Can Travis Fulgham score his fourth touchdown for the Philadelphia Eagles?

It seems like Travis Fulgham gets better with each passing week. After hauling in two catches for 57 yards and a touchdown against the San Francisco 49ers, he’s gone on to become Wentz’s favorite receiving target. In three games since he joined the Eagles active roster, the Old Dominion standout has added 18 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns to his resume.

Giants cornerbacks James Bradberry and Logan Ryan have been solid this year and will present an interesting matchup for Fulgham on Thursday. Nevertheless, the second-year receiver should be able to win this matchup and get his fourth touchdown of the year.

The Eagles have a soft spot for former players. Whether it’s wide receiver Jordan Matthews, left guard Jason Peters, or defensive end Vinny Curry, there’s always a chance former players returning to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Richard Rodgers isn’t any different. After a quiet tenure with ‘the Birds’ from 2018 to 2019, the team parted ways with the veteran tight end this past offseason.

Rodgers signed with the Washington Football Team but got released in September and returned to Philadelphia. With Zach Ertz now on the team’s injured reserve along with Dallas Goedert, expect Rodgers to have a larger role moving forward.
