Falcons: They entered the draft in search of an edge rusher to play opposite of 2016 sacks leader Vic Beasley Jr., and think they found that in UCLA DE Takkarist McKinley in the first round. McKinley had 10 sacks in 2016 season and averaged 1.6 tackles for loss per game.
They know how to overcome internal turmoil. Their horrendous offensive line aside, good luck finding a roster with better speed, athleticism and talent. Their defense has started to embrace the heavy burden it carries, and their offense makes enough plays, especially late in games, after defenses grow weary of chasing Russell Wilson and trying to cover Doug Baldwin.
Their offensive line is in contention for the worst individual unit in the NFL, and it got worse when center Justin Britt injured his ankle Sunday against the Giants, moving rookie Ethan Pocic into his place.
The last time they started a season 7-1 was in 2004, and they made the Super Bowl that year.
As if to increase the hype, the Eagles got better this week, making a trade with the Ozzie Smith Youth jersey Dolphins for running back Jay Ajayi 锟斤拷 who twice last season rushed for more than 200 yards in a game. He adds to an Eagles offense already ranked fourth in rushing and third overall in the league.

The Eagles smell blood in the water in the NFC East. Already owning a 2 ? game lead over 4-3 Dallas, which plays the 6-2 Chiefs on Sunday, the Eagles have a chance to blow open the division.
The 1-6 Giants and 3-4 Redskins don’t appear to be a threat.
