Philadelphia Eagles beat Atlanta Falcons 18-12 in National Football League season opener

NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles Video: Philly fans boo team off field two quarters after winning Super Bowl

Tom Brady couldn't catch Danny Amendola's pass on a third-and-5 in the second quarter, which would have been a big gain for New England - if not a touchdown.

After the game, Pederson and offensive lineman Lane Johnson confirmed that they took the play from the Patriots. That play was called "Philly Special" but Foles said "Philly Philly" in the huddle.

Foles hardly looked like Super Bowl MVP until coach Doug Pederson called his number in the third quarter when the offense needed a spark. With some quick moves, QB Nick Foles snagged a 15-yard pass from teammate Nelson Agholor on a reverse to seal an 18-12 victory for the Eagles and some respect from the more than just the fans at Lincoln Financial Field.

Of course we also support the right of league administrators and team owners to fine, suspend or otherwise discipline players who refuse to comply with league policy on the national anthem. Instead, he reached into the Patriots' bag of tricks and stole the exact same play the Patriots ran against them in the Super Bowl. "I know people want to talk about a lot of other things, but I just really want to stick on football and focus on being the best I can be for this team". We're disappointed that we didn't make those plays tonight. But the failure on the final play was all too reminiscent of Ryan's incompletion to Jones on fourth down with 1:05 left in the divisional playoffs in January, again helping Philly survive. "However, five trips and only 12 points that's tough and that's not going to get the job done against a good team".

Atlanta's drive resulted in a punt, when they should have been in the red zone.

The game was a sloppy and low scoring affair as there were only 30 points in total and 26 penalties. The Falcons led 6-3 at the half on a pair of Matt Bryant field goals.

Isolate the audience served up by crown jewel of NBC's scripted lineup (11.1 million viewers, "This Is Us") and the NFL Kickoff game improved on that drama's season average by 71 percent.
