This was not a game the Eagles were expected to win, in the raucous lair of a top Super Bowl contender, but it was a game they could have won, all even at 13 as the minutes ticked down toward the midpoint of the fourth quarter. But snapping a five-game losing streak against the Redskins in Week 1 should feel pretty good for a team that many picked to finish last in the NFC East this season. Kareem Hunt, on the other hand, didn't disappoint anyone, running for 148 yards and a touchdown and catching five touchdowns for 98 yards and two scores in his National Football League debut. Blount rushed 14 times for 46 yards, catching one pass for a touchdown. Kansas City should also garner an edge from the extra rest and preparation time provided by a 10-day layoff.
Even Pederson seemed to recognize the issues now plaguing the Eagles' offense. But Carson Wentz hit Nelson Agholor for a TD with 14 seconds left, and Trey Burton recovered an onside kick a few seconds later to give the Eagles (1-1) one last throw to the end zone.
The Eagles' defense set the tone early, dominating the Chiefs' offensive line in the first half. Wentz had used up all his lucky thunkings.
Kirk Cousins, Chris Thompson lead Redskins to 27-20 win vs Rams LOS ANGELES - Kirk Cousins threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant with 1:49 to play to give the Redskins the victory against their former assistant coach, Rams and rookie head coach Sean McVay. No threat of a running game often leads to bad things. The Cincinnati Bengals just fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after their first two putrid games, and we suppose Payton could do the same with Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen. "No ifs, ands or buts".
"We didn't get a lot over our head", Reid said.
Following next week's game against the desperate Saints, the Panthers face two tough road games - at New England, at Detroit - and a short-week game against the Eagles, who have the makings of a dominant defensive front.
Wentz would have been better served eating the ball there.
While the Chiefs found their groove on the ground late in the game, the Eagles struggled to find a rhythm.
First-round running back LeSean McCoy for the Bills on Sunday: 12 carries for 9 yards for the whole game.
DT Fletcher Cox has five sacks and forced fumble in past five games vs. AFC. Keep in mind they're missing the two best cornerbacks on the roster, Ronald Darby and Sidney Jones, and they're asking young guys to play very important roles. "No doubt about it", Seumalo said. "The guys made plays when they had their opportunities". They'll be looking to bounce back against the Chiefs. Love Isaac to death.
"The good thing about it is always you can get better", he said. "Rally around him, get it taken care of". "This is a great atmosphere to play in".
He was a steadying presence for the team's offense in 2016, finishing with 3,502 yards, 15 touchdowns and eight interceptions while completing 67.1 percent of his passes. Both teams were sent to their locker rooms to wait out the delay. I mean, we all are thinking it, but it is something to hear Smith himself say it. A lot of that has to do with the play of Kareem Hunt at running back.
Where are we now with Blount, who sat on the free-agency shelf until May?
"It's tough, especially for Coach Pederson", Eagles tight end Zach Ertz said, "knowing how much he wanted to come in here and win this one".
"You gotta ask Doug. And that's what he does, and those are the things that he instilled in me watching him was if you want things done right, then you have to spend the time and put in that extra time to be that disciplined".
