Atlanta Falcons falter once again against the Philadelphia Eagles

NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles

Compared to a year ago, the season opener, starring the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles and the previous season's runner-up Atlanta Falcons, was down a troubling 8%, managing just a 13.4/5 in the metered markets, according to Deadline. The Eagles ran the New England Patriots' failed trick play from that game. That was after an extra chance for Atlanta after Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks was called for illegal contact on fourth-and-goal from the 10.

In a near-mirrored version of last year's playoff loss in Philadelphia, the Falcons drove to the red zone in the north end of Lincoln Financial Field with the game on the line. That's all of us: getting the right design, the right training.

"It was the same play the Patriots used - the one that Tom dropped", he said after the game. "However, five trips and only 12 points that's tough and that's not going to get the job done against a good team".

"That's a total disrespect for everything we stand for", he said. Jenkins raised his fist during "The Star-Spangled Banner" previous year and in the first preseason game as one of the most high-profile National Football League players protesting racial inequality and other social injustices.

"I was pleased with the variety", Quinn said of the play calls.

Here's a look at the plays stacked on top of one another.

To quarterback Matt Ryan's credit, he did not blame offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian.

Nick Foles was not his Super Bowl self in the first half Thursday night, averaging just 3.6 yards per pass attempt, and the offense was outgained by Falcons receiver Julio Jones 89-68 over the first two quarters.

Jay Ajayi's second rushing touchdown, an 11-yard rumble, gave the Eagles the lead with 2:25 remaining, after Darren Sproles converted a third-and-8 and Corey Clement had a 21-yard run earlier in the drive.

Wentz, who hasn't been medically cleared for contact, threw passes and did other drills while wearing a brace on his left knee during warmups.
