The Atlanta Falcons and defending champion Philadelphia Eagles put up a dumpster fire of a performance in the first half of Thursday’s game. It included 16 accepted penalties, nine points and whole bunch of ugly.
Meanwhile, the Eagles offense, led by quarterback Nick Foles has been atrocious. With the excessive yellow flags and penalty calls far out-numbering points on the board, the folks on Twitter are completely trashing this game.

I've disagreed with the refs so much tonight lol
And the calls have almost always been unfair toward the Falcons, and you know I am not rooting for them

Probably one of the worst games I’ve watched offensively in a while. Sarkisian thinks screens and misdirection works in the NFL. Nick Foles is still the Nick Foles we all know. Doesn’t show up until it’s needed. Can’t be a regular steady QB . #yawn #NFLPreseasonweek5

Nick Foles averaging a whopping 5.5 yards per completion tonight. Not attempt…completion.

First half of the Falcons-Eagles game…
If you like defense, you love this game.
If you like offense, you hate this game.

@AtlantaFalcons @packers GB, u should definitely move heaven & earth to get Julio Jones! Matt Ryan's petty difference clearly staining Jones legacy as well the Falcon's legacy! Throwing at TE's in DB coverage in the red zone? Pure stupidity! Rodgers & Jones in 2019! #TrustMe pic.twitter.com/kbR2dPVtfJ

And you call yourself an Eagles fan. Booing is as natural to an Eagles fan as adultery is to Bill Clinton.

Every time the Falcons are playing the Eagles or are nationally highlighted, my mom feels it’s necessary to remind me that I could have sacked @M_Ryan02 in high school, but came up short. pic.twitter.com/bjCGMPKxpf
