Ajayi inspires Eagles to winning start against Falcons

Ajayi inspires Eagles to winning start against Falcons

NBC's TV coverage registered an extremely rare viewership peak in the first quarter, due to the 45-minute weather delay, with an average of 21.7 million viewers from 9:30-9:45 p.m. ET. We also fold in opponent-adjusted PFF grades into our machine-learning algorithm to factor in roster changes and possible asymmetric mismatches that can occur through the course of a game. "We're really good at what we do, and we detail every small thing", Jenkins said. Ronald Darby prevented Julio Jones from making a catch in the left corner of the end zone on the last play.

Against New England, tight end Trey Burton took a flip from Clement on a reverse and threw a 1-yard TD pass to Foles to give the Eagles a 10-point halftime lead.

After the game, however, Johnson compared the trickery to another play that made an appearance in the Super Bowl. Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins addressed the joyous crowd, with fans on the field behind him and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie with the Lombardi trophy in hand beside him.

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

Ryan and Jones and center Alex Mack are three of the league's best at their positions. However the officials ruled he didn't have possession, an arguably dubious verdict that was upheld when Falcons coach Dan Quinn challenged it.

"The ability to get back out there and have fun and celebrate and have passion no matter the play, it feels good", Hicks said.

By the time the Falcons realized what hit them, Agholor found a streaking Foles wide open down the sideline for a 15-yard gain and first down.

Notes: Long snapper Josh Harris was limited in practice Tuesday after missing Monday's session with a hip injury.
