The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Atlanta this evening to take on the Falcons. The Chip Kelly era continues but now with a new number one quarterback and running back. The Eagles traded for Sam Bradford in the season to be their new starting quarterback and also signed the leagues leading rusher from last season, DeMarco Murray, away from the Cowboys in free agency. Kelly also let Jeremy Maclin walk in free agency so now they will look to second year player Jordan Matthews and rookie Nelson Agholor to pick up the slack in 2015.
Much of the Atlanta Falcons hopes in 2015 rest with their revamped defense. The Falcons brought in Dan Quinn who had previously overseen a Seahawks sqad that was the most feared defense over the past couple of seasons. Quinn also brought along CB Byron Maxwell from Seattle to help him in the process of making over the defense. Adding to the new bodies on defense for the Falcons is DE Adrian Clayborn, LB Justin Durant and 1st selection, DE Vick Beasley. The Falcon faithful are hoping that the revamped edition of the defense will take pressure off of Matt Ryan who has thrown for over 4,000 yards 4 consecutive years running.
