Thursday night began with a "special Philly" kind of moment as the Eagles unfurled the first Super Bowl banner in franchise history.

Ryan finished 21 of 43 for 251 yards and an interception, while Jones had 10 grabs for 169 yards, well over half of the Falcons' 299 yards of total offense.

The defence fed off that energy with a strong goal-line stand on the opening series, stopping the Falcons three times at the 1.

The Falcons' offense was the first on the field and marched 64 yards to the Eagles 1-yard line. "We needed a little boost, a little something, we needed to make a play, so it was just the right time for it".

Atlanta offense still stuck in neutral: Two years removed from the offensive fireworks that propelled them to Super Bowl LI, the Falcons' struggles to generate points under coordinator Steve Sarkisian continued.


And Chris Wesselling, the presenter of the Around The NFL podcast, fears Foles may face being axed despite leading the Eagles to Super Bowl glory earlier this year and being crowned the Super Bowl MVP.

They chose to run the "Philly Special" - only this time, it was dubbed the "Philly, Philly".

Against the Falcons, Corey Clement took the snap, flipped the ball to Nelson Agholor on a reverse and the receiver lofted a throw to Foles that gained 15 yards. A sack by Fletcher Cox on third down was negated by Derek Barnett's offside penalty to keep the drive going.

"I mean, it's a good play", Foles said. Both teams looked rusty after many starters didn't play much in preseason.

National Football League legends and former Eagles will be in attendance and fans will have a chance to take photos with the Lombardi Trophy and see the full collection of 52 Super Bowl Rings. The main difference being that Tom Brady dropped that pass and Foles was able to hold on to. LS Josh Harris had his streak of 103 consecutive games played end because of a hip injury.
