Despite the Eagles coming out on the losing side of their preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers, there were some positives to take away from the contest.
Here are a few Eagles that produced positives outings Thursday night.
TE Dallas Goedert
The rookie tight end looked sharp in his first game in an Eagles uniform, catching four passes for 66 yards and a touchdown.
The only blemish on Goedert’s night was an early drop on a crossing route, but he quickly shook it off by catching the team’s first touchdown.
LB Kamu Grugier-Hill
The third-year linebacker was seemingly all over the field Thursday night with a team-leading six tackles.
WR Shelton Gibson
The second-year wide receiver had to fight for playing time last season, but made a big splash Thursday night with a 63-yard catch-and-score from Nate Sudfeld during the second quarter.
RB Corey Clement
Clement will more than likely assume a bigger role in the offense this season, and he looked up to the task Thursday with 30 yards on five carries.
DT Fletcher Cox
The perennial Pro Bowl standout looked to be primed for another dominant season Thursday night, as he recorded a sack on the game’s opening possession.
LB LaRoy Reynolds
The veteran linebacker got the most out of his playing time by collecting four tackles, including a sack.
P Cameron Johnston
The Australian landed three of his six punts inside the 20-yard line. His longest was unofficially 81 yards, but it was cut down due to a penalty.
