Football returned Wednesday night as the Dallas Cowboys went into MetLife Stadium and handed the defending Super Bowl champion Giants a 24-17 loss.
Some quick takeaways from that game, with an Eagles slant.
When the Eagles travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in Week 1, King Dunlap is expected to start at left tackle.
Andy Reid said today that Dunlap has earned the nod over Demetress Bell and likely will sit with the rest of the starters Thursday night in the preseason finale against the Jets.
Less than three months later, he’s in the driver’s seat to be the Eagles’ starting left tackle.
With the opener just about two weeks away, the offensive line has question marks.
Each morning during training camp, we’ll be bringing you the Eagles Wake-up Call with links and notes from Lehigh. Today, we cover the Birds’ competition at right tackle between Demetress Bell and King Dunlap, expectations for DeSean Jackson and everything you might have missed over the weekend.
Michael Vick let go of the football, but before it arrived, Hughes made contact with Johnson, broke up the pass and landed on the 5-foot-8 wide receiver.
Johnson grimaced and was slow to get up. You could almost see him consider staying down for a moment, but instead, he fought through the initial pain and jogged towards the sideline.
