Eagles fans kick of 2018 National Football League season at Penn's Landing

Fantasy Football 2018: Thursday Night Football Start Em, Sit Em Week 1

Most people expected a close game Thursday in an 18-12 Philadelphia Eagles win over the Falcons. Atlanta outgained Philadelphia 113-0 in the first quarter but only managed to take a 3-0 lead despite two trips deep into the red zone, the first ending when Devonta Freeman was thrown for a 1-yard loss on fourth-and-goal from the 1-yard line. 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.

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. "We needed a little boost, a little something, we needed to make a play, so it was just the right time for it".

It was eerie how closely the ending of Eagles-Falcons Thursday night resembled the final moments of the divisional playoff game between these two teams in January.

"We're going to go back and look, for sure, and you know we put a good bit of work in there and we still have more to do", Quinn said.

Spacey apologized for any inappropriate conduct with Rapp but has not commented since and has stepped away from public life. The Spacey case, involving an adult male, was presented to Los Angeles prosecutors in April and had been under review.

Eagles fans had waited 52 years to raise a Super Bowl banner. If they can play as well as they did last season limiting the Eagles to 15-points tonight's game will be an easy win.

"I learned that we're a group that can persevere, that can fight and can overcome some adversity and have some poise", said Jenkins of his takeaways from Week 1. And here's where it's worth noting that both plays happened on third-and-5.

As the 2018 National Football League regular season kicks off Thursday, more than in years past - it appears the road to Super Bowl LIII is wide open. He wandered behind teammates near the bench and adjusted his equipment this time.

Eagles: WR Mack Hollins was placed on injured reserve hours before the game because of a groin injury.
