Eagles vs Bills Recap by Daniel Farr
Good news for Eagles fans, the newly acquired players looked very sharp. Fresh off a trade, former Bill, Ronald Darby wasted no time to show the league who won the Eagles-Bills trade. Darby intercepted quarterback Tyrod Taylor, and ran 48-yards before being tackled. Philadelphia's starting defense looked very good, they recorded two interceptions and their defensive line applied the pressure. Recently, former Eagle Jordan Matthews, was diagnosed with a cracked sternum and is considered week to week. Looks like the Eagles and their general manger, Howie Roseman, new exactly what they were doing. This Eagles team desperately needed a starting cornerback, and they got a good one in Darby. The biggest offseason acquisition was wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey, in limited work, the dominant Jeffery had two catches for 23-yards. The longest of the two catches was a 14-yard completion, thrown by quarterback Carson Wentz. Although Wentz missed a throw to Jeffery in the end zone, Wentz looked poised and went a cool six for nine with 56 yards. Running back LeGarrette Blount, also a new Eagle, rushed the ball five times for eight yards, Blount also had two catches for 15-yards. Unfortunately Blount fumbled, something Eagles' fans do not want to see, especially after the team released fumbling expert Ryan Mathews. Philadelphia appears to a have very solid all around team and Eagles' fans have something to be excited about, they should expect their team to compete in every single game this year. Philadelphia plays Miami in their third preseason game next Thursday.
