Rest as­sured, after watch­ing the Ea­gles take down the Pa­tri­ots in last year’s Su­per Bowl, and suf­fer­ing a 15-10 loss on this field in the di­vi­sional round of the 2017 NFL play­offs, the Fal­cons en­ter this sea­son lid-lifter with dag­gers in their eyes. Yes, we know that 0-4 teams in the pre­sea­son are just 23-41 SU in sea­son open­ers, and that de­fend­ing Su­per Bowl cham­pi­ons are 14-3 SU in Game One of the sea­son the last seven­teen years. But not a one of them had a right-back play­off re­venge chip on its shoul­der. At­lanta im­proved its de­fense 55 YPG last sea­son and is as a dog when seek­ing dou­ble re­venge. They’re also 7-1 ATS in their last eight games on Thurs­day. With the Ea­gles just 2-7 ATS in home open­ers, the Dirty Birds com­plete their flight plan tonight. Sun­day, Septem­ber 9
