Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles - 1/13/18 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Julio Jones will be only Falcons player held out of practice Tuesday

Julio Jones will be only Falcons player held out of practice Tuesday

If Nick Foles throws the ball 45 times for Philly, an Atlanta win is guaranteed.

The Eagles, who won the NFC East, but are missing injured quarterback Carson Wentz, hold an 18-14-1 all-time mark against the Falcons, with the last win coming in 2016.

Foles was awful against Oakland in that second win, and his body of work over the past few seasons is uneven, to say the least.

Before tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament December 10 against the Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was widely considered to be the leading candidate for NFL MVP. I think Derrick Henry will have another big day to control the clock and keep Tom Brady off the field. "When I play my best and I'm most comfortable, I just go out there and play". In fact, when Jay Ajayi was still playing for the Dolphins, he broke tackle after tackle against the Atlanta defense. The Seahawks have excelled at it for several years. The players behind them may be suspect, most notably the secondary. The Eagles defense does things the Atlanta defense just doesn't do.

Makes sense, since coach Dan Quinn used to be Seattle's defensive coordinator.

Nick Foles is starting for the Eagles and based on one bad game the Eagles would apparently be better off going with nearly any other quarterback in the League. "Basically, get out of your own head and play the game you know how to play". It's an aggressive style.

Can they pull out a win?

Gambit Loses Director, Gets Release Date
Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski signed on to helm and a release date of February 14th, 2019 was announced. Wyatt pulled out in 2015, and the project continued more or less as planned until Liman, too, exited the next year.

When they get in their zone coverage, they force opponents to take what's given. If it's the latter, the Eagles have a shot against Matt Ryan and Co. The Patriots will probably circle the wagons successfully - they're favored by 13.

Adrian Clayborn leads the way with 9.5, and he doesn't even start.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Eagles are 3-point home dogs to beat the Falcons, who are the sixth seed in the NFC.

Ryan hasn't been that quarterback for much of the season. "You saw it against the Rams". "At the same time, it's like, if you can get through that wave of defenders in the box, then there's going to be a lot of space. It's a quality defense, but that's what we expect this time of year". Foles hadn't played meaningful snaps in more than a year, when he was called on to replace Wentz in mid-December.

Normally I wouldn't pick against the Vikings at home, but this Saints team is going to go all the way.

It's not yet confirmed that all-everything wide-out Antonio Brown will play, but he is practicing for the Steelers, who are 10-2 SU in their last 12 home games.

In a game where Philadelphia's offence has every chance of misfiring without Wentz, their defence will once again need to be at its best to stop Julio Jones and co. It's as simple as that.
