Eagles Beat: TE Zach Ertz still getting better

When the Eagles went into full-team drills in the red zone, Zach Ertz took over. He first caught a beautifully floated ball from Nick Foles with his left hand as he dove toward the ground. Malcolm Jenkins was so frustrated, he picked up the pylon and tossed it. (There probably would have been a sack on the play in a real game.)

Then, Ertz caught a ball in heavy traffic. No idea how it wasn’t picked or how Ertz kept his focus through the bodies. Then, with the twos, he caught another slant for a touchdown. Somehow, with his arms tied up, Ertz was able to use his fingertips to hold onto this one.

Three touchdowns in one red zone period. Ertz is a Pro Bowler and still getting better.
