Jordan Howard scored three touchdowns – two rushing

  •  [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davon-House-Jersey]https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davon-House-Jersey[/url] , one receiving – and Nigel Bradham intercepted Aaron Rodgers on a deflected pass in the end zone inside the final minute as the Philadelphia Eagles held on for a 34-27 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.Howard’s third score, a 2-yard run with 14:13 remaining, served as the winning score the Eagles as a banged up Philadelphia defense came up big when needed. The Eagles were down to just two healthy cornerbacks by the end of the night as Sidney Jones left with a hamstring injury and Avonte Maddox had to leave the field on a stretcher after taking a scary shot to the head from teammate Andrew Sendejo in the closing moments.The Packers had two drives to get the tying score from inside the Eagles 5-yard line and came up empty both times.A defensive pass interference call against Maddox gave the Packers a first-and-goal at the Eagles’ 1-yard line with nine minutes left to play. However, Davante Adams was sidelined due to a toe injury and his absence was critical. The Packers attempted four straight passes from the Eagles’ door step and were unsuccessful on all four to give possession back to Philadelphia and remain a touchdown behind on the scoreboard.The Eagles managed to move the ball 50 yards out of danger with the assistance of a facemask penalty against Dean Lowry before giving the ball back to Green Bay with 5:02 left to play. A pass interference call on Johnathan Cyprien gave the Packers a final red zone opportunity inside the final two minutes. After an Aaron Jones run moved the Packers to the Philadelphia 3-yard line, Rodgers throw to Marquez Valdes-Scantling was deflected into the air and picked off by Bradham to seal the win for the Eagles.The Packers out-gained the Eagles by a 491-336 margin, but Philadelphia made the most of their opportunities.Howard finished with 87 yards rushing and 28 yards receiving in racking up his three scores for the Eagles. Carson Wentz completed just 16 of 27 passes for 160 yards, but three of those completions were in the end zone to Howard, Alshon Jeffery and Dallas Goedert.The Packers jumped out to a 10-0 lead behind a 3-yard Jones touchdown and 30-yard Mason Crosby field goal. Crosby would add a second field goal from 31 yards out after Jeffery’s touchdown to keep a 13-7 lead until the latter stages of the first half.Goedert’s touchdown with 2:45 left in the half gave Philadelphia the lead and a Rodgers fumble on a sack-fumble by Derek Barnett led to Howard’s first score as the Eagles took a 21-13 lead into half.Rodgers would connect with Geronimo Allison and Jimmy Graham for touchdowns in the second half but they were unable to get the final touchdown they needed to send the game to overtime. Rodgers completed 34 of 53 passes for 422 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.Adams had a career-high 180 yards on 10 receptions for the Packers in the loss. With only five draft picks, the Bears nearly signed enough UDFAs to field an entire offense and defense." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMastheadCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTThe Chicago Bears didn’t have a first-round or second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, but when you can turn that first pick (and some others, to be fair) into Khalil Mack, it’s an understandable trade-off. However [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Bryan-Bulaga-Jersey]Bryan Bulaga Jersey[/url] , they ditched their second-rounder on draft day a year ago to trade up into round two to select wideout Anthony Miller.Therefore, they’ll hope that their few additions in the draft and the massive number of undrafted free agents they signed will contribute enough to make a deep playoff run, as their first for 2020 will also be in the hands of the Oakland Raiders.Not picking until round three, the Bears made five total picks in the draft while signing 22 undrafted free agents-- a number that has been reduced to 19 already. DraftedRound 3: RB David Montgomery, Iowa State Round 4: WR Riley Ridley, GeorgiaRound 6: DB Duke Shelley, K-StateRound 7: RB Kerrith Whyte, Florida; DB Stephen Denmark, Valdosta StateWe previously discussed the Bears signing RB Mike Davis to help replace the carries vacated by Jordan Howard, who was traded to the Eagles, and Benny Cunningham (Jaguars), but the Bears proved they weren’t finished at that position. Drafting David Montgomery [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/J_Mon-Moore-Jersey]J'Mon Moore Color Rush Jersey[/url] , a plodder who gained 1,000 yards in his final two seasons at Iowa State feels a little risky, especially considering the Bears moved up from 87 to 73 to grab him, costing an additional 2019 fifth and 2020 fourth to do so. His athletic scoring isn’t particularly impressive and is similar to the aforementioned Howard in terms of style. Not finished at running back, they also added Kerrith Whyte to take another shot at the position late.Riley Ridley is an interesting prospect for the Bears. He’s an above average route runner, and if he’s anything like his older brother, Calvin Ridley, he should contribute right away. With Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, and Taylor Gabriel commanding the top three positions on the offense, Ridley should find a role as the fourth guy.Hoping to add some defensive back depth (because every team should) the Bears went with Duke Shelley and Stephen Denmark. Shelley is bouncing back from a toe injury and can be a backup slot corner for the defense, while Denmark is a converted WR who stands at 6’3”. He’s a player who will need plenty of coaching as he learns to play at the pro level [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Nick-Perry-Jersey]https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Nick-Perry-Jersey[/url] , but big corners make for fun projects.Undrafted Free AgentsDL Daryle Banfield, OL Alex Bars, LB Matt Betts, OL Blake Blackmar, TE Ian Bunting, DB Clifton Duck, WR Emanuel Hall, DL Jonathan Harris, LB Chuck Harris, WR Thomas Ives, DB Doyin Jibowu, OL Joe Lowery [url=https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Davante-Adams-Jersey]Davante Adams Jersey[/url] , OL Sam Mustipher, TE Dax Raymond, TE Ellis Richardson, DB Josh Simmons, OL Marquez Tucker, LS John Wirtel, OL Tommy DolesThe player to watch here is Emanuel Hall, who many thought would be drafted. Adding more weapons to the Matt Nagy offense is never a bad thing. Hall caught people’s attention at the combine when he ran a 4.39 40-yard dash, posted a 43.5” vertical, and a 141” broad jump. He has the second-highest relative athletic score among wide receivers in this 2019 class. He’ll take some refining, but the raw materials are there. Keep an eye on tight end Dax Raymond as a potential contributor as well.
