PAT’S THOUGHTS:

Atlanta is the play here, but if you haven’t made it you have lost a ton of value as this line has moved from 4.5 to 1.  Philly has lost their edge. They turned emotion into a hell of a playoff run.  Word is they have been reading their press clippings a little too much this offseason, and this team isn’t talented enough to skate by without having a chip on their shoulder. On the flip side, Atlanta is very good and will be hungry.  Their O will be a lot better after drafting Calvin Ridley to compliment Julio.  They will have the emotional edge after getting bounced by the Eagles in the playoffs last season.  Finally, Philly is dealing with injuries to Wentz, Jefferies, Peters and Graham.  Atlanta is the play here.  The Super Bowl Hangover is real.
