. It may be a while before we see these teams in the postseason again.

Eagles vs Atlanta Prediction Week 1

Though there are stars on both teams, the Philadelphia Eagles are a much better roster and a deeper roster from top to bottom. The Falcons are more experienced at quarterback. The Falcons might have a more polished unit at the wide receiver position, but the Philadelphia Eagles are better everywhere else.

For that reason, and because we’re seeing the debut of two head coaches, we’re calling for an Eagles victory in a game that may be void of defense for long stretches. We’re betting the over as this figures to be a narrow shootout victory for Philadelphia with a final score of 31-27. Jalen Hurts silences the naysayers, at least for a week, with two touchdown passes.
