Ajayi inspires Eagles to winning start against Falcons

But Pederson turned to his trick plays and called Foles' number in the third quarter to invigorate the offense and the crowd. Atlanta outgained Philadelphia 113-0 in the first quarter but only managed to take a 3-0 lead despite two trips deep into the red zone, the first ending when Devonta Freeman was thrown for a 1-yard loss on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line.

Jones finished with 10 receptions for 169 yards and had a carry for another 11 yards.

The defence fed off that energy with a strong goal-line stand on the opening series, stopping the Falcons three times at the 1.

The Eagles offense was booed on its way to the tunnel at halftime after gaining just 68 yards on 30 plays. We also fold in opponent-adjusted PFF grades into our machine-learning algorithm to factor in roster changes and possible asymmetric mismatches that can occur through the course of a game. The Eagles made sure to take away any outside runs the Falcons had as part of their zone read running game.

Atlanta will start the season out on a winning note taking down Foles and the hungover Super Bowl Eagles.

The play technically wasn't the same as the "Philly Special", but it ended with Foles catching the ball.

Nick Foles wasn't sharp but played mistake-free until a pass bounced out of rookie Dallas Goedert's hands and went right to Atlanta's Deion Jones. A sack by Fletcher Cox on third down was negated by Derek Barnett's offside penalty to keep the drive going.

On a hot, muggy night, it looked more like an August preseason game than a playoff rematch.

Eagles fans are naturally brazen, so what do you think will happen when you mix bad weather and a Super Bowl banner unveiling?

Tom Brady did indeed drop it.

The first half of the game was a slog, with both teams failing to produce a touchdown. However, collectively, their will broke down toward the end of the game.
