Sports Talk with Brodes: Eagles Lose 24-20 to Atlanta Falcons in Week 2!
The Eagles lost a legit battle in Atlanta by a score of 24-20. It was another slow start for Carson Wentz and this offense as they failed to score points in the first quarter once again. The players were dropping like flies. Desean Jackson, Dallas Goedert, Alshon Jeffery, Corey Clement, Tim Jernigan all left the game and did not return. Jason Kelce, Carson Wentz, Sidney Jones, Nelson Agholor, and others went into the tent and missed plays. Jim Schwartz brought a ton of pressure on Matt Ryan which changed the game, until it didn't. After the Eagles took a 20-17 lead thanks to Carson Wentz making insane plays, Matt Ryan realized the blitz and hit Julio Jones on a screen which went to the house. The Falcons never looked back. This was a tough loss, but I am not discouraged!
