Which is to say they were not close at all.
Don't let the final score fool you. It took the Eagles' defense until midway through the fourth quarter before they got their first stop, and Michael Vick and company simply could not keep up. The Falcons won 30-17, dropping Philadelphia to 3-4 on the year.
This really feels like the day the Reid era died.
