Atlanta Falcons falter once again against the Philadelphia Eagles

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.

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor took a handoff on a reverse and Foles took off down the right sideline. But Pederson turned to his trick plays and called Foles' number in the third quarter to invigorate the offense and the crowd. The pass was flawless, just like Trey Burton's Super Bowl throw to Foles. "Just were looking for a big play, somebody to make a play".

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. Additionally, Atlanta will need to preform better this season against the Eagles than they did last time they played, which was in the divisional round.

"Good execution wins games", said Brady of the play, per ESPN.

In a game defined by defensive dominance and timely plays offensively, a few players made consistent plays all night to keep the Eagles in the game and eventually deliver the win. Jenkins raised his fist during "The Star-Spangled Banner" a year ago and in the first preseason game as one of the most high-profile National Football League players protesting racial inequality and other social injustices. They have a new goal - finishing the season at home in Atlanta, where the Super Bowl will be played in February. Bennett mostly stayed off the field in the preseason.

Welcome back: Several key Eagles returned to the lineup after suffering season-ending injuries on the road to the Super Bowl previous year.

Jenkins stood with teammates while Bennett wandered behind them near the Eagles bench and adjusted his equipment. He stayed in the tunnel for the last three weeks.

Falcons safety Keanu Neal left the game with a knee injury in the first half but coach Dan Quinn said it doesn't appear serious. The running game was nearly non-existent for the Eagles as well.
