Jay Ajayi shines when given his opportunity.
Typically, you shouldn’t write these stories in first person, but bear with us.
Before the season began, I wasn’t too fond of running back Jay Ajayi. I knew that he was a guy who would move the chains, but I didn’t expect him to be someone who would run for that many yards and rack up scores.
Well, it may be Week 1, but Ajayi made me eat my words tonight, which I am okay with.
Ajayi was a bright spot in a struggling running game. He finished with 15 caries for 62 yards, two touchdowns, and a two-point conversion. To be honest, the Eagles wouldn’t have won, had it not been for Ajayi’s performance.
While I still believe Corey Clement will be the guy the Eagles rely on, Ajayi could be a go-to guy as well.
