Fans and NFL analysts highly anticipate an epic potential NFC Championship match up between Michael Vick and the 9-4 Philadelphia Eagles v. the 11-2 (Best in the NFC) Atlanta Falcons, according to multiple sources.
With three games left in the regular season, it's likely that both teams will make the playoffs and only 120mins (two games) will be in the way of Vick leading his new flock into the Georgia Dome against the revamped Dirty Birds.The Eagles and Falcons are playing at a high level, so this match up is not far fetched.
Vick has thrown for 2,513 yards and 17 touchdowns with 4 interceptions (all in the last 3 games played) so far this season, but his efficiency as a pocket QB has greatly improved.
Matt Ryan, who took over the QB duties for Vick in 2008, has thrown for 3,147 yards and 22 touchdowns with 8 interceptions so far this season. Ryan is in his third year of filling up the big shoes that Vick left behind in Atlanta, but he has not yet gained the respect that he and his teammates deserve from other NFL teams despite their NFC best record at 11-2.
The Falcons have more motivation than ever to prove the league wrong, and with the outstanding play from Vick so far, it is hard to not pick these two teams to play for the right to say they are the best team in the NFC and for a chance to play in Superbowl XLV.
