It’s the NFL Kickoff Game, featuring the Atlanta Falcons visiting the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in a rematch of last year’s divisional playoff. With Carson Wentz on the sideline, backup QB Nick Foles and a stingy Eagles defense thwarted a late fourth quarter Atlanta drive at the two-yard line, sealing a 15-10 victory. Foles and the Eagle offense would later find their groove in the NFC Championship game as well as the Super Bowl.
