Eagles hold off Falcons to begin title defense

"It was deja vu, " said cornerback Ronald Darby, who covered Jones on the last play this time around instead of Jalen Mills.

Foles caught another pass in a clutch spot to spark a sputtering offense that looked out of sync while the defense picked up right where it left off last time it faced Atlanta.

In the third quarter, Doug Pederson called a variation of the "Philly Special" that became the highlight of the team's Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots in February.

"I was pleased with the variety in terms of calling plays, especially down in the red zone", Quinn said Friday after watching the tape.

The Falcons were able to move the ball well in between the sticks but once they reached the red zone, it seemed as though nothing would work. When you're down closer, obviously you can't throw over a defender anymore. That's not to say it's just players, that's all of us.

Matt Ryan to Julio Jones failed again. "I'm over there thinking, yeah, this is the same kind of game so let's go out and win it the same way".

As was noted frequently throughout the 2017 season, the NFL's ratings have been eroding at an alarming pace, with the divisive anthem protests only exacerbating the problem previous year. This trick play saw quarterback Nick Foles take the snap in shotgun, hand it to running back Corey Clement on his left, who pitched it to wide receiver Nelson Agholor on a reverse, who finally tossed it to Foles for a 15-yard gain. "And then of course we were sort of struggling in the run game and just trying to get a rhythm and a feel and putting different guys in there in the second half".

Matt Ryan threw five incompletions from the 10-yard line in the final seconds, including a 5-yard fade caught by Julio Jones on the final play, but Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby kept Jones from coming down inbounds.
