One of my favorite pre-game reads every week and we get it a little earlier than usual.
My favorite highlights follow or download the whole sheet here.
Against the Eagles, the Falcons welcome the return of injured wide receiver Michael Jenkins. The receiver has been out for 71 days since injuring his shoulder in early August.
Eagles running back LeSean McCoy is the only player in the NFL with 350-plus rush yards (365) and 200-plus receiving yards (218).
The always-important turnover battle will be a factor on Sunday. The team that turns the ball over the least and takes it away more usually wins. Under head coach Mike Smith the Falcons are 14-1 when they win the turnover battle. Sunday’s game features two of the top teams in turnover differential. Atlanta is tied for second in the NFL with a plus-7 turnover differential. The team they’re tied with: the Philadelphia Eagles.
