Philadelphia Eagles vs Atlanta Falcons 09/12/2021 – The long wait is over and the NFL regular-season schedule will finally take place with the first game between Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons. The Eagles will take the road in this game to kick off from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Atlanta Falcons had a disappointing preseason action after dropping all their three games. Both teams are expected to hit the field with all their key players on board.
