Falcons Fall Short Against Eagles Again

Nick Foles

Matt Ryan couldn't connect with Julio Jones in the end zone on the final play as the Eagles held on for an 18-12 win against the Falcons to open the NFL season in Philadelphia.  Jay Ajayi's second touchdown of the  night with 2:19 left in the fourth quarter put the Eagles ahead.  Ajayi finished with 15 carries for 62 yards as Philly began  defense of its first Super Bowl title with a win.  Jones was the lone  bright spot for Atlanta's offense, piling up 10 catches for 169 yards.   The Falcons lost to the Eagles 15-10 in the NFC Divisional Round last season.
