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.

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.
