Sunday is a must win for the Atlanta Falcons
With a disappointing week 1 loss and a difficult opponent in the Philadelphia Eagles ahead in week 2, it is too far fetched to say that this game is a must-win for the Atlanta Falcons.
The Atlanta Falcons had a miserable performance against the Minnesota Vikings, as all Falcons fans are aware. The Philadelphia Eagles however, had an impressive victory over the Washington Redskins, coming back from a 17-0 deficit to win 32-27. DeSean Jackson looked like his old self, while Carson Wentz had an impressive game after an up and down 2018 season.
Sunday night againt the Eagles is a must-win for the Atlanta Falcons. Teams that start the season 0-2 rarely ever make the playoffs and with the way the Atlanta Falcons looked last week, it is a huge possibility that 0-2 could happen unless we see some changes and a more energized and prepared team.
A win Sunday night would be impressive for many reasons. One of those reasons being the recent history with the Eagles.
The Atlanta Falcons have had a frustrating 3 game stretch against the Eagles, losing all 3 games in Philadelphia. This time, the game will be in Atlanta, where last time these two teams met, the Falcons were able to pull out a victory. A win over the Eagles could be a massive confidence booster for the team and could bolster them to the playoffs.
For Dan Quinn, this is a make or break season. If the team does not make a deep run in the playoffs or even win a Super Bowl, Quinn will more than likely be gone. If the team comes out firing on all cylinders and plays with intensity and passion, it will be a very impressive bounce-back win.
Lastly, the schedule is relentless for the Atlanta Falcons. With one of the hardest schedule in the league, it is imperative that the team does not start the season with an 0-2 record. If the team comes out and plays like they did against the Vikings, the grumblings about Dan Quinn will only become louder. This is a must-win game that could save the season.
