It took the better part of three quarters, but the first touchdown of the 2018 NFL season has been scored. Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi did the honors, slamming into the end zone on a one-yard run.

This touchdown was a long time coming. Both offenses struggled mightily in the first half.

The Atlanta Falcons looked like they’d score a touchdown on the first┬ápossession of the game. But they came up empty handed.

The touchdown (and ensuing PAT) gave the Eagles a 10-6 lead, their first lead of the game.
