Thursday Night Football Start Em, Sit Em Week 1

Thursday Night Football Start Em, Sit Em Week 1

"When you have to make the plays, you either make them or you don't".

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

"We put a big emphasis on red zone". The defense forced Ryan to throw four straight incomplete passes from the 10 on the final possession only to have a penalty give the Falcons one more chance from the 5. They all sung the Eagles fight song.

It's a week for road teams, as we're going to back Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Seattle.

On Thursday night, the Eagles couldn't move the ball against the Falcons, so Doug Pederson dug into his bag of tricks and called for "Philly Philly", a brilliant trick play that got the Eagles a first down and kickstarted their come-from-behind win.

Ajayi also rushed for a two-point conversion and quarterback Nick Foles caught a pass for the second straight National Football League game as the Eagles re-enacted a trick play from the Super Bowl before sealing the win with a defensive stand.

"It was the same play the Patriots used - the one that Tom dropped", he said after the game.

First up on the agenda is a Super Bowl LII rewatch party where fans can relive the Eagles first Super Bowl win in Franchise history.

"Offensively, we were sort of misfiring a little bit", Pederson said. Additionally, Atlanta will need to preform better this season against the Eagles than they did last time they played, which was in the divisional round.

Instead, the Falcons offered more of the same inside the 20-yard line. One, last night's game peaked with a 14.8/25 in the 9:30 - 9:45 PM ET period during the first quarter, which says a lot about viewership patterns.

Falcons safety Keanu Neal left the game with a knee injury in the first half but coach Dan Quinn said it doesn't appear serious.
