Eagles anxious to end disturbing streak in crucial season opener

Eagles anxious to end disturbing streak in crucial season opener

But it was their four-man pressure that did most of the damage against a quarterback that was averaging 315 yards passing against them (see 10 observations).

The Eagles finished the 2016 season with a 12-8 record against the spread, mostly on the strength of a 7-0 ATS start. He was one pass shy of 40 attempts.

Worst streak: Washington is 0-5 in season openers since Robert Griffin III "Griffined" while leading the Redskins to a 40-32 upset victory at New Orleans in his National Football League debut.

Washington (0-1, 0-1) had it's five-game win streak against the Eagles (1-0, 1-0) snapped, while also falling to 0-3 under Jay Gruden in season openers. In two games against Washington, he was slightly better (83.8).

Wentz found Nelson Agholor for a 58-yard touchdown after Wentz slipped two would-be sacks before finding an open Agholor deep down the field to get the Eagles on the board first.

Wentz (43 of 68 for 493 yards, one touchdown and one interception in two games against Washington) returns to Landover with several new weapons. Sunday's interception was Kerrigan's first since 2012. The year before, when he scored a career-high 11 TDs, he had his most receptions (25), yards (300) and touchdowns (4) in the first quarter.

Meanwhile, the Yankees are 4-1 in the last five Saturday games and 2-5 in their last seven during game three of a series. If a point guard is suddenly guarding a power forward because of a switch, we all know who's getting the next pass.

Josh Norman leads the Redskins defensive side and will need constant support from Junior Galette, Ryan Anderson, and Preston Smith to serve the team well.

While the Eagles can celebrate now, they will have to look ahead as it looks like Ronald Darby will miss an extended period of time, and Jason Peters did not finish the game after leaving with a groin injury. Washington holds the lone win in the postseason - 20-6 in a 1990 NFC wild card game in Philadelphia. A nice drive that spanned the third and fourth quarters was terminated when Cousins overthrew Crowder inside the five and Jalen Mills picked it off. Okay, the Philadelphia Eagles probably aren't going to go undefeated, but it was a great day for their fans nonetheless. Now, the Skins are talented enough to score some points on offense, but the defense will be the death of them. An undrafted cornerback out of Texas A&M, Everett made this team the last two years with strong special teams play, and he has done a good job of capitalizing on spot duty defensive action the last two years.

Someone who might provide the Eagles some additional insight on the Redskins is quarterback Nate Sudfeld, who was among Washington's final cuts before being signed to the Eagles' practice squad.

"But, they have time to look at it and get it right, and they made the call they made", Cousins said. Unfortunately, the result only added to the concern, as Pryor couldn't locate the ball in the air and it fell incomplete. "I think he's sometimes a risk taker". He probably meant the sun.

Philly coughed up its own fumble on a freakish backwards pass in the first quarter but equalized it when Trey Burton dove on top of a muffed punt return by Washington's Jamison Crowder. It's too early for that sort of thing.

Additionally, Wentz and Eagles teammates Trey Burton and Zach Ertz have also teamed up with Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and other Redskins players to raise money and awareness for International Justice Mission, a Christian charity devoted to protecting the poor and vulnerable.
