Falcons Vs. Eagles Score: Roddy White Touchdown Catch Has Falcons Up 7-0 Early

The Falcons defense stepped up early, and it didn't take much longer for the offense to follow suit. On only the second possession of the game, Ryan and the gang took advantage of some favorable field position, courtesy of Eric Weems, and marched all the way down the field for a score.

You can actually credit Mike Mularkey for this one (shocking, I know). He made some great play selections, giving Philly a healthy dose of Michael Turner while mixing in a few of his typical short, controlled passes that went to Tony Gonzalez and Roddy White. Then on third-and-goal, Matt Ryan found Roddy in the back of the endzone for a tiptoe catch and a score, the first of the game and the Falcons' first offensive touchdown of the season.

As the first quarter comes to a close, Michael Vick and the Eagles offense are now on the move and will look to provide an answer to the Ryan's TD pass. Falcons lead 7-0.
