The main issue in anticipation of the game itself is the situation with the quarterback of the “eagles”. The fact is that Carson Wentz, who spent most of the past championship in the main candidates for the title of MVP attack, will not play from the first minutes. However, he did not play in the end of the last championship and in the playoffs. The title was actually won for the team by Wentz changer Nick Fowles. He will become a player in the starting lineup. It would seem a good replacement, but Fowles looked too bad in pre-season matches. Perhaps it’s worth discarding this whole preseason in which teams want to conceal more than show, playing, sometimes, not to the fullest.
Meanwhile, at Atlanta everyone looks healthy and ready to show everything they are capable of. However, if Falcons is okay with the defense. This is a great, fast game that will constantly press Fowles aggressively. But as for the attack, the coordinator Steve Sargsyan did not work out the past championship too well. Interestingly, it was these teams that played in the division round last season. Then the “Philadelphia” won – 15:10.
