Atlanta Falcons: Biggest similarities, differences with Philadelphia Eagles
Similarity: Past their top corners, there is concern for Atlanta and Philly’s secondary.
A.J. Terrell and Darius Slay have two of the toughest tasks in the NFL – trying to lead the Falcons and Eagles secondaries that have concern past their top spots on the depth chart.
Obviously, Terrell does not have the dominant years that Slay has had, but he is trending in the same direction. He also has as big of a responsibility as Slay will have for the Eagles secondary.
It just comes down to a lack of talent or proven players for both of these teams. They have bottom-tier secondaries and will not be scaring any teams like the Denver Broncos do.
It is probably a biased opinion, but the edge goes to the Falcons if you had to choose between the two.
Atlanta has talent with players like Isaiah Oliver, Darren Hall, and Kendall Sheffield – if he is able to return at some point.
The Eagles have a safety in Anthony Harris who has had a couple of spectacular seasons, but he is an uncertainty.
For the home team, they have two quality veterans starting with a couple promising young players backing them up. Either way, these secondaries have to cover some talented receivers.
