The Philadelphia Eagles suffered their first loss of the season last week in Detroit, 24-23, as the Lions drove to a 29-yard game winning field goal with just 1:28 remaining.
Wentz is at his best under pressure.
“A very humble and just giving back to those who aren’t making as much money or fortunate as he is with his good given talent”, said Eagles Season ticket holder Jesse Vitagliano. The Redskins are now last in red zone scoring percentage, converting just 35 percent of their attempts this season. And they watch film together. According to Frank, Jenkins is the first Eagle to ever tally a pick-six in three consecutive seasons. Considering how Washington defends the run, I have my sneaking suspicions that Ryan Mathews, Darren Sproles, and the rest of the Eagles running backs get a ton of work.
Norman is about to learn the difference between Wentz and Cody Kessler. Weekly, the talk always surrounds Carson Wentz and what the Eagles offense can do to lead the team to victory. And besides, we are still talking about a team that has sacked the QB 14 times in 4 games. We give him his respect. “We just go out and play football”.
“Obviously being a guy in this league that’s had a lot of success, you obviously want as many touches as possible”, said Jackson. Unless he gets the franchise tag, which is unlikely considering the stable of receivers Gruden has, he’ll be a free agent.
The Redskins then controlled the football and the clock well into the fourth quarter. It wasn’t a compliment.
More evidence: Wentz’s mind-boggling grace under fire.
The others are quarterback Carson Wentz and right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who will make his first start. In order to pull off the divisional road win, they better keep that number in single digits. “All guys can rush the passer”. In fact, he made an absolutely gorgeous throw to Jordan Matthews on a big third-down play. They have a point differential of 64.
Off-field issues encountered by wide receiver Nelson Agholor and linebacker Nigel Bradham? His response: “That’s a little bit out of my league”. Seven players have at least one sack. “But sometimes he’ll move into the slot on man coverage”. He’s another one of those kids that’s gone against our defensive front, practiced against them every day. Some teams will go corners-over and it will all be man coverage. Both teams are looking to maintain pace in a what is now a strong division. “He can show up in a few places”.
This will be Carson Wentz’s most hard challenges in terms of throwing against a talented secondary. He’s mostly played within a relatively conservative passing attack, but he’s proven that when necessary, he can put spectacular deep throws on a dime. I think when you’re a quarterback, that’s the most important stat.
We won’t know until Sunday if Norman’s propensity to make matchups personal impacts Wentz.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was spending time at his college (North Dakota State) at a bar named Herd and Horns Bar during his team’s bye week.
Jackson has a baby boy that he says has “matured him”.
