The Eagles have their hands full with the Jaguars’ offense.
The south’s most famous county, Duval, has a lot to cheer about. If Trevor Lawrence lives up to his potential and/or hype, this is a team that can win the AFC South and continue to do so for years to come. That isn’t an exaggeration.
Christian Kirk, wide receiver
Everyone had their opinions of Christian Kirk‘s massive four-year, $72 million payday. Most thought he was a tad overpaid, but if he continues to ball out as he’s done so far in 2022 (18 receptions, 267 receiving yards, and three touchdowns in as many weeks), those discussions will die down quickly.
James Robinson, running back
Once the Jaguars drafted Trevor Lawrence, they made an executive decision. They also drafted his college teammate, running back Travis Etienne. The latter missed his entire season due to injury, and once he returned, though he’s been fairly productive, he’s been staring up at James Robinson on the depth chart.
So far, in 2022, Robinson has added 230 yards rushing, a 4.5 yards-per-carry average, three touchdowns, and a receiving TD to his resume, and he’s shown no signs of slowing down.
Evan Engram, tight end
Here’s a familiar face and a former rival. Evan Engram spent his first five seasons with the New York Giants.
In 2021, tight ends did whatever they wanted versus Jonathan Gannon’s defense. Philadelphia has done a better job of covering them in 2022. That’s a trend we’d like to see continue.
Cam Robinson, left tackle
The Eagles’ pass rush came alive in Week 3, sacking Carson Wentz nine times. Can they keep the momentum going at home versus Jacksonville? Cam Robinson, their left tackle is the man assigned the duty of protecting Lawrence’s blind side.
Zay Jones, wide receiver
Christian Kirk is a tremendous talent at wide receiver, and the man on the other side of the formation, Zay Jones has the potential to be great too. Darius Slay and James Bradberry will have their hands full all day.
