ATLANTA - The Philadelphia Eagles almost beat the Atlanta Falcons despite losing their top two receivers and backup Tight End. In fact, the Eagles took the lead late in the fourth quarter before the defense relinquished that lead on a 54 yard touchdown by Julio Jones. That touchdown occurred on fourth down with the game on the line.

The Eagles nearly regained the lead on the ensuing possession. That possession included a drop by Nelson Agholor that looked as if it would have gone the distance for a go-ahead score. It also included the play that ended the game, a fourth down pass from Carson Wentz to Zach Ertz that was inches short of moving the chains.

Both Agholor and Ertz took the blame for the loss. Hear what else they had to say as well as some other Eagles players by clicking on the videos below.
