Eagles vs Falcons NFL Week 1 MNF Pick

The first Monday Night Football game of the 2015 NFL season – Eagles vs. Falcons – will showcase a new-look Philadelphia team against an Atlanta team that is continuing to rely on players that provided its success from a few years ago.

ESPN will nationally televise the MNF Eagles-Falcons game at 7:10 p.m. Eastern from the Georgia Dome. Itll be the first game of a season-opening Monday Night Football double-header on ESPN, followed by the Vikings and 49ers.

Philadelphia will have a new quarterback for the season-opening Eagles-Falcons game, as Sam Bradford has come to Philadelphia from St. Louis. Two of the three quarterbacks the Eagles used last season, Nick Foles and Michael Vick, are no longer in Philadelphia. It will be interesting to see how Bradford, who has seen back-to-back seasons cut short with knee injuries, will perform in Philadelphia Coach Chip Kellys offense. In Kellys two seasons with the Eagles, the various Philadelphia quarterbacks have averaged 30 touchdown passes and 4,500 yards through the air per season.

Philadelphia also will have a new running back for the Eagles-Falcons game, as DeMarco Murray moved from the Cowboys to Philadelphia in the off season. Moving between teams in the same division should make Murray a closely watched player in 2015. Murray had his best NFL season in 2014 with Dallas, rushing for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns.

The Eagles and Falcons last played in 2012, where Atlanta won at Philadelphia, 30-17. That victory was the seventh in a row to start the 2012 season for Atlanta, who opened 8-0 en route to a 13-3 regular-season mark. 2012 was one of Atlantas most successful seasons in franchise history, but it ended with a 28-24 loss at home to San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game.

Matt Ryan threw for 262 yards for Atlanta in the last Eagles-Falcons game, and Julio Jones was the top receiver for Atlanta in the game with 123 yards. Both Ryan and Jones remain top offensive players for Atlanta entering this seasons Eagles-Falcons game, but Atlanta hasnt been back to the playoffs since the 2012 season. The Falcons sunk to 4-12 in 2013 and 6-10 in 2014.
