The high flying falcons come out of the bye week at 6-0. However, people still have a lot of questions about their authenticity, & for good reason. With the 3-3 Eagles awaiting the Falcons, we may as well consider that winning streak broken. That’s right, go ahead and chalk them up 6-1. The Falcons haven’t won in the state of Pennsylvania since 1974, with an embarrassing record of 0-11-1.

This has been a season of firsts for the Falcons: their first 5-0 start followed by their first 6-0 streak. Matty Ice is the front runner for the MVP, Julio and Roddy alternating week to week to see who goes off, and the ageless Tony G just down right ballin’. With all of these factors on the field, the Falcons should continue trending right, and going on to their first 7-0 winning streak. After that, they just need possibly two more wins to wrap up the NFC South.

I say, “Hell Nah.” This is a bad matchup for the Falcons on all kinds of levels. Between Andy Reid being 13-0 after the bye, the elusiveness of Vick and Shady McCoy, and the speed of DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, I don’t see them pulling out a win. All of these factors combined will prove too much for them damn dirty birds. My prediction is that the Falcons take the L.
