L, 24-20 @ Falcons
If wide receiver Nelson Agholor holds onto that fourth-quarter pass from quarterback Carson Wentz, the Eagles likely win their Week 2 contest against the Falcons on Sunday Night Football.
Agholor’s key drop late ensured Atlanta’s late comeback would stand, and now the Eagles are looking at a 1-1 start after a game they should have won.
Philadelphia drops a bit in our NFL power rankings, too.
Wentz looked out of sync for much of the game, even coming out for a time being with injury. Despite his return, Wentz still managed just 231 pass yards with only one touchdown against two interceptions.
It wasn’t his best game, of course.
Tight end Zach Ertz was banged up, as well fellow TE Dallas Goedert. Left tackle Jason Peters will also be sore, after he went down briefly in the fourth quarter.
We’ll have to see if Philly’s injuries create any long-term implications. Right now, the story for head coach Doug Pederson and Co. will be finding some rhythm on offense while shoring up some defensive miscues, which were aplenty Sunday night.
