Eagles, Falcons? Your guess good as mine

Bringing some A gap heat today.
OFFENSE: As the O-line goes, so go the Eagles. At least one and likely two changes this week. Falcons have underrated O-line and are loaded with talent.
Edge: Falcons

DEFENSE: The new coordinator, Todd Bowles, is going to bring A gap pressure that will flush Matt Ryan from the pocket and make this game interesting.
Edge: Eagles 

SPECIAL TEAMS: Neither team is lighting it up here. If DeSean Jackson returns punts, advantage Eagles.
Edge: Falcons

COACHING: Andy Reid or Mike Smith? Hard to believe there's actually a choice to make. Reid is 13-0 in games immediately after the bye.

INTANGIBLES: With nasty weather on the way, the home field advantage is huge .
Edge: Eagles

Analysis: Tough to defend the Eagles on any front these days. Blaming their 3-3 start on the defensive coordinator is more than over the top. The Falcons (6-0) haven’t beaten a winning team.

The Pick: Make it Eagles 20, Falcons 17.
