Eagles Take 12-10 Lead Into Final Quarter

Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery leads the way with 61 receiving yards while LeGarrette Blount has the team’s only touchdown.

On the opening play, quarterback Nick Foles faked a handoff and launched one deep to Torrey Smith who drew a pass interference call against cornerback Brian Poole which set the Eagles up at the Atlanta 33-yard line. However, Ajayi had the ball knocked loose by Ricardo Allen on the ensuing play and the Falcons recovered the fumble at the Atlanta 26.

The Falcons was able to capitalize on the turnover as Matt Bryant connected on a 33-yard field goal to put Atlanta up 3-0.
