Did you know?

You know this stat, you love it... Andy Reid is 13-0 the week after the bye, by far the longest streak in NFL history. In fact, since the NFL instituted the bye, the Eagles as a franchise are 19-4 after the week off.

Familiar Faces

Two pretty big ones this week. Eagles QB Michael Vick was the #1 overall pick of the Falcons in the 2001 draft and spent 6 years in Atlanta. Vick made three pro bowls while he was there. Falcons CB Asante Samuel spent 4 seasons in Philadelphia and nabbed 23 interceptions over that span.

Historical matchup

This is the 31st meeting between these teams with the Eagles holding a 17-12-1 all time edge. The Eagles are 6-2 against the Falcons in the Andy Reid era and undefeated at home. Mike Smith is 1-3 vs the Eagles.
