Philadelphia Eagles 2019 road to the Super Bowl Well the Eagles got off to about the worst start possible in their first game of the season, falling behind 17-0 to an inferior NFC East opponent team. However the Eagles determinedly fought back, and wound up winning the game fairly easily. Tonight we face the Atlanta Falcons. It's always tough to travel to another NFL football team's stadium when they are 0-1 and come away with a win. The Falcons in this game should be scratching and clawing not to go 0-2. The Eagles simply cannot allow this Falcons team to get off to a 17-0 lead as what happened last Sunday against the Redskins, if the Eagles expect to win this game. Actually it would be nice if the Eagles could open up an early lead and coast home. But one way or the other, I think the Eagles are good enough to find a way to win this Sunday night game.
