While many noted that the play looked a lot like the "Philly Special" from Super Bowl LII, Pederson confirmed after the game that it was actually the trick play the Patriots unsuccessfully ran in the game.
Shortly after Philadelphia fans cheered as their team's Super Bowl banner was raised, they booed the Eagles off the field at the end of the first half thanks to a lackluster showing.
This time around, Foles stood in the shotgun and handed the ball directly to Clement. After receiving the opening kickoff and marching the ball to the one-yard line, the Falcons were stuffed on three successive plays by the Eagles defense, eventually turning the ball over on downs. "We needed a little boost, a little something, we needed to make a play, so it was just the right time for it". If they can play as well as they did last season limiting the Eagles to 15-points tonight's game will be an easy win.
Back in June, Meek Mill and MMG boss Rick Ross invaded an Eagles Super Bowl ring celebration party. A sack by Fletcher Cox on third down was negated by Derek Barnett's offside penalty to keep the drive going. Leave it to the duo of quarterback Nick Foles and head coach Doug Pederson to conjure up a play call that will forever have them linked.
