Watch out for this guy

PHILADELPHIA—If you happen to stumble across the Atlanta-Philadelphia game on television Sunday afternoon, be sure to keep a close eye on Falcons defensive end John Abraham (No. 55).

Why, you ask? Good question.

Since Abraham joined the Falcons in 2006, Atlanta has gone 21-8 in games where the Pro Bowl defensive end has recorded at least 0.5 sacks.

That record actually improves to a stunning 16-2 in games in which Abraham has logged at least 0.5 sacks since 2008.

Oh yeah, we almost forgot to mention that Eagles starting left tackle Jason Peters is out for this one.

He’ll be replaced by third-year tackle King Dunlap (Auburn), who will be making his first career start.

Colt McCoy may not be the only quarterback on the move today.
