Tom Brady Nick Foles Eagles

NFL Ratings

We're disappointed that we didn't make those plays tonight.

The perennial Pro Bowl selection routinely made life tough quarterback Matt Ryan and the Falcons' offense Thursday night.

"That was a huge momentum boost for us", Foles said. 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.

Unlike the Patriots, the Eagles executed when they needed to. "You aren't going to score at will on that team".

The Eagles went back into their bag of tricks in their win over the Falcons, calling the Philly Special - this time called Philly Philly - in the third quarter to get the offense going.

But early in the second Nelson Agholor found Nick Foles for a 15-yard gain ahead of Ajayi's first touchdown.

Third body found after boat collision at California-Arizona border
Efforts resumed after daybreak Sunday, and authorities closed off the stretch of the river where the search was taking place. In the high-speed collision passengers were ejected and both vessels sunk, said the Mohave County Sheriff's Office .

Foles, who almost retired two years ago and started last season as the backup quarterback, was filling in Thursday for the Eagles' injured star Carson Wentz.

With the ball on the left hash mark, the Eagles said they knew the call before the snap as soon as tight end Levine Toilolo motioned right across the formation.

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

It may be a new National Football League season, but that didn't stop the Eagles from bringing back a play you might remember from the Super Bowl earlier this year to troll the New England Patriots.

Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks had 1½ sacks in his first game since rupturing his Achilles tendon last October. He stayed in the tunnel for the last three weeks. Instead, he dropped it, the Patriots failed to pick up the first down on the ensuing play, and then the Eagles took the ball and scored a touchdown to extend their lead. LS Josh Harris had his streak of 103 consecutive games played end because of a hip injury.
