Clutch Defense Leads Eagles To Week 1 Win

Redskins Buccaneers Football

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson game-planned for the Washington Redskins a year ago with one arm tied behind his back. Wentz and the Eagles went 8 of 13 on third down and they kept getting into field goal range for Caleb Sturgis, who connected from 50, 42 and 37 yards.

"Really it's just the simplicity of it. Things that we work on, the calls are simple".

It's only his first year with the Eagles, but that doesn't matter. Keeping the other team honest on handoffs and running plays will be important in deciding the victor in this one. "Just try to keep it simple, keep it small, focus on the details". Cousins is once again betting on himself, but he's doing it with fewer offensive weapons and an new offensive coordinator, Matt Cavanaugh.

In the backfield, LeGarrette Blount had a career-high 299 carries last season with New England and led the National Football League with 18 rushing touchdowns. But Norman is used to holding in check bigger opponents, and last season he allowed completions on just 45 of 84 targets (53.6 percent). Carson Wentz said the tempo offense increases the sense of urgency for the players.

Philadelphia also added wideout Torrey Smith, who had 20 receptions with the 49ers. Among them: natural size, great hands and top-notch ball tracking abilities.

Week one gives the Eagles a chance to revisit their divisional rival the Washington Redskins.

Trump administration presses Kuwait on Qatar, North Korean workers
The U.S. president said he appreciated Kuwait's role as a mediator "very much", but said he, too, would be "willing to be the mediator".

"Kirk Cousins" audition for a massive long-term contract did not wow anybody.

Lacking the talents of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon, the Redskins can still get a win, but they cannot play conservatively. Sudfeld spent all of last season with the Redskins organization and all through this years caps and preseason. The defense will feature seven new starters, so it'll be interesting to see how quickly this thing comes together.

Carson Wentz's first completion of 2017 went for a 58 yard touchdown to Nelson Agholor. Cousins' 102.9 passer rating is best of any active QB vs. Philadelphia. "I've always respected Coach (Jim) Schwartz and their defense and the way they come after you". While based in Boston, the Redskins lost just one game in five match ups against Philadelphia, 7-6, on November 3, 1935.

At some point in this storied NFC East rivalry, the Philadelphia Eagles will end their losing streak, which is up to five games, against the Washington Redskins.

NOTES: Eagles DE Derek Barnett and WR Mack Hollins were the only active 2017 draft choices. Head coach Jay Gruden also sang Doctson's praises, calling him a "very natural route runner" and applauding his mental approach to the position. "When they bring in Sproles and Smallwood and all those guys, we have to somehow figure out how to get them third-and-long, try to make them one-dimensional". Cravens, 22, was placed on the exempt/left squad list Sunday after initially shocking the organization by saying he wanted to retire.
