Falcons vs. Eagles 2016: Who to watch in Philadelphia

New, comments

Wondering who to watch when the Falcons take on Philly? We've got you.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons will look to have a comfortable lead in the NFC South going into their bye next week, and the Eagles are in the way.

Here's who we're watching.

Jalen Collins, Cornerback

With Trufant out with a shoulder injury this week, Jalen Collins could be Lincoln Financial Field as a starting cornerback this week. The second round pick out of LSU had a very strong game against the Buccaneers last weekend and could be in for another one with the Eagles offense not featuring any truly dominant receiving option.

Andy Levitre, Left Guard

Levitre has quietly had a great season in between Jake Matthews and the newly added Alex Mack. Playing against Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham will be a task, though, as the Eagles 7th ranked pass defense can be attributed to the trenches.

De'Vondre Campbell/Deion Jones, Linebackers

Both of these rookies have had stellar starts to their career. Their sideline-to-sideline ability and coverage skills brought them to Atlanta, and they'll be needed against a speedy Darren Sproles who has assumed the starting role over the last several weeks.

Who's on your radar?
