They host Cincinnati, which is 2-0, and Baltimore can ill afford to fall three games behind the Bengals in the AFC North. The Ravens’ biggest issues have come on their defense, which is attempting to compensate for the loss of pass-rusher Terrell Suggs to a season-ending torn Achilles’ tendon.
The Jets lead the league with six fumble recoveries and are tied for tops with four interceptions. As for Fitzpatrick it should be a similar mindset for him on Sunday. Coach Dan Quinn says that the edge rusher is ahead of schedule but wasn’t ready to speculate when he’d see game action, waiting to see how Reed performs in practice today and tomorrow. “(It’s) just a matter of how much better he gets”, head coach Todd Bowles said Friday. Not only is the season off to an excellent start for them, but they are facing a disappointing Eagles team that is teetering on an implosion.
Associated Press: Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is frustrated about losses and not his role on offense.
Sure, Bowles turned the Cardinals into one of the NFL’s best defenses during his tenure there, but Ryan has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best defensive minds in the game. Play tight coverage on the outside, don’t let the receivers get separation and control the line of scrimmage.
Yeah, it’s weird to be on the other end of a possible “trap game”. The Jets have to be careful though because this offense could breakout at any moment. “Geno understands that. As we go, Ryan is our starting quarterback, and we’ll go forward from there”.
One of the biggest criticisms of the Eagles defense previous year was the team’s secondary. The Eagles offensive line especially their guards have had a rough season thus far.
We’re going to learn a ton about Chip Kelly this week.
“Jeremy is a [No.] 1, 2, 3 on a bunch of other teams, so I’m excited that we have him”, Marshall said. The Jets received quite a scare when Antonio Cromartie was carted off the field with a knee injury in Week 1. “He picked up, got into a lot of the offense from meetings and stood in there, and he made some good throws”.
When you looked at the rosters before the season, did you think the Eagles would be an 0-3 team. Davis and Harris are the most important though because they will be responsible for keeping the Eagles running backs contained. A group he ensured Eagles ownership he could win with. The result? Through two game this season, Murray has a grand total of 11 yards on the ground, compared to last season in Dallas when he was just under 300 yards after week two. He kicked the game-winning field goal in Super Bowl XXXVIII. He averaged 29.6 yards per return and he recorded a touchdown.
Reid: And did we lose the game because of it? While that injury is healed, his quadriceps could put him on the sideline in favor of Bilal Powell and Zac Stacy. On Wednesday, he took part in team drills for the first time following his surgery. Gardner doesn’t just need a big game.he needs a monumental one when you consider who he’s having to keep away from Bradford for four quarters. Going through a full season and understanding that, OK, doing that really affected me for half the season, so was it worth it?
Dorsey: I stand by my belief that we need to run the ball more.
After losing Murray, the Cowboys were then quickly relegated to going “running back by committee”, with the oft-injured Darren McFadden and fifth-round draft pick Joseph Randle splitting time in the backfield.
