The Eagles have to yet to win at home (0-2), while young Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is finally starting to win on the road (albeit ugly).

When Ryan has at least a 100 passer rating, the Falcons are 11-0. ... Atlanta's John Abraham has 93.5 sacks since 2000 -- the second-highest total in the league over that span. ... Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is the only player in the NFL this year with 350 rushing yards and 200 receiving yards. ... Philadelphia's Juqua Parker has six sacks in his past seven games.
