Wentz, Eagles look to be more than mere sharp-dressed men

Jay Ajayi

Excluding the one-play drive that followed an interception, the Dolphins scored twice on four possessions Cutler led. If he could cross the goal line a few more times, he has a chance to top that position this season.

Thursday night's 38-31 preseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles was a step in the right direction.

Cutler finished the contest 5-of-8 for 105 yards and one touchdown, also launching a downfield shot that resulted in defensive pass interference. Cutler's 72-yard pass to DeVante Parker was a thing of beauty, so hopefully what we saw from the line in this game was the exception this season, not the rule.

Then, when Ryan Tannehill injured his knee during the Dolphins' training camp, Cutler signed a one-year deal with the team.

It wasn't a flawless night for Cutler.

The Eagles could have the best defense in the NFC East this season, and bolstered their secondary with the trade for Ronald Darby. Usually if Wentz is sacked, there has to be a second guy.

Some of the items he's prepared to send are personal protective equipment, chainsaws and three of four rescue ice boats, he said. Gonzalez actively used Twitter overnight to field assistance for those trapped inside water-soaked homes, attics and vehicles.

In fact, in each of the seven years prior to last season, the Eagles have needed to get at least two starts out of their backup quarterback every season, and often more.

In addition to Cutler, Miami is expected to have most of the starters on the field during the first half. "We've got to be ready for everything and anything and just a lot of quick pressure on Carson". As long as he's healthy, Ajayi should be the focal point of the Miami offense. It's starting to look like it's coming soon because of Wentz and the Eagles offense put on a show in this game. He's shown that he can make plays and can bring something to the defense.

If you assume the team splits its six divisional games, that leaves road contests against the Chiefs, Chargers, Panthers, Seahawks and Rams. Clement continues to make a case for a spot in Philadelphia's crowded backfield by scoring his second touchdown in a row against the Dolphins. Alshon Jeffrey also had a touchdown among his two catches and 35 yards.

Earlier, the 50-yard touchdown pass to Torrey Smith would not have happened if Wentz hadn't been able to ignore right tackle Lane Johnson being pushed back into Wentz's lap by Cameron Wake. Miami's secondary needs to cover better in man and zone. "Just whenever you're done and you see what you want to see, just pull me out of the game". The Eagles finish the preseason against the Jets on Thursday, and final cuts are due three days later. He still has the inside track to become Miami's only Week 1 starter from this year's draft class.

Ajayi ran the ball a total of nine times and picked up 53 yards and a pair of short touchdowns.

The Eagles, a franchise that hasn't won a title in almost 60 years - and say-it-with-me, has never won a Super Bowl - had almost 70,000 fans pay to see a glorified practice against the Bills last week, with another sellout expected tonight. Thursday marked the first time the Eagles had all five starting offensive linemen this preseason. Pouncey played four offensive series and was pulled at the 1:14 mark of the first quarter. But there was a report he bobbled a play in the end zone, which had been his undoing for a lot of last season.
