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

Eagles NFL

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?
