NFL Week 2 Pick: Falcons vs Eagles

Atlanta Falcons +3 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The Falcons are coming off an embarrassing week 1 loss to the Bears, while the Eagles looked impressive on the road at the Rams. Look for the ATL to avoid an 0-2 to start and pull out a late victory in their home opener. Atlanta has won and covered their last 3 home openers and have not lost back to back games in their last 22 games played. The Eagles were just 4-4 against the spread last year on the road last year. The Falcons last 7 games off a non-division loss have produced 7 straight covers. Matt Ryan and the Falcons prevail in this one.

Prediction:  Atlanta 27  Philadelphia 24
