NFL SEASON HAS COME AGAIN !
NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
On Monday Night in the opening week, Atlanta Falcons had met again Philadelphia Eagles since NFC championship game last January. Quarterback Micheal Vick of Atlanta, who visited Japan to play with Indianapolis Colts last month, became the first Atlanta's scorer in this season when he rushed 7 yards to touch down in the 1st quarter. Atlanta's early lead gave them a 14-10 victory over Eagles.
It was offencive line men for Falcons to get a early lead. Thanks to them, rushing plays including Vick's touchdown run exercised their power. Dirty Bird had no point after 2 touchdowns, that was why it was big for them.
I could not watch this recorded-game immediately, so when I finished to watch it, week 2 had come in which Atlanta arrived at Seattle to get a loss, 18-21.
Now I'm looking forward to watching Super Bowl XL at Detroit on February 5 in next year.
