While it didn’t lead to a check in the win column Authentic Alshon Jeffery Jersey , Alshon Jeffery’s return provided a much needed boost on the outside for the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles. He hauled in 8 catches for 105 yards and a red zone touchdown while posting a 78% success rate and 89% catch rate when targeted. If you were worried about chemistry issues, fear not, Jeffery and Carson Wentz were on the same page all day.Jeffery showcased all of the ways in which he wins at all three levels on Sunday. Starting with his release, he stacked Tennessee Titans’ cornerback Adoree Jackson by winning against press coverage. He did this by using a strong inside arm to keep Jackson at bay.The advantage of having a big target like Jeffery is that not only does he regularly win these battles with physicality, but Wentz trusts him to come down with contested catches. All he needs to see is one step and Wentz puts a beautiful throw in the bucket for a 31-yard catch and conversion on 3rd & 4.There are two types of separation: windows created throughout the route stem and windows created at the catch-point. Jeffery created both on Sunday, this time winning a battle with Titans’ cornerback Malcolm Butler for a 13-yard catch on 3rd & 6. Jeffery misplaces his club, hitting Butler on the shoulder instead of the elbow, but watch what he does with his inside hand to create a window for Wentz’s ball.Play strength has also been a plus for the 6’3”, 218-pound Jeffery and it gives him the ability to create wins in tight spaces. Combined with his understanding of timing and leverage http://www.philadelphiaeaglest.....ski-jersey , and maybe a little crafty exploitation of the rules, these tight window throws land at a higher rate than they would with other receivers with less size and/or nuance.Staying with what his size allows him to do, sometimes he’s just playing basketball out there. He did so on his 16-yard touchdown on 3rd & Goal. It’s not just his size that wins this route; Jeffery runs a clean route that allows him to sink in-and-out of his break efficiently to provide him with excellent positioning for the box out. On a day where the Eagles struggled in the red zone, converting only 1 of 4 trips into touchdowns, Jeffery still shined.He was also a much needed chain mover, coming down with three of the Eagles’ five third down conversions and totaling six first downs on the day.Having Jeffery back is a boon for an offense that has lacked consistent and dynamic production from it’s outside receivers. He looks a tick faster off the line than last year when he was dealing with a torn rotator cuff and is on the same page with Wentz. Plus, he did all of it while dealing with the remnants of a flu that kept him off the field at times. Those factors point to big-time production moving forward. The Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. It really sucked.
Let’s take a look at what the loss means for their standings in both the NFC playoff picture and the 2019 NFL Draft order.NFC PLAYOFF PICTUREPLAYOFF TEAMS1 - Los Angeles Rams: 9-1 overall, 6-1 conference2 - New Orleans Saints: 8-1 overall, 5-1 conference3 - Chicago Bears: 6-3 overall Authentic Nate Gerry Jersey , 4-1 conference4 - Washington Redskins: 6-3 overall, 6-2 conference5 - Carolina Panthers: 6-3 overall, 4-2 conference6 - Minnesota Vikings: 5-3-1 overall, 4-2-1 conferenceIN THE HUNT7 - Green Bay Packers: 4-4-1 overall, 2-3-1 conference8 - Atlanta Falcons: 4-5 overall, 4-2 conference9 - Seattle Seahawks: 4-5 overall, 3-3 conference10 - Dallas Cowboys: 4-5 overall, 3-3 conference11 - Philadelphia Eagles: 4-5 overall, 2-4 conference12 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 3-6 overall http://www.philadelphiaeaglest.....son-jersey , 2-4 conference13 - Detroit Lions: 3-6 overall, 2-4 conferenceDEAD14 - Arizona Cardinals: 2-7 overall, 2-5 conference15 - San Francisco 49ers: 2-7 overall, 1-5 conference16 - New York Giants: 1-7 overall, 0-6 conferenceANALYSISHad the Eagles won on Sunday night, they’d have been second in the NFC East and seventh overall in the NFC standings. But they did not win. And now they’re third in the NFC East and 11th in the conference. They’re certainly not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs just yet. But there’s no denying that their season is on life support. It’s just hard to envision this team suddenly going on a run given the way they’ve played all season.2019 NFL DRAFT ORDERIf you’ve given up hope on the Eagles making the playoffs, perhaps you’re interested in looking ahead to the 2019 NFL Draft. If that’s the case, here’s a look at the current first round order via Tankathon.1 - Oakland Raiders: 1-82 - New York Giants: 1-73 - San Francisco 49ers: 2-74 - Arizona Cardinals: 2-75 - New York Jets: 3-76 - Buffalo Bills: 3-77 - Detroit Lions: 3-68 - Denver Broncos: 3-69 - Jacksonville Jaguars: 3-610 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 3-611 - Cleveland Browns: 3-6-112 - Indianapolis Colts: 4-513 - Dallas Cowboys: 4-514 - Seattle Seahawks: 4-515 - Atlanta Falcons: 4-516 - Philadelphia Eagles: 4-517 - Baltimore Ravens: 4-518 - Miami Dolphins: 5-519 - Green Bay Packers: 4-4-120 - Tennessee Titans: 5-4The 2019 NFL Draft will be important for the Eagles to try to rebuild a roster that clearly is in need of upgrades.
