Falcons fall just short vs. Eagles in season opener, 18-12

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will battle the Houston Texans in Week 1 of the season

Yellow laundry littered the field all night, as the teams combined for 26 accepted penalties for 236 yards, more than the Eagles gained all game (232).

In this video from ESPN.com's Tim McManus, the fans don't seem to even notice the rain.

But the dropped passes, including some potential interceptions, and silly errors such as a blocker on the punt team letting the ball touch his foot, looked like something straight out of, well, an exhibition game. "When you have to make the plays, you either make them or you don't". Ronald Darby prevented Julio Jones from making a catch in the left corner of the end zone on the last play.

Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles will start for the defending champion Eagles on Thursday night against Atlanta.

The Eagles did, displaying the kind of resilience that helped them to last season's title.

Hopefully Johnson has enough Patriots jokes in his arsenal to last him the whole season, because deflecting attention from how badly Foles is playing is going to require some serious slight of hand. The Falcons went with an empty set, and had Jones in the slot instead of outside.

Apple still has time to change the name, lest we all suffer people telling the same jokes for the next year . The company has remained coy about the release date, specs, pricing and just about everything else.

"That's where we got it from", Pederson said when asked about the resemblance to the failed Patriots play in the Super Bowl. At one point, tell-it-like-it-is Philly fans were booing the current Super Bowl champs on live TV for their lame efforts on the field.

All of the Atlanta Falcons players stood at attention for the duration, as did the bulk of the Eagles, while the Philadelphia-bred R&B group Boyz II Men sang the anthem.

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.

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 on a 9-yard pass from Ryan and Corey Clement had a 21-yard run earlier in the drive. We called it at the right time of the game. "So I think we learned that we have that".

The Falcons struggled in the red zone the entire 2017 season, scoring a touchdown on just 49% of trips that ranked among the bottom ten teams in the league. He had 10 receptions for 169 yards but didn't score.
