Eagles' defense came to the rescue in opener

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.

Last February during his stint behind bars on a probation violation, Meek reacted to the Eagles defeating the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII.

A 45-minute weather probably kept the game from attracting even more people. The Falcons could not find the end zone in three ties and when head coach Dan Quinn chose to go for it on fourth down, Devonta Freeman was stuffed at the line of scrimmage.

Trump denies he discussed assassination of Syria’s Assad
Trump's comments came after Russian and Syrian warplanes resumed airstrikes against insurgents in the densely populated enclave. Let's kill the f*****g lot of them", Trump said according to Woodward's book.

Atlanta's offense has struggled in the red zone for some time, with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones confoundingly unable to connect.

In the second half, head coach Doug Pederson knew exactly what to do. Of course, the Eagles were hardly at full strength with quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) and receiver Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) still not ready to play.

Atlanta regained the lead through a Tevin Coleman, run but the Eagles responded with Ajayi's second and held on despite some fierce late pressure.

The defense is loaded with talent, has another year in Schwartz's system under its belt, and now carries additional wisdom gained through its Super Bowl run. The most memorable, however, was of course the Philly Special, the play that resulted in quarterback Nick Foles catching a touchdown pass from tight end Trey Burton. Ajayi moved with his parents to the U.S. when he was seven years old.

The play technically wasn't the same as the "Philly Special", but it ended with Foles catching the ball. "We needed to do something". Tonight that will be the difference in the game.

Up to that point in the game, the Eagles offense only had 150 total yards, and they looked stagnant and out of place. "We trust our players, so when we get down to it, it's nothing complex".
