Grade the Falcons' 26-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles

It was the best of games, it was not the worst of games.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons showcased an improved defense, a competent ground assault, and Julio Jones on Monday Night Football, and despite some second half embarrassments, they came away with the win. What I want to know is, how would you grade the team's performance?

Put me down for a B. The Eagles are a tough team, I was generally impressed by how well the defense dealt with them, and the offense looked good aside from some O-line scuffles and Matt Ryan's middling night. Considering the opponent and considering this was the first game for a new-look team with a new coach, I was pretty happy, and I was definitely happy with the end result.

How did you all feel?
