Eagles vs Falcons : Live stream, game info, start time, How to Watch Football Online
The Atlanta Falcons travel to Lincoln Financial Field to play the Philadelphia Eagles. Here is all the information you need to catch the game. The No. 6 seed Atlanta Falcons are favored against the No. 1 seed Philadelphia Eagles. That’s due to the Eagles being without star quarterback Carson Wentz, but that doesn’t mean the Dirty Birds should take the flock from the north east lightly.
These two teams met last season, and the high-flying Falcons offense had fits with the Eagles defense. Since that time, Atlanta’s offense hasn’t been the same and the Eagles defense has only gotten better. Thankfully for the Falcons, their defense also has improved. They finished the 2017 season ranked in the Top-10 in total points and yardage surrendered, which means this Saturday’s game could become a slug fest.

There’s no doubt the Falcons will be road tested after playing in Los Angeles the week prior. Considering they were the final NFC entrant, they’ll gladly take that. In fact, they would be happy to go for one more road game next week against either Minnesota or New Orleans as a win this weekend lands them in the NFC Championship game.
Coming off a road win in the Wild Card against the Los Angeles Rams, the Atlanta Falcons will attempt to knock off the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Falcons’ 26–13 victory over the Rams made them a rare road favorite against a team without its most important player.
The Eagles will be without quarterback Carson Wentz, who has a knee injury and will turn over the offense to backup Nick Foles.
The last time these two teams met in the playoffs was the NFC Championship Game in 2005. Philadelphia beat Atlanta 27–10 to earn a berth in the Super Bowl, where they would go on to lose to the New England Patriots.
