Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Matt Ryan tossed three first-half touchdown passes in the Atlanta Falcons' 30-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ryan, who was 17-of-20 for 197 yards in the opening 30 minutes, finished the day with 262 yards on 22-of-29 efficiency for the Falcons (7-0), who are off to their best start in franchise history and remain the NFL's lone unbeaten team.

Julio Jones had five receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Michael Vick was 21-of-35 for 191 yards and a score for Philadelphia (3-4), which lost its first game coming off a bye week during the Andy Reid era. Reid had been 13-0 in his career coming off the idle week.

LeSean McCoy had a rushing and receiving score in the setback.
