Eagles fans kick of 2018 National Football League season at Penn's Landing

May JohnsonSep 10, 2018

In a thriller to begin the season, the Eagles and Falcons played a game that was eerily similar to their Divisional playoff matchup in January. The Eagles managed to win the clunker against the Atlanta Falcons, due in large part to Matt Ryan's complete ineptitude whenever the game's on the line, but it wasn't pretty.

Jones dominated the game for the Falcons, making up for 67.33% of Matt Ryan's total passing yardage.

Buoyed by that play, Philadelphia drove the rest of the way down the field and their drive ended with Jay Ajayi scampering into the end zone for the first of his two second-half touchdowns.

"I really believe we're going to make those plays as we move forward", an optimistic Ryan said after the game, via Vaughn McClure of ESPN.

Lukaku double relieves pressure on Mourinho
Pochettino was critical of his players' failure to hold on to the lead given to them by Abdoulaye Doucoure's 53rd-minute own goal. League victor under the Portuguese at Chelsea , has not seen any difference in Mourinho's persona this season.

"It was the same play the Patriots used - the one that Tom dropped", he said after the game. Of course, the Eagles were hardly at full strength with quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) and receiver Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) still not ready to play.

Atlanta's offense managed just nine points in five red-zone trips, failing on a fourth-and-1 on the opening possession and coming up empty again on the final drive.

"We put a big emphasis on red zone". "We trust our matchups and do we do our job". Tre Sullivan kicked a loose ball on a punt and the Falcons recovered the fumble at the Eagles 32.

With a 13.4/5 in the metered markets, the post-midnight ending game is down 8% from last year's kickoff of September 7, 2017. Jones only had three TD catches last season. Jenkins raised his fist during "The Star-Spangled Banner" a year ago and in the first preseason game as one of the most high-profile National Football League players protesting racial inequality and other social injustices. The running game was nearly non-existent for the Eagles as well.
