Matt Ryan threw five incompletions from inside the 10-yard line in the final seconds, including a 5-yard fade caught by Julio Jones on the final play, but Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby kept Jones from coming down inbounds. Instead, he reached into the Patriots' bag of tricks and stole the exact same play the Patriots ran against them in the Super Bowl. Nelson Agholor's 15-yard pass to Foles extended a drive that ended with Jay Ajayi's first of two TD runs. If he is able to defeat this great Eagles team, this is a win that could propel him to the top of the MVP list. With Carson Wentz still recovering from knee surgery and wide receiver Alshon Jeffery also sidelined, the unit was out of sync. Ajayi moved with his parents to the United States when he was seven years old.
