Goose egg in Week 1
Gage failed to catch either of his two targets in Sunday's 32-6 loss to the Eagles.
Gage was far from the only Falcons player who struggled in the opener, as Atlanta failed to get into the end zone offensively and gave up at least a touchdown in every quarter to boot. On the bright side, Gage clearly is locked in as the team's No. 2 receiver. He played 49 of 72 offensive snaps, trailing only Calvin Ridley (61) while no other wide receiver played more than 19. Gage, along with the rest of the Falcons, will look to pick things up in Tampa Bay in Week 2.
