WATCH: Darren Sproles breaking tackles on 89-yard punt return TD

Sam Bradford and the Eagles offense again started slow in Week 3, but the good news is that the defense and special teams showed up in a big way from kickoff. The defense has frustrated Ryan Fitzpatrick so far, and as for the special teams...

Thankfully for the Eagles, the New Orleans Saints had serious cap issues a couple of offseasons ago. Howie Roseman was able to acquire both Darren Sproles and Malcolm Jenkins, who have both been great in Philly. Sproles makes a huge play for the Eagles here on special teams, and the 32-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down.

And just like that, Bradford leads the Eagles down the field for a touchdown and 17-0 lead. Things are looking up?
