Prior to the season, everybody has been talking about the Eagles defensive line and how they must dominate for the defense to play well an dthis team to win. So far, the Eagles best defensive lineman has been Brandon Graham. He’s had a sack in each game and he’s spending a lot of time in the opposing team’s backfield. The former number one pick has been making plays in the backfield for the Eagles against the run and against the pass.
I thought the Eagles defensive ends were going to have to put pressure on Jay Cutler and that’s what happened. Graham made some big plays off the corner, when he pounded the Bears running backs. He’s not big for a defensive end, but he’s powerful and explosive.
He made four tackles in the game against the Bears with two tackles for a loss and one sack. That’s outstanding play for a defensive end because he seems to all over the place making plays. He’s making plays in the offensive backfield.
