bills. a game you saw right here on nbc1037 the run game falters again and carson wentz unable to get into a rhythm finishing six for nine for 56 yards. five of those nine attempts went the way of wentz's new favorite target alshon jeffery, connecting twice. despite the rest of the offense sputtering, coach john defilippo says progress has been made this offseason. >> the difference is number one, i think a year in the offense has given our guys a lot of confidence on the outside. i think a year of strength. you see nelson agholor playing with a lot more confidence. obviously he's always had a ton of speed. i think you see the confidence in catching the ball outside his body. you see alshon having a big catching radius. i think when you have all those factors and that opens up the middle of the field for zack and trey burton. whenever you have weapons on the outside, it opens up the middle of the field for our backs and tight ends. >> impressive first outing on

ability to make plays on the ball. he's got quick twitch. he can change direction. we're excited to add him to our corner group and for the first time in a long time have a long list of young corners we're excited to see develop. >> you had to trade away matthews. it was a tough deal to make. what was about the other receivers on this team right now that led you to be available to make that trade? >> i think to get a corner at this point in time in the year, we knew we would have to give a lot. we had this conversation if we were going to make a drad, it was going to hurt to make the trade. to talk about jordan, the production he had as a philadelphia eagle, what he represented on and off the field, we tried other ways but couldn't get this done without giving up jordan matthews. he's a heck of a player. seeing how our receivers have done throughout the offseason gave us confidence they were ready to take a step up. >> the evil empire in action tonight. the cowboys hosting the colts.
