  • NFL Season Opener: Twitter Reacts To Falcons' Loss To The Eagles

The 2018 National Football League regular season kicked off on Thursday night as the Philadelphia Eagles unveiled their Super Bowl banner.

Falcons: S Keanu Neal left the game with a knee injury in the first half.

The protests have landed the league squarely in the middle of America's simmering culture wars, drawing the ire of US president Donald Trump - who called on owners to fire players who protested the anthem.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby pushes Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones out of bounds on the final play of the game at Lincoln Financial Field.

Common painkillers linked to heart attack and strokes
The researchers add that while the relative risk for heart issues was seen to increase, the absolute risk for patients stayed low. It's always important to discuss medication and the potential risks it will have on your health with a GP or health professional.

For the Falcons, though, that's not the case after their 18-12 loss to the Eagles on Thursday Night.

But in case there wasn't enough proof you'd seen the Patriots fail to pull this off before, Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson removed all doubt, and let people know exactly how he felt in the process. It was actually the same play the Patriots ran against the Eagles, but in Super Bowl LII a pass to Tom Brady fell incomplete.

"I mean, it's a good play", Foles said. In the third quarter of what has been an very bad game between the Falcons and Eagles, Julio Jones made the play of the game by hauling in a 52-yard catch from Matt Ryan.

"Probably just us executing that play at the end, we've got to nail that", Quinn said. "We had the right one on - if there's a double that goes to Julio, it goes to another player; if there's a double that goes to Mohamed or stays where it was, it goes somewhere else".

Powerful quake hits Japanese island of Hokkaido
Japan sits on the Pacific " Ring of Fire " where numerous world's earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are recorded. NHK World, a public broadcaster in Japan, reported that the quakes caused "huge landslides" in the area.

Foles said they had run that play only once in practice.

"It's never discouraging", Jones said/ "We just got to keep working, stick together and make plays and get things called down there". Appearing uncomfortable in the pocket, Ryan finished with a 5.8 yards per attempt average on 43 attempts, completing a dastardly 48.8 percent of his tosses, with one interception (in the red zone) and zero TD passes.

That was confirmed today, as the overnights came in lower than any season-opening game since 2008.

US Open: Osaka makes history
Meanwhile, Osaka won a Masters title at Indian Wells and with her strong run in NY , where she will next play 2017 U.S. So far in this Open, she's held opponents scoreless in three sets, and she's dropped only one set thus far.
