This is the final injury report for the Atlanta Falcons’ season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Today is the day, Falcons fans. Tonight, the Atlanta Falcons will be on the road against the Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles.
In addition to this being the first game of the 2018-2019 NFL season, this is a huge game for the Falcons and their fan base.
If the Falcons are able to get a win over the Eagles then the Falcons would become overnight favorites to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl.

Beating the Eagles won’t be easy. The Falcons will have to execute at a high-level and avoid backbreaking turnovers. Additionally, Atlanta will need to preform better this season against the Eagles than they did last time they played, which was in the divisional round.
There will be a lot of pressure on Matt Ryan. If he is able to defeat this great Eagles team, this is a win that could propel him to the top of the MVP list. If he is unable to move the ball against Philadelphia’s fast defense, the narrative will likely return that he is overrated.

Final Game Predicition
I’ve been confident all offseason that Atlanta will beat the Eagles. In fact, ever since I learned that Nick Foles was going to be the starter, and that Wentz was still recovering, my confidence shot sky high.
My final prediction is that the Falcons win a close game 24-21.
