I STARTED the week resolved to pick the Falcons, 5-0 at home this season, 12-1 over the past 2 years in their cozy dome. The Eagles have been both plucky and lucky in winning the past 2 weeks, and their injury list seems to be growing, not shrinking. They are due for a reality check. However, then I heard Matt Ryan was out, and Michael Turner might be, too. You look at the Falcons' recent work, other than a reasonably close loss at New Orleans, 35-27 on Nov. 2, not much impresses.

A MAN who fatally shot an Upper Darby barber in front of his customers, one of whom was a 4-year-old boy, was the boyfriend of the barber's ex, police said Thursday. Within 24 hours of the afternoon shooting, Sharif Wynn, 27, was charged with murder and related offenses in the shooting of Michael Turner, 35, at Modern Hair Designs on Copley Road about 2 p.m. Wednesday. Wynn entered the barbershop dressed in all black Muslim clothing, announced a robbery and told all six people in the shop to get on the floor, said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Police say one thing was evident almost immediately after a barber was gunned down execution-style in a shop near the 69th Street Terminal on Wednesday: The victim knew his killer. A day after the midafternoon shooting, which occurred in the presence of several patrons, including a 4-year-old boy, Upper Darby Township police arrested Sharif Wynn, 27, of the 5800 block of North Howard Street in Philadelphia, Superintendent Michael Chitwood said. Wynn was charged with the murder of Michael Turner, 35, also known as Michael Boone, whose last known address was the 7100 block of West Chester Pike, Upper Darby.

Recent history: The Eagles defeated the Falcons at the Linc last season, 31-17, and lead the series, 17-11-1. OFFENSE Eagles 403 yards per game (7th) Falcons 386 yards per game (11th) Quarterback Eagles Mike Vick's mobility puts pressure on defenses in two ways. He not only can run for first downs, but his ability to get outside and extend plays puts tremendous pressure on the secondary to stay with his receivers. You saw that when he gave DeSean Jackson time to lose the Rams' Quintin Mikell on a 6-yard TD. Falcons Matt Ryan has a 33-14 record as a starter.

Both are from the Philly area. Both were stars in college. Both are rookie quarterbacks and both made their NFL debuts yesterday. And one more thing: Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco both were winners their first time out. Ryan, the Penn Charter High product, threw for a touchdown on his first NFL pass in Atlanta's 34-21 win over visiting Detroit. Flacco, from Audubon (N.J.) High, ran for a 38-yard touchdown and Baltimore held off visiting Cincinnati, 17-10. Ryan electrified the crowd with a 62-yard touchdown pass to Michael Jenkins 1 minutes, 27 seconds into the game - before many fans had settled in their seats.

Germantown Academy halfback Matt Blewitt wasn't thinking about setting the school's career rushing record Saturday during halftime of his game at Peddie School. Instead, he was wondering how he would endure the wrath of his coach, Bill Caum, over GA's slim 9-0 lead, the result of three Greg Davis field goals of 20, 30 and 17 yards. Meanwhile, the Patriots hurt themselves with 60 yards in penalties. Fortunately for Blewitt, he scored four second-half touchdowns as GA (3-1) reacted to Caum's tongue-lashing by rolling to a 42-0 rout of the host Falcons (1-1)

  40 Rushing yards for Eagles backup running back Eldra Buckley. Even if newcomer Jerome Harrison turns out to be a solid alternative to starter LeSean McCoy, it was nice to see Buckley chip in some yards against a pretty good Falcons defense. Buckley got 12 carries and averaged 3.3 yards, including a 13-yard rumble up the middle early in the fourth quarter.   78 Penalty yards for the Eagles. Overshadowed by the victory was the fact that the Birds committed nine penalties, far more than the Falcons' two flags for 30 yards.

Here is Paul Domowitch's report card from the Eagles' loss against the Falcons. Click here to enter your grades. We will publish the results in Tuesday's Daily News. RUSHING OFFENSE LeSean McCoy managed just 45 yards on 16 carries against the league's 28th-ranked run defense. And 21 of those 45 yards came in the fourth quarter when the Falcons were in their nickel and dime packages. He notched only his second rushing TD of the season early in the second quarter on a 2-yard run. McCoy has averaged just 2.6 yards per carry in the last three games.

ATLANTA - The Falcons sent a message to all the skeptics with a resounding victory Sunday over the defending Super Bowl champions. Matt Ryan threw three touchdowns passes as the defense handed the New York Giants their first regular-season shutout since 1996 in Atlanta's 34-0 win. Julio Jones caught a couple of scoring throws from Ryan, who broke his own franchise records for completions and passing yards in a season. The Penn Charter grad finished 23 of 28 for 270 yards. The Giants, meanwhile, were 0 for 3 on fourth down and missed a short field goal.

NEW ORLEANS - The Atlanta Falcons can forget about perfection, thanks to their resurgent rivals from the City that Care Forgot. Of all the teams to end Atlanta's unbeaten run, it had to be the New Orleans Saints. And it had to be a memorable, drama-filled game that left the Falcons frustrated by the 1 meager yard they could not get to take a lead inside the final 2 minutes of a 31-27 loss Sunday. "It's very frustrating," said Falcons coach Mike Smith, who is 2-7 against the Saints and 49-15 against the rest of the NFL in his four-plus regular seasons as Atlanta coach.

NEW ORLEANS - Of all the teams to end the Atlanta Falcons' unbeaten run, it had to be their resurgent rivals, the Saints, in a game filled with drama until the end. Jimmy Graham caught seven passes for a career-best 146 yards and two touchdowns, and cornerback Jabari Greer made a diving, touchdown-saving pass breakup on a late fourth-down play Sunday as the New Orleans Saints held on to hand the Falcons their first loss, 31-27. Graham and his Atlanta counterpart, veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez, both were superb in a game that showcased all the intensity and momentum changes one would expect from one of the NFL's most passionate rivalries.

THE NEW Eagles' defense of Todd Bowles didn't look all that much different Sunday than the old defense of Juan Castillo. It was like putting a fake mustache and glasses on Sofia Vergara. "They did some things a little bit differently in terms of coverage," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "At times, they crowded the line of scrimmage and their safeties were very active, which we knew they would be. They actually ended up playing closer to the line of scrimmage than we thought. "We felt like there were going to be opportunities for us to get one-on-one matchups.

LANDOVER, Md. - After the Atlanta defense knocked Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III out of Sunday's game, the Falcons' Matt Ryan kept throwing and throwing and throwing until he finally scraped up enough points to give his team its first 5-0 start in franchise history. Ryan, a Penn Charter graduate, completed 34 of 52 passes for 345 yards, and Michael Turner ran 13 yards for the go-ahead score with 2 minutes, 46 seconds to play to beat Washington, 24-17, and hand the Redskins their eighth consecutive home loss.

Wondering whether to start Arian Foster and Calvin Johnson, or to bench Tim Tebow and Steve Breaston? The network bozos specialize in that kind of advice. If you're looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 3 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Redskins. Washington's pass rush took a major hit last week with the loss of Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker. Dalton should have plenty of time to pick apart the same secondary that Sam Bradford torched in Week 2. He also has the advantage of better receivers than the Rams.
