what were you expecting from yourself? >> no real expectations. wanted to compete and put stuff on film to learn from. >> 34-yard touchdown, multiple catches. tell me about the touchdown, in particular. >> great read. gave me a chance. good concentration on the catch and tried to finish the play. >> everybody talks about the speed of the game going from practice to an actual game. was the speed that much of a difference? >> well, we prepare ourselves to, you know, simulate the speed of the game in practice. i thought that this was actually a little slower than how we practice. we push hard and push ourselves to uncomfortable situations. >> nelson, thank you. >> here's how the quarterbacks faired in the eagles win over the indianapolis colts. for more analysis on this group and much more, let's send it back to john clark. >> now, let's go up to the eagles broadcast booth. the guy who called the game and did a tremendous job calling the game and breaking it down for
us, our eagles tv analyst. mike, even though sanchez looked inaccurate, tell us about the job his receivers did, the young receivers, really adjusting to plays and getting the footballs. >> i think you start with nelson aghol agholor. even though he had a drop or two, he's a natural any time he catches the football. he did a great job. i like the kid, number 18, made a couple plays. there's a lot to be excited about with the eagles and his skilled positions. >> if you're looking at this game and you're evaluating barkley versus tebow, who do you think played better? >> they're contrasting styles and it depends on what you're looking for. barkley is a guy who understands the offense. it's his third year in the offense. he gets the ball out quickly and accurately. you know what you're getting with barkley. the flip side is the wild card. tim tebow was a total wild card. in his first series, he got rid
of the football accurately and on time. after that, i thought he struggled. >> on it goes. next saturday, eagles-ravens, preseason game number two. nbc 10 is the place to watch it from pregame, kickoff to the post game. don't miss a minute starting at 6:30. final round of the pga championship. jason day entered the day with the lead. jordan spieth could not catch him, but he moved to number one in the world of golf rankings. have a look at this putt on 7. talk about lining one up. if the ball had wings, it'd be a birdie. into the cup it goes. on 18, day taps in, tons of emotion pouring out as he wins his first major at 20 under par, a new pga champ jionship record 90th minute, sebastian gives union a 3-2 lead. man, oh, man. can't describe this one, as the union can't put out the fire.
they get the equalizer off the cross late in the game and finishes in a 3-3 draw. last night, padres outfielder upton was mad, trying to throw his helmet. it slips out of his hand and hit alonzo in the head. alonzo was upset, but had fun today, wearing catcher's gear in the dugout. pretty good. that's sports. i'm danny pommells. we'll be right back.
