    Week 13 Eagles(38) @ Falcons(41)

    Falcons Pull Out of Tailspin
    In a high scoring shootout featuring two high powered offenses leaders the desperate Falcons managed to get a much needed win. In a game that featured both teams scoring on offense, defense, and special teams Atlanta pulled themselves out of a 3 game losing streak while the Philadelphia Eagles lost ending a 3 game winning streak.

    The Eagles won the toss and decided to open the game with a kickoff. The Falcons looked like the Falcons we remember from the beginning of the season as to they marched down the field picking the Eagles defense apart scoring on a Michael Turner finding his way into the end zone on a 3 yard rush. On the ensuing possession Donavan McNabb would be picked off setting up a Falcons FG. The Falcons seemed poised to take control when Reggie Bush took the kickoff to pay dirt. A Falcons INT would then set up a Philly TD as McNabb would find Bush in the end zone on a 13 yard pass making it 10-14 Philadelphia.

    The second quarter saw Ryan being picked again and two Falcons punts as the Eagles would score 10 to Atlanta’s 3 points making it 24-13. As the second half began Atlanta’s defense would make a key stop setting up a Ryan to Norwood TD. The Falcons D would make another stop only to see Ryan picked for six by Samuel. With the momentum beginning to shift to Philly, Jerious Norwood would show his speed as he took the kickoff 99 yards for a TD keeping Atlanta alive. On the ensuing possession McNabb would again be picked only this time T. Decoud would take it to the house giving Atlanta their first lead since the first quarter.

    As the fourth quarter began the Eagles were determined not to give up and scored on a 10 yard L. McCoy TD making it 38-34 Philadelphia. Still having plenty of time left Matt Ryan marched the Falcons down the field, completing a key fourth down pass to R. White, and scored on a 3 yard pass to O. Mughelli. Still having some time left on the clock the Eagles would turn the ball over on downs and Atlanta would take a knee to end the game.

    Not for me it's not. Unless you count a nail biter for #1 pick overall.

    Right now I'm looking offense for my first round pick, or cornerback. Depends on what the best player is available. I'm wanting either running back or wide receiver on offense. No need for quarterback. Offensive line is good and young. Defense is okay, but I can wait on position players on that side of tha ball till later rounds or through free agency except cornerback. Need another player besides Talib at corner.
