Eagles Trail 3-0 After First Quarter

After the first quarter, the Eagles trail the Falcons 3-0. Running back Jay Ajayi leads the offensive attack with 49 rushing yards and his 58 yards from scrimmage are the most he's ever had in the first quarter of a game.

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.
