Two touchdowns from Jay Ajayi helped Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles kick off the season with an 18-12 win over Atlanta Falcons.

The first half was delayed by 45 minutes due to the weather and ended 6-3 to Atlanta thanks to two Matt Bryant field goals.

But early in the second Nelson Agholor found Nick Foles for a 15-yard gain ahead of Ajayi's first touchdown.

Atlanta regained the lead through a Tevin Coleman, run but the Eagles responded with Ajayi's second and held on despite some fierce late pressure.
