Chip Kelly’s revamped Eagles squad made their debut on Monday Night Football and the results were, um, mixed. A Sam Bradford pick late in the 4th killed a Philly comeback attempt and allowed the Falcons (a one point home underdog) to escape with a 26-24 win. All eyes were on new Philly acquisitions Bradford and DeMarco Murray, but it was Atlanta wideout Julio Jones that stole the show with 141 yards receiving and 2 TDs. The MNF triumph marked the first victory in the tenure of new Atlanta coach Dan Quinn and the Falcons will go for win #2 in New York this Sunday. The Eagles are aiming to bounce back in their home opener against the Cowboys.
