Deep ball helped open things up underneath for Eagles

that throw, and other long passes throughout the game,The Philadelphia Eagles took a shot down the field on their first offensive play of the season. Though the deep shot to Torrey Smith was unsuccessful, helped the Eagles offense open up space underneath against Washington.

but the addition of Smith has eliminated that problem. Smith didn’t put up big numbers in the win against Washington on Sunday,Philadelphia lacked a legitimate deep threat last season, but his presence was impactful.

opposing defenses have to keep in mind his ability to beat them downfield. Defenders can no longer cheat up on Eagles pass catchers,When Smith is lined up on the outside, as they often did last year.

” quarterback Carson Wentz said of the deep ball. “Obviously we missed the first play of the game to Torrey,Authentic Cameron Sutton Jersey, and I just overthrew him on the other one. Nonetheless,“I think it just opens things up,Womens James Conner Jersey, teams see that and it’ll open some things up underneath.

for Ertz,“I think (tZach) Ertz had a big game today. That’s something that just having those elements will continue to open things up for (Darren) Sproles, for Nelson [Agholor] in the slot and some different things. So that’s a big part of our game.”

hauling in all eight passes thrown his way. With more space in the middle of the field,Womens Joshua Dobbs Jersey,Ertz had 93 yards in the victory on Sunday. The tight end was the most efficient pass catcher for the Eagles, it was easier for the athletic Ertz to get separation.

Agholor and Sproles were the second- and third-most productive players in the Eagles passing attack in Washington. The two combined for 129 yards and a touchdown.

The offseason additions of Smith and Alshon Jeffery should help the Eagles offense take the next step this season. The threat of being beaten deep for opposing defenses will continue to help Philadelphia’s offense make plays underneath.

The Texans got their initial QB decision wrong, but can fix it with Deshaun Watson

it means you picked the wrong guy to begin with,Womens Artie Burns Jersey,If you’re willing to bench your starting quarterback one half into your first game, and you know it.

That’s where the Houston Texans are right now.

The Texans entered the season with Tom Savage as their starter,Womens Sean Davis Jersey, seemingly on the premise that he is a reasonably proficient game-manager able to avoid costly mistakes and allow Houston’s defense to do the heavy lifting and churn out workmanlike victories.

after being denied a chance to sign Tony Romo in the offseason when he opted for retirement and the CBS broadcast booth, traded up to select Deshaun Watson 12th overall in the NFL draft. Forget that Watson had his eye-catching moments during training camp and the preseason and brings an improvisational ability to the offense that Savage does not possess. The Texans went with the seemingly safer choice,Never mind that the Texans, giving the starting nod to the more experienced player.

at which point Coach Bill O’Brien sat down Savage and went to Watson. The Texans trailed the Jacksonville Jaguars, 19-0,That lasted one half Sunday, and Savage had been sacked six times while completing seven of 13 passes for 62 yards.

Things improved only slightly for the Texans with Watson on the field. He threw a touchdown pass. But he also threw an interception and was sacked four times in a 12-for-23, 102-yard passing performance. He also ran for 16 yards on two carries in the Texans’ 29-7 loss.

The Texans play again Thursday night at Cincinnati,Womens Cameron Sutton Jersey, and O’Brien was not ready to say Sunday which quarterback will start against the Bengals.

LeGarrette Blount didn't have the stats but influenced Eagles' win over Redskins

many questioned LeGarrette Blount’s ability to run the football as the primary back. It’s fair to hold him to a high standard. He led the NFL in rushing touchdowns last season for the Super Bowl champion Patriots. But for the sake of argument,Throughout the Eagles preseason,Authentic James Conner Jersey, it was only the preseason.

Blount amassed 46 yards on 14 carries — just 3.3 yards per carry. He scored the Eagles’ second touchdown on a one-yard screen pass from Carson Wentz. Blount’s impact was more than what the stats reflect,Authentic Joshua Dobbs Jersey,Blount attempted to silence the critics in the Eagles’ 30-17 victory against the Redskins on Sunday. As the primary running back, though.

which opened up a door for Wentz and the offense to mix in play-action plays. And going into Sunday’s matchup,Blount chipped away at the Redskins defense,Authentic Artie Burns Jersey, Doug Pederson made it a priority in his game plan to get the ball down field as much as possible.

“It’s an opportunity, obviously with the personnel,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey, with Carson and the play-action pass,” Pederson said after Sunday’s game. “Just being able to design shot plays down the field.”
