WHEN THE TAILGATE DROPS, THE BULL SHIRT STOPS!

The Philadelphia Eagles are the healthiest they've been with now both Carson Wentz.

Getting the timing and chemistry back might take a little bit more work.The Eagles blew a 14-point lead midway through the third quarter and still had chances at the end of regulation and in overtime Cheap Delanie Walker Jersey , needing a touchdown to win but settling for a pair of field goals that weren't enough Sunday in a 26-23 loss to the Tennessee Titans ."It's frustrating, obviously, to come up short, especially as an offense when you have chances," Wentz said."We had chances to finish in the end zone at the end of the game, finish in the end zone in overtime. And we just didn't execute in the red zone the way we wanted to, and you can look at all sorts of plays from the game. At the end of the day, we just didn't finish as an offense and as a team either."Philadelphia (2-2) outgained Tennessee 432-397. Wentz threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns, and Jeffery finished with eight catches for 105 yards and a TD in his season debut . Zach Ertz led the Eagles with 10 catches for 112 yards.The Eagles led 10-3 at halftime, 17-3 midway through the third quarter and even 23-20 in overtime. They simply couldn't find the play to pull out their third straight win.Coach Doug Pederson said he thinks the effort is there."The mistakes we're making are all fixable, whether it's a coverage element being out of position or just a holding along the perimeter offensively we can't do," Pederson said. "It's things we can correct in practice during the week, and that's what we have to do."Pederson said the Eagles stopped themselves on the two late drives. The Eagles also gave up four sacks, the last with Wentz stripped of the ball setting up a Tennessee field goal early in the fourth quarter. That was the lone fumble of three Philadelphia lost.The Eagles also were flagged eight times for 77 yards."Whether it was just execution, maybe a penalty backed us up just a touch, a sack Wesley Woodyard Jersey , something negative happened," Pederson said. "It just got us out of our rhythm. It's seems like we got down there fine, and Tennessee bowed their neck and kept us to three, much like our defense has done for the first month of the season."The Eagles also had some dropped passes, particularly Nelson Agholor, who caught only five of the 12 balls Wentz threw at him with four drops."That's not something you want to do," Agholor said. "You take the frustration outside of it, you know, that's your job. You just get a little upset because you prepare for it, but you have to work harder and you have to bounce back."The Eagles couldn't convert on a pair of third downs late.Wentz threw the ball away on third-and-3 just before Jake Elliott kicked a 30-yard field goal with 16 seconds left in regulation. Wentz said the Titans had them covered, along with some miscommunication. Ertz couldn't pull in Wentz's pass on third-and-12 at the Titans 19 in overtime before the Eagles settled for Elliott's third and final field goal.Ertz said the Eagles cannot simply rely on what worked last season.15"We can't say that we're just going to flip a switch, and we're just going to start going on a roll and win nine in a row," Ertz said. "We're playing really good football teams, and we've just got to find a way to win. The thing that sticks out about this team is typically we find a way to win. Today we just dropped the ball. They beat us and my hat's off to them."Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalker There are 31 NFL teams that are kicking themselves for passing on Harold Landry III in the 2018 NFL Draft.The Cleveland Browns passed him four times. The Indianapolis Colts passed on Landry three times. The New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens had more than one chance to acquire Landry Cheap Malcolm Butler Jersey , but also skipped and filled other needs.Titans GM Jon Robinson lunged at the opportunity to make a trade for Landry and seconds before the pick was announced, the video of the war room showing Robinson high-fiving HC Mike Vrabel emerged.Robinson had to have known he had negotiated a draft steal that would not only fill an area of need - but found a player he believed could have an immediate impact. Landry has done just that.Kearse Reincarnated In the 1999 NFL Draft, Jevon Kearse was the fourth defensive player taken in the first round behind CB Champ Bailey, CB Chris McAlister and DT Anthony “Booger” McFarland.Kearse, a Florida Gator alum, was considered by some to be a top 10 pick. Instead, the Titans snatched him six picks outside of the top 10. Kearse - who eventually became the Defensive Rookie of the Year - was a player 15 teams regretted not drafting.The magical season that was ‘99 was special for many reason. One big reason included the Freak. Kearse was a dominant force on defense - but most of his dominance came during the second half of his rookie season.Through the first eight games, Kearse had four sacks. His disruption couldn’t be measured through the box score. There were things he did defensively that simply made huge impacts and shifted momentum week to week.Sound familiar?Landry has one sack through three games, but the havoc he has created cannot and should not go unnoticed. MCM Mike Herndon, Titans Film Room and Superhorn all have posted excellent film clips showing just exactly what kind of damage is left behind a Landry rush.Hard not to wonder if Landry had been active for the disastrous Miami game, this team may be undefeated.Landry’s RiseLandry has put several teams on notice through the first quarter of the season - and the scary thing is, his play will only continue to improve. As mentioned above, Kearse had four sacks through the first eight games - three sacks coming in one game against Cleveland. Could Landry do the same as he faces the Buffalo Bills - who have allowed the most sacks in the league?Very possible. The second half of Kearse’s rookie season, he stacked up 10.5 sacks and finished the regular season with 14.5. Landry has all the physical tools and is surrounded by a strong supporting cast, which makes it possible for him to explode onto the scene and legitimately contend for the Defensive Rookie of the Year crown.Landry will continue to find comfort in his role and DC Dean Pees will continue to shuffle versatile backer along the defensive front hoping to get an impact.Landry will be honored by season end.
