"We've been communicating and working together cohesively since the spring, so we expect to go out and there and play well, have success", Kelce said. This is something we're going to have to stick by him, put the right pieces around him and help him learn how to play that position as well.

Erving's bad snap will be pointed to as a key moment - and it was - but overall, Griffin played the opener the same way he did the preseason. "It's going to be exciting to watch them grow".

Great throw: Perhaps Wentz's best throw of the day was a 35-yard pass to Nelson Agholor for a touchdown.

The debuts won't just be limited to the men behind center as Eagles coach Doug Pederson and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz will join Browns coach Hue Jackson in their respective new roles on the sideline.

"I felt very confident", Wentz said.

Quarterback Chase Daniel: "I thought he handled it really well. I think he'll do well". But while the team is still 0-0, it is a time of hope and joy about football being back. "I'm excited I'm here in Philadelphia, and I'm ready to go for Week 1".

That being said, here are five things Eagles fans would want to see happen to assure "The Birdgang" walks out with a victory. We here at Dawg Pound Daily look to keep the conversation going right here throughout the game.

Just like the Browns copying the Eagles with a new quarterback, the Eagles will copy the Browns with a new head coach to start the season.

Cornerback Joe Haden has 16 career interceptions, which is 16 more than fellow starter Jamar Taylor had in his three previous seasons in Miami. The next time the Browns got the ball back, that is when the aforementioned disastrous sequence with the errant snap, followed by a Wentz touchdown, but the Eagles up 22-10. But the Browns insist they see Griffin as someone they can develop to be their long term quarterback, planning on putting pieces around him and tailoring the offense to his abilities.

But instead of punting it, the Browns tried to catch the Eagles off guard.

The Browns finished the first quarter with exactly zero first downs. We have the most respect for that offensive group. With 10 seconds remaining on third-and-8 at Cleveland's 44, Crowell caught a pass from Griffin, gained 14 yards and appeared to get out of bounds with a second or two left.

FANTASY FACTS: Griffin was 12 of 26 for 190 yards and one interception.

Matthews said he's been impressed with Wentz since the beginning of training camp and believes that Wentz is capable of leading the Eagles.
