The Eagles are a touchdown underdog tomorrow against the Chiefs at the Linc.
And for them to have any chance, Javon Hargrave has to be in Patrick Mahomes’ face all day.
Through three games, Hargrave has four sacks.
He’s well on his way to besting his career high of 6 1/2, which he set with the Steelers in 2018. He’s averaging a sack every 48 snaps and has recorded eight pressures and three quarterback hits.
The bull-rushing specialist teams with Fletcher Cox to give the Eagles one of the NFL’s top interior duos.
The line is Philly’s defensive strength, and Chiefs rookie offensive linemen Creed Humphrey, Trey Smith and Lucas Niang should expect to be tested in a big way come Sunday.
