Why this game is intriguing: Drama aside, this would still be a fun one. Matt Ryan's pass-happy Falcons facing off against one of the most annoyingly aggressive front fours in football. Throw in Atlanta's undefeated record and the immense potential in Philadelphia and this game has plenty of promise. And then you throw in all the other things going on with the Eagles. Honestly, this is quite winnable for Philly, given that it's at home, the Eagles are coming off a bye, and they have a new defensive coordinator in Todd Bowles who will put his stamp on things. A victory could serve as a catalyst to jump-start this squad. But every loss could trigger more changes for Andy Reid's team. Everything is filled with drama for Philadelphia.
