The early results were encouraging with free agent
« -: януари 09, 2020, 04:10:46 am »
When they needed it most Bobby Massie Jersey , the Philadelphia Eagles made all the plays.Carson Wentz threw for 239 yards and one touchdown, Jordan Howard ran for 82 yards and a score and the Eagles held on for a 22-14 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.The Bears had just 9 yards in the first half and trailed 19-0 before David Montgomery had a pair of 1-yard TD runs to make it a one-possession game in the fourth quarter.But Philadelphia put it away with 16-play, 69-yard drive capped by Jake Elliott's 38-yard field goal. Wentz completed all four of his third-down passes on the drive for first downs, and the Eagles held the ball for 8:14."We stayed on the field," Wentz said. "Those third downs were huge for us."Dallas Goedert turned a screen on third-and-9 into a 16-yard gain. Miles Sanders had a 15-yard reception on third-and-12 and Alshon Jeffery bounced back from two big drops to make a 13-yard catch on third-and-3."That was a heck of a drive," Goedert said. "We connected when we needed to. It was well-executed."The Eagles (5-4) have won two in a row after a pair of lopsided losses.The Bears (3-5) have lost four straight.Mitchell Trubisky was 10 of 21 for 125 yards and was sacked three times.The Bears went three-and-out on their first five possessions, gaining minus-10 yards. They didn't get a first down until the final minute of the first half."The score felt a lot worse than it was," Bears coach Matt Nagy said. "We just couldn't get going and it snowballed. One thing after the next."Wentz connected with Zach Ertz over the middle for a 25-yard touchdown pass to give the Eagles a 12-0 lead in the second quarter. Elliott missed the extra point wide right.Howard ran up the middle 13 yards for a TD on the opening drive of the third quarter, extending the lead to 19-0."I saw a big hole and tried to hit it as fast as I could," said Howard, who was nearly untouched.The Bears finally got going when Trubisky connected with Taylor Gabriel on a 53-yard pass to the Eagles 9 and Montgomery ran in from the 1. He leaped in from the 1 early in the fourth quarter.But Chicago couldn't complete the comeback."Losing sucks and you can tell we don't like it," Trubisky said. "On the sideline, you're trying to find solutions to how to spark this offense to get going. It could just be getting back to the simpler things. Go fast and let our guys roll."The Eagles had a first down at the Bears 5 on their opening drive https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Adrian-Amos-Jersey , but settled for a 28-yard field goal by Elliott after Eddie Goldman sacked Wentz.Elliott kicked another 28-yarder on the next drive to make it 6-0.STATSWentz has thrown a TD pass in 12 straight games, tied with Seattle's Russell Wilson for longest active streak. ... Eagles have won 11 of last 15 against Chicago. ... Bears LB Khalil Mack had four tackles, including two for loss, one quarterback hit and one pass knockdown. ... Eagles DT Genard Avery had a half-sack in his debut with his new team.FAMILIAR FACESHoward averaged 4.3 yards per carry in his first game against his former team. Jeffery had four receptions for 36 yards and at least two drops."I did a lot more talking than I usually do," Howard said. "There was a lot more back-and-forth with the guys."HEALTHY SCRATCHEagles cornerback Sidney Jones, a second-round pick in 2017, didn't dress. Jones was projected to be a first-round pick before tearing his Achilles on his pro day. He has failed to live up to expectations in his two-plus seasons.INJURIESBears: Goldman (thigh) left in the second quarter. ... LB Isaiah Irving (quad) was inactive.Eagles: WR DeSean Jackson lasted just one series after returning to the lineup for the first time since suffering an abdomen injury in Week 2. He drew a pass interference on the first play and had a 5-yard catch. Coach Doug Pederson said Jackson was held out for precautionary reasons and will undergo more testing this week. ... LT Jason Peters (knee) and LB Nigel Bradham each missed their third straight game.UP NEXTBears: Host the Lions (3-3-1) next Sunday.Eagles: Host the Patriots (8-0) on Nov. 17 after a bye. The Oakland Raiders spent almost all of training camp and the week leading up to the season opener without star receiver Antonio Brown on the practice field.So while most outsiders figured his release two days before the opener would be as costly as last year's trade of pass rusher Khalil