The Eagles are hosting the new season's first match after ending a 51-year wait for a Super Bowl crown last season, beating the New England Patriots 41-33.

The opening kickoff was delayed by 45 minutes due to thunderstorms.

Trailing 3-6 to open the second half, Philadelphia came out flying and turned the tables after getting momentum from a play that may look a bit familiar.

"It's a credit to him and how well he's worked in the offseason and obviously in training camp", coach Doug Pederson said Friday.

On a night when he struggled noticeably, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan's final pass to Julio Jones in the end zone fell incomplete, producing a similar outcome to Atlanta's divisional playoff heartbreaker at Lincoln Financial Field in January.

The Eagles capped the drive with a one-yard, go-ahead touchdown run by Ajayi, who was born in London, and a conversion to take the lead.

Thiem: Nadal defeat will stick in my mind forever
But now I wish him the title the most, that's for sure. "Yeah, of course, I played a lot of long and tough matches in my career". Dominic Thiem went on long into the small hours, with Nadal eventually prevailing in a pulsating deciding-set tiebreak .

He appeared to resurrect one of the biggest plays in Super Bowl history by dialing up a fresh take on the Philly Special.

The defense is loaded with talent, has another year in Schwartz's system under its belt, and now carries additional wisdom gained through its Super Bowl run.

But early in the second Nelson Agholor found Nick Foles for a 15-yard gain ahead of Ajayi's first touchdown. Ajayi moved with his parents to the USA when he was seven years old.

"We needed to do something", Foles told NBC of the "Philly Special II" in an on-field interview postgame. "We trust our players, so when we get down to it, it's nothing complex".

People need the diversion of the National Football League, ratings for the Kickoff Game reveal.

Yellow laundry littered the field all night, as the teams combined for 26 accepted penalties for 236 yards, more than the Eagles gained all game (232).
