At the end of the day the score didn’t reflect the relative disaster that was the Eagles 27 to 20 loss versus the Green Bay Packers.
Many sports pundits predicted the Packers to be Super Bowl contenders, the Eagles at best a 10-win team. However, the Eagles were able to make a game of what seemed to be an easy win for the Cheeseheads.
The first game in the "new era" of Eagles football had a little bit of everything; big play offense, clutch performances on the special teams, injuries, and a few surprises.
In the end the Eagles' and their fans came up short but certainly could walk away feeling as though their team was close to getting the victory.
As week one in the NFL is always the first glimpse into what might be expected for each team the rest of the season, there was a lot Philly fans and more importantly other NFL teams were able to glean from the Eagles week one performance against the Green Bay Packers.
