Nearly a beat for beat Playoff re-enactment. Philly Special included
I'm not worried about Foles, this was the same Falcons D that confounded him even in the Playoffs. If he can't do shit against Tampa Bay, I assume he's starting again, I'll be worried. This was an Eagles team also down top receiver Alshon Jeffery, Mack Hollins went on the DL as well, and everyone just seemed a bit off. Luckily, Jay Ajayi was not and the run game showed up second half, Sproles fought like Sproles usually does, Clement had maybe the run of the game, and Ajayi showed he's ready to have more touches, what bad ankle? Ertz and Dallas need to step up next week if Alshon is still out, Agholor caught everything his way but couldnt get the yardage, we need to scare the cornerbacks more and Foles has the ability to do it. Again. Atlanta is one thing, Tampa Bay is another, get it done.
The D can't be praised more though, a few hiccups, but the only TD they gave up was really when the momentum shifted. They had goal line stances, they suffocated Matt Ryan a lot, and when people decided to shadow Jones, Darby made him miserable, hoping to see more kinks worked out against Tampa as well. Bradham will also be back, him and Hicks are gonna make people miserable.
A messy game, but the first game of the year with the Thursday Night Football Curse, I'm happy we won, and I'm shocked the game was so similar, literally down to the last play. 1-0 against one of the top tier NL teams, let's keep it moving, get everyone healthy, and watch how Sunday goes...
