Dan Quinn happy with Atlanta Falcons' playcalling despite red zone woes

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

Buoyed by that play, Philadelphia drove the rest of the way down the field and their drive ended with Jay Ajayi scampering into the end zone for the first of his two second-half touchdowns. "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".

RED ZONE WOES: The Falcons were 1 for 5 in the red zone after struggling inside the opponents' 20 past year. "I'm just focused on what I want to do, and be a great football player for this team and be a good example in the locker room, provide great leadership". Ryan also has overthrown 12 of those 20 attempts. It was actually the same play the Patriots ran against the Eagles, but in Super Bowl LII a pass to Tom Brady fell incomplete.

This offseason, Pederson said he would probably put that play call on ice, but broke out a successful variation at an opportune time to the delight of the crowd.

Atlanta's drive resulted in a punt, when they should have been in the red zone. But we're going to continue to work at it and practice it. "Just were looking for a big play, somebody to make a play". The Falcons got the matchup they wanted after Ryan motioned Freeman out of the backfield, but the throw was off the mark.




In his first season as the team's offensive coordinator in 2017, Steve Sarkisian directed Atlanta to a No. 8 ranking in total offense. Jones propelled the Falcons to the doorstep of the end zone, then sat the next four plays out watching the offense fail in both scheme and execution. "In terms of calling plays, especially down in the red zone, there's certain ones that you can do from the 5 to the 10, where you get back in a little bit further you can throw over the top of somebody still".

Based on what he said, we should expect it to remain a theme throughout the season.

Prior to kicking off the National Football League season, the Eagles celebrated the accomplishments of 2017 one last time.
