The Eagles will have a solid test to begin the new campaign. Jalen Hurts has a statement to make that he is, in fact, an elite dual-threat quarterback in the league. Behind an impenetrable offensive line and a plethora of weapons and a strong defense, this is a pivotal time for the 24-year-old to prove himself.
With plenty of exposure in HBO’s Hard Knocks this preseason, the Lions are definitely a team that many football pundits believe can do some serious damage — if they start off on a winning note, that is. Aidan Hutchinson makes his official pro debut, as the No. 2 overall pick hopes to make a run at the Defensive of the Year award.
