Eagles Week 1, 2018 vs. Falcons

Week 1 of the Eagles 2018 regular season is now in the books! The Birds won their first game of the season in The Linc against the Atlanta Falcons by an 18-12 score. The team is now 1-0 to start the season.
The Eagles defense is why the team won this game. While every single unit started out slow, sluggish and rusty, the defense came on strong with 4 sacks, 8 tackles for a loss, an interception, and 10 passes defended. The front four, especially on blitzing schemes, were dominant overall and carried this team to victory. Nick Foles did not look like the Nick Foles of Super Bowl VII, yet Jay Ajayi looked strong scoring two touchdowns to keep the offense in the game. The Eagles special teams need to somehow get special again, too.
As always, we gave our analysis and takeaways from the game. Plus we also got into the team stats, box score and graded the positions and coaches.
