Foles Re-Enacts Philly Special As Eagles Win NFL Opener

Foles Re-Enacts Philly Special As Eagles Win NFL Opener

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

The decision to delay the game came at 8:01 p.m. ET when the National Weather Service warned the NFL of an approaching storm that contained both lightning and gusty winds. It was also the same end zone at Lincoln Financial Field.

Atlanta's offense has struggled in the red zone for some time, with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones confoundingly unable to connect. I'm not even entirely sure, because the world's sorest victor made headlines by trolling the Patriots and Tom Brady when asked about one of the few highlights of the night: the successful execution of the pass play that Tom Brady dropped in the Super Bowl.

The 29-year-old Texan Foles completed 19-of-34 passes for a total of 117 yards.

The hosts are without quarterback Carson Wentz as he continues to recover from knee ligament injuries, with Nick Foles expected to continue in Doug Pederson's team until October-time.

The Eagles capped the drive with a one-yard, go-ahead touchdown run by Ajayi, who was born in London, and a conversion to take the lead. In the Super Bowl, Foles was a decoy, as he pretended to call an audible at the line of scrimmage, while the ball was snapped directly to Clement. Ajayi moved with his parents to the USA when he was seven years old. 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.

The league might have a problem on its hands, because one of the top-rated defenses from 2017 is looking as ferocious as ever, and is oozing with confidence coming off a championship run that has armed them with valuable experience. "We needed to do something".

"We put a big emphasis on red zone", safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "We trust our players, so when we get down to it, it's nothing complex".
