NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles

NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles

"I'm just focused on what I want to do, and be a great football player for this team and be a good example in the locker room, provide great leadership". "Jones is one of the best but we got the stop".

It was an ugly first half for the Birds as they went into the locker room down 6-3.

Toss in the 570,000 average-minute audience the game delivered via NBC's various digital platforms, and overall deliveries for Thursday night's all-avian battle were down 12 percent compared to the year-ago Chiefs-Patriots blowout, which averaged 22.2 million TV and digital viewers. "I think that's ultimately what we have to do".

The Eagles fared slightly worse than the Falcons. If Matt Ryan could actually complete a touchdown pass in the red zone, Johnson probably would've been singing a different tune.

As a whole, the Falcons were able to move the ball against a good Eagles defense.

Normally, there is no shame in losing to the defending Super Bowl champions in their home opener.

The Falcons made cleaning up the red zone woes their primary emphasis this offseason and during the preseason, but both Jones and Freeman sat out all four preseason games to preserve their bodies for the regular season, which might have affected timing.

Now, that's how you catch a football. "You want to be in that position", said cornerback Ronald Darby, who was physical with Jones and pushed Jones out of bounds to force the incomplete. "The read was correct in terms of where we wanted to go, we just didn't execute it".

The protests have landed the league squarely in the middle of America's simmering culture wars, drawing the ire of US president Donald Trump - who called on owners to fire players who protested the anthem. Quinn said going with such personnel was the reason why Jones was not on the field for three plays from the 1-yard line. However, Philadelphia deserves plenty of credit for coming through when it mattered the most against Atlanta on Thursday, and top off the excitement, fans even got to see another play similar to the "Philly Special" called "Philly Philly" in the second half, which absolutely electrified the crowd.
