4-0 record for the Birds at the Linc this year. Can you say home-field advantage?

108 yards and 2 TDs for running back Ryan Mathews.

7 rushing TDs for Mathews so far this year.

208 yards on the ground for the Eagles, as they controlled the game at the line of scrimmage, key in keeping the Falcon’s offense off the field.

48 yard field goal from Caleb Sturgis that sealed the win, after he missed earlier from 55 and 44.

1 TD given up by Eagles defense to the top-ranked offense in the NFL.

38:10 time of possession in favor of Eagles Sunday.

Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan.

The Eagles are developing something that has been lacking at Lincoln Financial Field - a home-field advantage.

I Don’t Get It: Still can’t quite comprehend how the refs missed that blatant helmet-to-helmet hit on Jordan Matthews.

Today’s Upper: Kudos to Doug Pederson for a great game plan, controlling the ball with the rushing game and keeping the Falcons potent offense ion the sidelines.

Quote Box: “I had confidence in Ryan to get the job done. His size and strength paid off.”

- Doug Pederson, on effort or Ryan Mathews.