Mack, the Raiders believed they had a much-improved team capable of competing and showed that in a 24-16 victory Monday night over Denver."We tried to tell everybody all offseason, we weren't just blowing smoke," quarterback Derek Carr said. "We had a good football team even when (Brown) wasn't there. We knew if we had him, my goodness, that could be crazy because he's so good as a football player. But he's not here. And when it happened, honestly Jordan Howard Color Rush Jersey , it wasn't the same feeling as when Khalil Mack got traded. I'll just put it as that. It was not the same feeling. It was like OK, at least the question was answered. At least we have answers."For one night at least, the answers looked to be good ones. Carr played with much more confidence, showing needed growth in year two under coach Jon Gruden. The rookie class had a big impact from running back Josh Jacobs to defensive end Clelin Ferrell and safety Johnathan Abram.Perhaps most importantly, free agent receiver Tyrell Williams and tight end Darren Waller showed Oakland still has some capable pass catchers even with Brown in New England.Carr finished 22 for 26 for 259 yards, with an 8-yard TD pass to Williams on the opening drive.WHAT'S WORKINGJacobs was brought in to be the bell-cow back despite carrying the ball 20 times in a game just once in three seasons at Alabama. He thrived under a heavy load in the opener. He ran 23 times for 85 yards and two touchdowns and also caught a 28-yard pass that set up a touchdown. Jacobs became the first player since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001 to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage and run for two TDs in an NFL debut."This man wasn't really the feature back at Alabama. He's not drawing from a lot of experience," Gruden said. "I'm anxious to see how he feels today after 24 touches because we'd like to get him 24 more next week."WHAT NEEDS HELPAfter a strong first half when Denver was limited to 87 yards and no points, Oakland's defense wasn't nearly as effective in the final two quarters. The Broncos scored on four of five second-half drives as the Raiders appeared to wear down. The one positive for Oakland was that three of those scoring drives ended in field goals, thanks to a pair of third-down sacks and a dropped pass in the end zone.STOCK UPLT Kolton Miller. The 2018 first-round pick struggled mightily in his rookie season as he dealt with various injuries and the transition to the NFL. Miller allowed an NFL-worst 14 sacks last year, according to Sports Info Solutions, contributing to the 52 allowed as a team by the Raiders.Miller got tested in the opener going up mostly against Denver's Bradley Chubb, who had 12 sacks as a rookie. But Miller was part of a line that didn't allow Carr to get hit or sacked even once, the first time that has happened since Week 2 in 2017."We see a lot of progress Eddie Jackson Jersey ," Gruden said. "He's stronger, he's more experienced and he's healthy. Those three things added to his improvement."STOCK DOWNRookie CB Trayvon Mullen. Forced into action in the second half after Gareon Conley went down with a neck injury, Mullen was targeted repeatedly by Joe Flacco down the stretch. Mullen took a bad gamble, leading to a 22-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders on Denver's last drive that was capped by Flacco's 1-yard TD throw to Sanders against Mullen."He has to play better," Gruden said. "He had some moments where he struggled."INJUREDThe Raiders got good news on Conley, who was taken off the field on a stretcher after a scary injury in the second half. Conley said on Twitter that the injury wasn't severe and he was "good to go."KEY NUMBERThree. After being limited to an NFL-worst 13 sacks last year after trading Mack before the start of the season, the Raiders knew they needed a more consistent pass rush to be successful this year. The early results were encouraging with free agent acquisition Benson Mayowa recording two sacks and No. 4 overall draft pick Ferrell adding one. The three sacks were the most for the Raiders since they also had three on Dec. 10, 2017, against Kansas City.NEXT STEPSThe degree of difficulty ramps up this week when the Raiders host Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City in a second straight division matchup. The Chiefs have won eight of the past nine games in the series. Oakland has started 2-0 just once since the 2002 AFC title year, winning the first two games in 2017 before stumbling to a 6-10 record.
