The Atlanta Falcons will host the Philadelphia Eagles in their home opener on Sunday, September 15 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

After a rough 28-12 loss to the Minnesota Vikings to start the season, the Falcons will look to right the ship against a tough opponent. While the Eagles have a tough defense with defensive tackle Fletcher Cox at the center, there's another key piece the Falcons will have to stop if they want to end up in the win column.

"DeSean Jackson just blew out of the box back in Philly for the first time in what, four or five years," Falcons Radio Network analyst Dave Archer told Andy and Randy. "DeSean Jackson gives (the Eagles) that entity that they haven't had, maybe, since he's been gone."

Archer also mentions tight end Zach Ertz and running back Jordan Howard as players the Falcons defense will have to focus on.
