CBS EXPERT: EAGLES MAKE SUPER BOWL BUT LOSE TO FALCONS 38-35!

By Mary Cunningham

While Eagles Nation gets revved up for next Monday night’s opener at Atlanta, in which the Birds are a 3-point favorite over the Falcons, here comes CBSSports.com’s John Breech to throw cold water on our hopes:

Let’s cut straight to the chase here: I’m taking the Falcons.

Now, Eagles fans, before you start yelling at me in the comment section or sending me death threats on Twitter, just remember that Philadelphia is my NFC pick to get to the Super Bowl. The problem I have with picking the Eagles over the Falcons here though is that Sam Bradford hasn’t played a regular season game since October 2013. I realize that Bradford had an amazing preseason, but so did EJ Manuel and Landry Jones, just in case you’re wondering how much I care about preseason games.

As long as Matt Ryan’s eye (above) doesn’t get hit by a flaming pyrotechnic during the Falcons’ intros, I think Atlanta pulls off the upset in a game where both teams go for over 400 yards in total offense. Falcons 38-35 over Eagles.
