The Jury Is Still Out on Foles, Another Look at Hundley, How Atlanta Could Cover Kamara

Plus, Tom Brady has a chance to attack the Buffalo D, how the Cowboys could tweak their approach for Russell Wilson, and a big test for the much-improved Ereck Flowers 1. The jury is still out on POAW (Philly’s Offense After Wentz); some of Nick Foles’s impressive numbers last week against the Giants were circumstantial. (Two examples: His TD to Trey Burton was on a blown coverage; the touchdown to Nelson Agholor was a great catch on a poor underthrow.) At times, Foles’s field vision and timing looked rusty. That…

So naturally, this allows for a lot of different preconceived notions about the city from the perspective of its surrounding outsiders. One of the leading assumptions of the city…

Falcons vs. Cowboys Recap: Atlanta’s Best Win of the Season Means Hope for the Future

I’ll be blunt: Even with Tyron Smith and Ezekiel Elliott out, I was worried the Dallas Cowboys would beat the Atlanta Falcons. Once Atlanta threw an interception on their first series and surrendered an early lead, that worry cemented into an ugly probability in my mind, and I braced for what was coming next. So imagine my surprise when what followed was pure dominance by Atlanta, a 27 point explosion with zero points from Dallas, and a truly historic performance from an underrated defensive end. Imagine my surprise when the…
