Falcons at Eagles: Weather delay to start season 

The Eagles and the Falcons both left the field and a message was posted on the scoreboard telling the festive pre-game crowd to seek cover in the concourses. 

Weather is expected to clear about 8:30 p.m. and 8:55 p.m. is slated to be the new starting time. But that time could be pushed back depending on the storm. 

Heavy rain was falling and lightning was seen in the metro area.
