Carson Wentz and offense uneven, but Eagles win wild ride

Carson Wentz and offense uneven, but Eagles win wild ride

The Washington Redskins, coming off back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in almost two decades, have won five straight against the Philadelphia Eagles, but four of the five have been by a touchdown or less. However, in order for the Eagles to be victorious on Sunday, they will need all the help they can get on offense and defense.

Things started out quickly for Eagles second-year quarterback Carson Wentz.

Barring injury in the next three days, the Eagles will begin the season with a totally healthy offensive line. The Eagles haven't won at FedEx Field since the season opener in 2013. He spent most of the off-season in the Eagles practice facility.

In a Slam final? I'd have passed out, says Stephens
Stephens played her usual defensive tennis, forcing her opponent to make the extra shot and testing her patience. Serena Williams is planning to come back on the circuit next year, according to her coach Patrick Mouratogolou .

If you have Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill or Mike Gillislee in fantasy, you're off to a great start heading into the first NFL Sunday of the season. That is because the team acquired wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, running back LeGarrette Blount, and wide receiver Torrey Smith in the offseason. Both receivers have the ability to stretch the field and come up with the big catch in the red zone. Agholor emerged today, and it was good to see.

That followed a year in which Cousins led the Redskins to an NFC East Division title after recording 4,166 yards, 29 touchdowns, 11 picks, a league-best completion percentage of 69.8 percent and a passer rating of 101.6. Opening as 6-point favorites, the Bills are now favored as high as they've ever been in Nevada for a long time.

With the Redskins on the doorstep, the Eagles made a huge stand, and Jalen Mills got his first career interception when he intercepted a Kirk Cousins pass on the goalline after Cousins panicked with the Eagles sending a heavy blitz.

The closest land mass Jose will approach is the northern Leeward Islands, the same ones Irma just devastated. At this point, based on the current track of Hurricane Irma , our weekend should be dry, sunny and cool.

It doesn't matter who's running the ball for the Eagles. LaGarrette Blount is coming off a monster year with the New England Patriots where scored 18 touchdowns. "But you can't make it bigger than it is". Not only did the Redskins lose their offensive coordinator when Sean McVay took the head coaching job of the Los Angeles Rams, they also let all their wide receivers go with the exception of the underrated Jamison Crowder. Barnett was lined up on the right side against perennial All-Pro Trent Williams.

"I'm just trying to maintain so I can be ready for Sunday", said a soft-spoken Doctson, who avoided reporters for weeks when he was injured and only relented Wednesday for a brief interview. "If it's Wendell, it's Wendell". Have thoughts on how the Eagles and Washington are performing?

"Kirk Cousins" audition for a massive long-term contract did not wow anybody. The Eagles top cornerback Ronald Darby suffered an ankle injury after he landed on it awkwardly backing up a play. Literally an identical offer as the team made him in May. Like Galette and Doctson, these two have a chance to be real difference makers for their respective units. The Birds will have a lot depth along the defensive line with guys like defensive tacklesTim Jernigan and Fletcher Cox.
