NFL GameDay Morning host and former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner thinks Saturday’s game between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles will be a dogfight.

Warner said he thinks the Falcons playing the Eagles at this point in the season after the Eagles had a bye-week is the perfect opportunity to catch the No. 1 seed off guard. 

The full segement from Sunday’s show can be watched below:

“The way that (Falcons) defense played last night and really hasn’t gotten a credit it deserves all year long, they’ve been good all year long,” Warner said. “And then you have a ball control team not making mistakes on offense, may not get as many points. I think it’ll be great football game.”

Warner went on to say the game will be an interesting matchup between the Falcons defense and the Eagles’ offense which has looked different after the loss of quarterback Carson Wentz to a season-ending ACL injury.

The game kicks off Saturday at 4:35 p.m. from Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field and can be watched on NBC.
