Carson Wentz itching to test Eagles' new weapons against Redskins
The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Redskins 30-17 in Week 1 of the National Football League season, but the result might have been different if not for a controversial replay review of the Eagles' game-winning fumble return for a touchdown. In my opinion, the following players will need to step up on Sunday to help Philadelphia start their season with a win. "This is the reason he was drafted so high".
Brandon Graham may have been biased, but when the Eagles end was asked if the Eagles' defense had an identity, it's likely that his brethren in the victorious locker room at FedEx Field would have nodded in agreement. "Yeah, preseason. I think I'll say what I said with the Miami Dolphins practice, 'Let me know when the preseason is a tiebreaker for the playoffs, and we'll worry about what our stats are in the preseason'".
The Philadelphia Eagles are 1-4 in their last five appearance at FedExField. "And we're not done".
Wentz under-threw Torrey Smith on a deep ball for the first play of the game and was sacked on the second play of the game. I felt like we got some good work, so that was part of the reason why I was able to pull them out sooner. On any day it could be somebody's night. We play hard. We just came up short. He was hurt most of last season and a lot of the Redskins hopes will hinge on Doctson at the receiver position. Included in that stat were a number of third and long conversions, a particular bugaboo that carried over from a year ago.
While I wouldn't put Jay Grudon atop my list of head coaches that could get fired at season's end, he's definitely on it.
Graham, who lined up at tackle in the nickel, dominated off the snap along with Cox and the two of them made the biggest play of the day to seal the win. "We'll give him more reps as the season progresses".
"We don't want to be blitz-happy, especially when we have our front the way they are", Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said. LT Jason Peters (groin) left in the second half. The sad thing is that in the second to last series, they started on the 50-yard-line after an Eagles QB Carson Wentz fumble was recovered by LB Mason Foster. "I don't know what it is". "We got everybody contributing today".
HOLES IN OFFENSIVE LINE: Washington's offensive line struggled against Philadelphia's pass rush as right tackle Morgan Moses played through an ankle injury and left tackle Trent Williams left briefly with one.
Drive summary: The Redskins got on the board on a defensive touchdown. Defensively, the Redskins are yielding 17.8 points and 271.8 total yards, 158.0 in passing and 113.8 in rushing per game. Wentz got the offense out of at least as much trouble, enough times to bring back memories of past Eagles escape artists.
Cavaliers eyeing Tatum or Brown as additional compensation
A Cavs source said the two sides need to reach a conclusion by Wednesday evening or mutually agree to extend the deadline. This means it's possible he may never play a game for the Cavaliers if the injury is worse than initially expected.
