[sc:NFL240banner ]The Philadelphia Eagles preserved their unbeaten record (3-0) in the preseason with an impressive 39-26 win over the Green Bay Packers on Saturday night. Quarterback Sam Bradford was superb in this ballgame, completing all 10 of his passes for 121 yards and three touchdowns. The Eagles have been outstanding on the offensive end this preseason, outscoring their opponents, 115-53, in their first three exhibition games.
The Eagles will look to continue their hot start when they take on the New York Jets in their final preseason game this coming Thursday. The Jets are fresh off a morale-boosting 28-18 victory Saturday over their crosstown rivals the New York Giants. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two touchdown passes and Antonio Cromartie scored on a 59-yard interception return in the dying seconds of the first half to lead the Jets to their second-straight win.
Philadelphia wins, 24-10.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Washington Redskins
Where: FedEx Field, Landover
When: Thursday, September 3, 7:30 PM ET
Line: Jacksonville Jaguars (+4.5) at Washington Redskins (-4.5); total: 40.0 – view all NFL lines
Washington maintained its perfect preseason record with an emphatic 31-13 victory over Baltimore on Saturday. With Griffin sidelined by a concussion, Cousins went 20 for 27 with a touchdown and an interception to lead the Redskins to their third consecutive victory. That performance certainly grabbed Jay Gruden’s attention, as the Redskins coach named Cousins as his starting quarterback this upcoming 2015-16 NFL season.
The Redskins will look to complete the four-game preseason sweep when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars at FedEx Field this coming Thursday. The Jaguars are coming off a disappointing 22-17 defeat to the Detroit Lions on Friday night. Quarterback Blake Bortles was impressive, though, completing 20 of 29 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown.
He also ran for 38 yards, including two third-down scrambles that kept Jacksonville’s scoring drives alive. Bortles has been superb for the Jaguars this preseason, completing 39 of 60 passes for 461 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. Thanks to his excellent play, the Jaguars’ first-team offense has managed eight scoring drives in 11 preseason possessions.
Washington wins, 21-17. Create a betting account now and cash in on all the NFL action.[sc:NFL490Banner ]
