Falcons versus the Eagles: Game Announcers, TV Info, Odds, More
The Atlanta Falcons will host the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday evening at Mercedes Benz Stadium. Here’s all the information you need to know to watch, listen or stream the game live.
The Atlanta Falcons will host its first of two nationally televised games this Sunday evening when the Eagles come to Atlanta for the first time since September of 2015.
The Eagles are coming off of a 32-27 home victory over the Washington Redskins in week one. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was impressive in his first live action since December as he was 28/39 for 313 and three touchdowns. The Eagles are more of a running back by committee as Darren Sproles, Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders all had at least six carries in week one.
The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. live on NBC. Al Michaels (play-by-play), Cris Collinsworth (analyst) and Michele Tafoya (sideline reporter) will be on the call.
You can also catch the game locally on radio via 92.9 where the great Wes Durham (play-by-play) and Dave Archer (analyst) will bring you live action.
Early Odds, Information:
Falcons opened up as an early 2.5-point underdog, Bovada currently has the Eagles favored by a 1.5-points. Since Dan Quinn was hired in 2015, the Falcons are 3-0 against the spread and straight up as the home underdogs.
Going back to 2008 when the Falcons drafted Matt Ryan, five time the Falcons have started the year 0-1 and are 5-0 in week two.
The Falcons will be looking to keep Matt Ryan cleaner against the Eagles as he was pressured on 20 of his 46 drop backs and hit more than a dozen times by the Vikings defense. The Falcons had to add rookie Chris Linsdtrom to the IR after fracturing his foot against the Vikings.
Jamon Brown will get the first opportunity to replace Lindstrom, but the team also brought back veteran offensive lineman John Wetzel, who was in camp with the Falcons and released on cut day.
