Bradley Fletcher Standing Out In Philadelphia Eagles’ Secondary
Bradley Fletcher had himself a day Sunday with nine tackles and five pass break ups in what was an active game for the first year Philadelphia Eagles corner. Fletcher was primarily responsible for covering big wide receivers Hakeem Nicks and Rueben Randle, and even though both did make a few plays, Fletcher did a great job of limiting the damage and not allowing anything deep for quarterback Eli Manning in a solid overall effort for the Philadelphia Eagles’ defense.
The New York Giants looked to be gaining momentum when they scored two straight touchdowns to go ahead in the third quarter. However, between the offense responding and the defense clamping down the Eagles showed great resiliency for a young team in not letting adversity get them down. In previous weeks this defense may have crumbled, but the defense did a good job of getting off the field and totally changing the momentum of the game with three turnovers.
While Fletcher wasn’t in on the action with any interceptions his pass break ups were key to the Eagles forcing a couple of three and outs. He did a nice job trailing receivers all day and looked smooth in coverage. When healthy, Fletcher has actually been solid all season.
He has been responsible in man and zone coverage. While the secondary has had its problems this year he has not been one of the culprits responsible for blown assignments. He is simply reliable back there. In a year of chaos this year in the back end, he and Brandon Boykin have been two cool customers for the Eagles in the back four. Hopefully their play is contagious.
