The Eagles beat Washington in the season opener despite a very rocky first half. After spotting them a 20-7 lead going into halftime, the Eagles stormed to a 32-27 win to open the season.

The game brought the best and the worst out of the fans on social media, as expected. Here is the tweet of the week, though:

Eagles fans were about ready to write off the season after the first quarter.

There was frustration with the Eagles early play-calling, particularly the use of 36-year-old running back Darren Sproles.

But Sproles, and the Eagles rebounded after a sluggish start, and the fans came around.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz started to look like his old, healthy self as the offense got rolling.

It gave former Eagle Brian Dawkins a chance to remind everyone that football games are longer than they might seem.
