  • Will the Eagles’ Fletcher Cox need to wreck the Falcons once again? | Bob Ford

The first touchdown of the new National Football League season wasn't scored until 10 minutes into the third quarter, this after even the most stalwart fans had already endured a first half in which Atlanta posted a 6-3 lead over the defending Super Bowl champs. Nick Foles ran a pattern down the right sideline, catching a pass thrown by wide receiver Greg Ward.

"No panic, we're resilient", Pederson said.

With 7:41 remaining in the third quarter and the Eagles trailing 6-3, they were in need of a jump-start. The pass was ideal, just like Trey Burton's Super Bowl throw to Foles. Jones propelled the Falcons to the doorstep of the end zone, then sat the next four plays out watching the offense fail in both scheme and execution. The Patriots really did draw up the flawless play in the situation and if Brady had been able to catch that pass, they would've picked up a fresh set of downs.

Up to that point in the game, the Eagles offense only had 150 total yards, and they looked stagnant and out of place. "Those are things that you like to see from your top players".

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

After the game, Pederson shared name the name of the play that is sure to sit well with Eagles fans. "They won a Super Bowl for a reason, they have the same guys on defence". Overbaugh played in three games for the Vikings, including two playoff games last season. Bennett mostly stayed off the field in the preseason.

The Eagles fared slightly worse than the Falcons.

Jenkins stood with teammates while Bennett wandered behind them near the Eagles bench and adjusted his equipment. Neither Jay Ajayi, Chris Clement nor Darren Sproles were able to break the Atlanta defense and the Eagles were forced to punt more often than not in the first half.

Eagles: WR Mack Hollins was placed on injured reserve hours before the game because of a groin injury.
