"That's where we got it from", Eagles coach Doug Pederson said.
Ya think? We wrote last month about how the ongoing drama over players protesting the national anthem was going to hurt the league - and earlier this week sports apparel giant Nike poured gasoline on the fire by launching a new advertising campaign starring former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. We were in 12 (one RB, 2 TEs). "We needed a little boost, a little something, we needed to make a play, so it was just the right time for it". "We had the right one on - if there's a double that goes to Julio, it goes to another player; if there's a double that goes to Mohamed or stays where it was, it goes somewhere else".
If the Eagles need any help at receiver once Wentz is cleared to play after knee surgery last December, Foles is ready to go.
The struggles in the red zone are nothing new for Atlanta, which ranked 23rd in RZ percentage last season. They were doing it all night (Jones was targeted 19 times and had 10 catches for 169 yards).
That's right. Eagles fans obviously were not happy with the performance of their team, though, both squads on the field did not play an elite brand of football in the first half.
In his first season as the team's offensive coordinator in 2017, Steve Sarkisian directed Atlanta to a No. 8 ranking in total offense.
Jay Ajayi had 62 yards rushing on 15 carries. Jay Ajayi would score from 1 yard out later in the drive to give the Eagles their first lead of the game.
Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks had 1½ sacks in his first game since rupturing his Achilles tendon last October.
"Us executing that play at the end, we've got to nail that", Quinn said. The Falcons could not find the end zone in three ties and when head coach Dan Quinn made a decision to go for it on fourth down, Devonta Freeman was stuffed at the line of scrimmage. Long snapper Josh Harris had his streak of 103 consecutive games played end because of a hip injury.
