Eagles’ A.J. Brown lands high on a PFF list of NFL’s best wide receivers against press coverage

Philadelphia Eagles’ star A.J. Brown lands high on a PFF list of the NFL’s best wide receivers against press coverage

The NFL is a timing-based league and the most successful quarterbacks around the league thrive because they have pass catchers that can beat press coverage.

DeVonta Smith was a top-10 pick because of his ability to flourish in tight spots and Eagles GM Howie Roseman just acquired one of the best in the business, which should allow Jalen Hurts to take the next steps as a passer.

PFF recently listed the highest graded wide receivers in the NFL against tight press coverage, and Brown landed at No. 4 on the list behind Justin Jefferson, Davante Adams, and Cooper Kupp.

In a stat that’ll make Eagles fans even more upset, Jefferson has the highest PFF grade since entering the league, catching 72 of the 109 targets thrown his way against press coverage despite teams including Philadelphia passing him up due to concerns about his ability as an outside receiver.

Brown for his part has snagged 46 of the 75 targets thrown his way in press coverage over the past two seasons.

Brown also has 7 touchdowns in 264 snaps against press coverage over the past two seasons and he’s third in the NFL in target rate against press coverage over that time as well.

The addition of the former Titans star will trickle down to DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Dallas Goedert across the middle.

If you ever want to truly gauge the depth on an NFL roster, just take 20 key players away and make them inactive or place them on the COVID-list.

With the bulk of their roster inactive, Philadelphia played reserves and practice squad players in a 51-26 home loss to the Cowboys to wrap up the 2021 regular season.

The Week 18 PFF grades gave an actual indication of what a roster full of backups would resemble, and the results weren’t pretty.

The Eagles clinched a playoff berth on Sunday with a gutty 20-16 comeback win over the Washington Football Team at Lincoln Financial Field.

There were several impressive performances on the day, none more dominant than Josh Sweat, as the veteran defensive end harassed Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke all afternoon.

Sweat wasn’t the only standout on Sunday, and PFF has the best and worst grades from an impressive and historic win for head coach, Nick Sirianni.

The Eagles dominated the Giants on Sunday, and in doing so, the defense was able to dominate when it came to PFF grades as well.

Playing one of the most efficient games of the season, Jonathan Gannon’s defense has players making a huge impact at all three levels of personnel.

Here are your highest-graded players for Philadelphia on both sides of the ball.

The Eagles have returned from the bye week and as the team starts preparation for the first of two contests against Washington over the next three weeks, nows is a good time to look back on the previous 14 weeks.

PFF has weekly grades for all 32 NFL teams and we’re taking a look at the 10 highest graded Eagles entering Week 15.

Philadelphia Eagles have 2 players make PFF’s 2021 Third-Quarter All-Pro Team

We’re almost at the end of the 2021 NFL regular season and with the Eagles on their bye week, Pro Football Focus recently unveiled its third-quarter all-pro team.

Even with Philadelphia currently at 6-7 on the season, the Birds still had two players make the list, with Jason Kelce making the second team and Darius Slay logging first-team honors.

Second Team: Jason Kelce, Philadelphia Eagles
Jason Kelce keeps playing at an extremely high level, flashing absurd athleticism for the position that allows him to make some blocks in the run game other centers couldn’t dream of. He has allowed 15 pressures in 13 games.

FLEX-D DARIUS SLAY, PHILADELPHIA EAGLES
Big Play Slay lived up to his nickname over the past month of play, getting in the end zone on both an interception and a fumble return for the Eagles. Slay has allowed just a 71.2 passer rating and is a threat to score any time he gets his hands on the ball.

Chiefs rookie center Creed Humphrey was the first team center, and Tom Brady was the first-team quarterback.

Eagles’ PFF grades: Best and worst from Week 12 loss to the Giants

The Eagles lost a disastrous 13-7 matchup to the Giants on the road in a game that they were favored in.

The loss has some questioning the quarterback and asking the owner to re-evaluate the general manager in the wake of Jalen Reagor’s inability to break out in his second year, while compared to Vikings star Justin Jefferson.

The proof of Philadelphia’s demise can be found in the Pro Football Focus grades.
