When it comes to the pass he didn’t capture? It would have been a 98-yard goal. Injures simply topple him in a play he want to have back.

The Eagles offered Watkins another opportunity later on in the very first quarter with Joe Flacco at the helm, calling his number by means of screen. Watkins once again displayed his speed, and took his one reception 79 backyards to your house for the very first rating of the video game. 

Watkins was prepared by the Eagles in the 6th round of the 2020 NFL Draft out of Southern Miss. He captured simply 7 passes for 106 backyards and one goal in his novice season, however did score a dirty goal versus the Arizona Cardinals in Week 15. 

Watkins needs to have had 2 catches for 2 goals on Thursday night, and truly does seem among the big-play weapons that the Eagles have actually been looking for. CBS Sports’ Jeff Kerr has actually explained Watkins as the one receiver that has actually stepped up for Philly in training school, and it didn’t take wish for him to show that he’s all set for touches. The Eagles have actually fought with their large getting corps over the previous couple of years, however things might be reversing. Watkins is no longer a trick.
