Lane Johnson takes another shot at Patriots after Eagles opening night win

NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles

The Falcons' All-Pro receiver was body-slammed out of bounds to end the 18-12 loss to the Eagles. He called it. It was the right time again.

The struggles in the red zone are nothing new for Atlanta, which ranked 23rd in RZ percentage last season.

Pederson said Thursday night's play is called "Philly Philly", but didn't bring up the fact that Brady didn't convert back in February.

Kaepernick, 30, has not played since the 2016 season and filed a grievance last October against NFL owners for collusion, claiming they schemed to keep him off the football field because of his protests, not his football playing ability. We're disappointed that we didn't make those plays tonight.

"No panic, we're resilient", Pederson said. If Matt Ryan could actually complete a touchdown pass in the red zone, Johnson probably would've been singing a different tune.

Quinn said an open Sanu was missed on the second-down play during the final drive, when Ryan tried to hit a covered Jones in the end zone, with Jones working out of the slot. "Jones is one of the best but we got the stop".

Naturally, twitter was abuzz throughout the first National Football League game of the season, and we chose to compile some of the best reactions & tweets from Thursday night (below). Second-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian spent plenty of time in the offseason trying to improve the team's scoring efficiency. The first touchdown wasn't scored until the 3rd quarter when Eagles RB Jay Ajayi rushed in an 11-yarder, regaining the lead 10-6. He had 10 receptions for 169 yards but didn't score. Jones propelled the Falcons to the doorstep of the end zone, then sat the next four plays out watching the offense fail in both scheme and execution.

On a hot, muggy night, it looked more like an August preseason game than a playoff rematch.

The Falcons reached the red zone on their very first possession of the game, and they even ran three straight plays from the 1-yard line after Quinn made a decision to go for it on fourth down.
