The Atlanta Falcons' defensive line could be in for a treat on Sunday, when the Falcons head to Pennsylvania to take on the Philadelphia Eagles.

Per Pro Football Talk, the Philadelphia Eagles have moved King Dunlap back into the starting lineup, and Dunlap will start at left tackle for the Eagles when they play host to the Falcons on Sunday. Philadelphia's offensive line has been troublesome this year, and is faced with the always-difficult task of protecting quarterback Michael Vick.

To date, Vick has thrown eight interceptions with just eight touchdown passes on the year, and has also fumbled three times -- matching his fumble total from the entire 2011 season.

Left tackle has been a trouble spot for the Eagles ever since Jason Peters suffered an Achilles injury in the offseason. The Eagles remain optimistic that Peters will play this season, but he most certainly will not play in Week 8, when the Falcons come to town.
