BEWARE EAGLES! HAWKS’ TE JIMMY GRAHAM IS STILL DANGEROUS!

By Peter Gleason

The once-mighty Seattle Seahawks are wounded on defense, but the Eagles need to beware of tight end Jimmy Graham.

Grahamwill face a lot of coverages against the Eagles, though half of his receptions since Week 8 have come lined out either outside right or outside left.

Either way, Graham’s best routes have been defended at a remarkable rate by the Eagles, with one of his best routes not even attempted against them over the last four weeks.

However, in that same span, Graham has scored six touchdowns, while no other tight end has more than three, and he has been responsible for a first down or touchdown on 63 percent of his 40 targets, the second highest rate among tight ends with 30 or more targets.

While the Seahawks have only scored less than 20 points once since Week 8 after doing it three times in their first six games, the Eagles have allowed more than 10 points only once in that span, and have held tight ends to nine catches on 13 targets for 81 yards, one pass defended, and have two defensive players with a coverage grade at 85.0 or higher.
