The biggest reason Eagles fans believe they will beat the Falcons today is:
Bennie Logan’s return will lead to a statistical improvement for Fletcher Cox.
Logan’s presence will take away from the many double teams that Cox was forced to go against. Logan is a disruptive pass rusher that can generate an interior pass rush along with Cox.
His ability to get instant penetration and blow up running plays or push the pocket back on passing plays forces offensive coordinators to change blocking schemes. Cox has been at his best when Logan is playing next to him.
While Cox has gotten pressure on the quarterback, he has struggled to register sacks, arriving just a split second too late.
