WELCOME BACK FOR THE 2018-2019 NFL FOOTBALL SEASON!!!
It has been a long off season, but the NFL is back in business tonight with a repeat matchup of the divisional round playoff game between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles. The Falcons are hoping to redeem themselves from that last minute touchdown debacle at the end of the game in January. I am back this season to give you my picks all year long! Here is my first one...…….
ATLANTA FALCONS vs PHILADELPHIA EAGLES:
The Eagles are starting QB Nick Foles. This is due to QB Carson Wentz not being cleared to play by doctors. That is not the only injury holding the Eagles back from starting the season off where they left off in February. WR Alshon Jeffery is out with a shoulder injury along with WR Mack Hollins with a groin injury. DE Michael Bennett had a full practice but has been nursing a knee injury and RB Jay Ajayi practiced despite a nagging foot injury. There are a few others on suspension or IR. This will "hurt" the Eagles against the Falcons, who are coming in healthy and ready to rectify their mistakes in their last meeting. Even though Philadelphia will be raising their Super Bowl banner, the Falcons have something to prove. Feathers will definitely be flying in this one.
There is my first pick of the season! I am so happy to be back and to talk football. Let me know what you think. Good luck to your teams and picks!
