The Eagles talked this week about getting DeSean Jackson more involved in the offense. They walked the walk. Jackson scored touchdowns on each of the Eagles first two drives, on a 31-yard run on an end around and a 34-yard reception. After 15 minutes, the Eagles lead the Falcons 14-0.
Philadelphia’s defense has been stout as well, holding the Falcons to three three and outs and a missed field goal. Michael Turner has just 14 yards on 6 carries, with 9 of them coming on one run.
Kevin Kolb is 5-of-7 for 81 yards and a touchdown. DeSean Jackson has 2 carries for 44 yards and a touchdown and 1 reception for a 34-yard score. LeSean McCoy has run the ball 4 times for 28 yards.
Matt Ryan is 3-for-6 for 50 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He hasn’t thrown the ball Tony Gonzalez’s way yet this afternoon.
Philadelphia has also been bolstered by good field position, averaging its own 42. Atlanta has averaged its own 19.
