Eagles troll Patriots with 'Philly Special' in National Football League season-opener

This offseason, Pederson said he would probably put that play call on ice, but broke out a successful variation at an opportune time to the delight of the crowd.

According to Nielsen fast national data, NBC's coverage of the NFL Kickoff Game averaged 19 million TV viewers and an 11.2 household rating, marking the lowest turnout for a season opener since 2008, when the New York Giants and Washington eked out just 13.5 million viewers and an 8.1 household rating. We were in 12 (one RB, 2 TEs). Philadelphia marched down the field after the conversion and scored their first touchdown of the game to go up 10-6.

After the game, however, Johnson compared the trickery to another play that made an appearance in the Super Bowl. "I think that's ultimately what we have to do". Appearing uncomfortable in the pocket, Ryan finished with a 5.8 yards per attempt average on 43 attempts, completing a dastardly 48.8 percent of his tosses, with one interception (in the red zone) and zero TD passes.

Despite a competitive game featuring teams that both managed to make it to the Super Bowl over the last two years - one losing in unprecedented fashion and the other winning in a remarkably entertaining game - the ratings were gloomy for a league hoping to rebound after the previous politically charged season.

This followed a revised 2.6% contraction in the first quarter, a South African statistics data has shown. The currency fell as much as 2.6% to 15.2268 against the dollar.

Atlanta's defense kept it in the game, and the Falcons had an opportunity down in the red zone to earn a victory in the game's final seconds.

A sloppy, mistake-filled game that featured 26 penalties came down to Ryan throwing an incomplete pass to Jones in the left corner of the end zone on the final play from Philadelphia's 5. "We were on the correct hash mark and it was the right time of the game". "The read was correct in terms of where we wanted to go, we just didn't execute it". Don't blame the play call.

To quarterback Matt Ryan's credit, he did not blame offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. CBS3's own Don Bell even got a kick out of it. When you're down closer, obviously you can't throw over a defender anymore. What we were not pleased with was the execution of it.
