Philadelphia Eagles vs. Atlanta Falcons
Both the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons have been at the top of the NFC at different points throughout their histories, with those histories intersecting throughout a rivalry that has decided who will play in the Super Bowl at times. The rivalry between these teams has been going on since 1966, when they first squared off in Philadelphia.
Key players to have taken part in this rivalry include legends at the quarterback position, including the golden age of the rivalry that included showdowns between Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick, two previous Madden cover athletes who could bend defenses to their respective wills. Defensive standouts like Brian Dawkins and DeAngelo Hall made things more difficult for those quarterbacks, in ways that many teams simply could not.
Historic Eagles vs. Falcons Games
The Eagles are 2-1 against the Falcons in playoff games, with both of those wins coming in the most recent postseason meetings. The most iconic game between these teams came in the 2005 NFC Championship Game, where the Eagles won 27-10 to advance to the Super Bowl against the New England Patriots. Two touchdown passes from Donovan McNabb to Chad Lewis made the difference in that game, as the Eagles defense held Vick to 11 completions in his 24 pass attempts.
Philadelphia also beat the Falcons in the Divisional round of the playoffs in 2002, with a 20-6 final score. The only touchdown in the first three quarters of the game came on a Michael Vick interception returned for a touchdown, with the Eagles adding on a Donovan McNabb touchdown for insurance in the fourth quarter. These two playoff wins for the Eagles were a part of what is considered to be the golden age of the Eagles in terms of this rivalry, where the Eagles were elite on both sides of the ball, and were able to impose their will against even the best teams in the NFC, including the Falcons.
In the first playoff meeting between the Eagles and Falcons, the Falcons scored a 14-13 win in the NFC Wild Card round, with Steve Bartkowski outplaying Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski in a game where both defenses were the stars of the show, and a missed extra point in the first quarter of the game proved to be the difference maker that sent the Falcons forward in the playoffs.
