NFL announces complete schedule for 2023 season

The NFL announced its 18-week, 272-game regular-season schedule for 2023, which kicks off on Thursday night, September 7, in Kansas City, where the world-champion Chiefs will battle the Detroit Lions.

The 104th season concludes with 16 division games in Week 18 – two on Saturday, January 6, and 14 on Sunday, January 7.

For the 2023 NFL preseason schedule, click here.

The 2023 NFL schedule will feature each team playing 17 regular-season games and three preseason games for the third consecutive year. The 17th game will feature teams from opposing conferences that finished in the same standing within their respective divisions the previous season. The AFC will be the home conference for the 17th game in 2023.

Week 1:

Week 1 continues Sunday, September 10, with a double-doubleheader featuring four Sunday afternoon games in every market. On CBS at 4:25 PM ET, two 2022 playoff teams meet as Miami visits the Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas travels to Denver in an AFC West showdown and Philadelphia visits New England in a rematch of Super Bowls XXXIX and LII. On FOX at 4:25 PM ET, the two teams with the most regular-season wins in NFL history – Green Bay and Chicago – meet at Soldier Field to renew their rivalry while the Los Angeles Rams travel to Seattle in a rematch of their thrilling Week 18 overtime contest that helped the Seahawks secure a 2022 playoff berth.

Later that day, NBC’s Sunday Night Football begins with the Dallas Cowboys visiting the New York Giants (8:20 PM ET), in a matchup between NFC East divisional rivals and 2022 playoff teams. NBC will televise one game each Sunday night in Weeks 1-15 and Week 17. On Saturday in Week 16, NBC will feature Cincinnati at Pittsburgh (4:30 PM ET) while Peacock will exclusively stream Buffalo at the Los Angeles Chargers at 8:00 PM ET.

Kickoff Weekend concludes on Monday, September 11, with ESPN/ABC’s Monday Night Football, featuring Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets hosting Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills (8:15 PM ET) in an AFC East showdown. YouTube is the presenting sponsor of Kickoff Weekend, marking the first time a League partner will brand the opening weekend of the season, inclusive of Thursday night, the weekend games, and Monday night.

Monday Night Football:

ESPN will televise 16 games this season (one game each Monday night in Weeks 1-15 and Saturday night in Week 17) and will be simulcast on ABC in Weeks 1, 11 and 17, including the Super Bowl LVII rematch between Philadelphia and Kansas City on Monday, November 20. In Weeks 2, 3 and 14, there will be two Monday night games on ESPN and ABC.

In Weeks 2 and 3, the two Monday night games broadcast at 7:15 PM ET and 8:15 PM ET. In Week 14, the two Monday night games will both kickoff at 8:15 ET, as Tennessee visits Miami (ESPN) and the New York Giants host Green Bay (ABC). In Week 16, ABC will broadcast the conclusion of the NFL’s Christmas Day triple-header between Baltimore and San Francisco (8:15 PM ET). There will be no Monday night game on the final regular-season weekend (Week 18) to provide more flexibility for the scheduling of the opening weekend of the NFL playoffs.

Additionally, ESPN/ABC will air two games with playoff implications on the Saturday of Week 18, January 6, at 4:30 PM ET and 8:15 PM ET. These games will be selected following the conclusion of Week 17.

Thursday Night Football:

Thursday Night Football will air exclusively on Prime Video, kicking off its slate in Week 2 as the Philadelphia Eagles host the Minnesota Vikings (8:15 PM ET). Prime Video will broadcast 15 Thursday Night Football games between Weeks 2-17 (excluding Thanksgiving night) and exclusively stream the first-ever NFL Black Friday game when the New York Jets host the Miami Dolphins in Week 12 (3:00 PM ET).

International Games:

The NFL schedule features five international regular-season games – three in the UK and two in Germany, marking the first-ever regular-season NFL games to be hosted in Frankfurt. As part of the League’s expansion of the regular season to 17 games, it was determined that, beginning with the 2022 season, up to four of the teams from the conference whose teams were eligible for a ninth regular-season home game would instead be designated to play a neutral-site international game each year.

The international slate features games in three consecutive weeks, beginning in London at Wembley Stadium in Week 4 with a matchup between Jacksonville and Atlanta (9:30 AM ET, ESPN+). The London action shifts to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the next two weeks, as Jacksonville and Buffalo meet in Week 5 (9:30 AM ET, NFL Network) and Tennessee and Baltimore face off in Week 6 (9:30 AM ET, NFL Network). The Jaguars are scheduled to become the first NFL team to play two regular-season games outside of the United States in the same season.

As part of the League’s commitment to playing regular-season games in Germany, the NFL will play two games in 2023 at Frankfurt Stadium – home of Eintracht Frankfurt, having played the inaugural Germany game last season in Munich. In Week 9, Kansas City takes on Miami (9:30 AM ET, NFL Network) and in Week 10, Indianapolis meets New England (9:30 AM ET, NFL Network) to wrap up the 2023 international games.


Thanksgiving will feature a tripleheader on Thursday, November 23, with three divisional matchups. The first game will feature a pair of NFC North foes, as the Packers travel to Detroit to face the Lions (12:30 PM ET, FOX). The late afternoon game will match two NFC East rivals, as the Washington Commanders visit the Dallas Cowboys (4:30 PM ET, CBS). The Thanksgiving Day festivities conclude with an NFC West divisional matchup as the 49ers travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks on NBC (8:20 PM ET).

Christmas Day:

The Christmas Day tripleheader features Las Vegas at Kansas City at 1:00 PM ET (CBS), the New York Giants at Philadelphia at 4:30 PM ET (FOX) and Baltimore at San Francisco at 8:15 PM ET (ABC).

Flex Scheduling:

The NFL will continue to use “flexible scheduling” this season to ensure exciting and meaningful games are available for viewing by the largest number of fans. Flexible scheduling will be expanded from prior seasons, including to late season weeks of Monday Night Football.

As in prior seasons, for Week 18, the final weekend of the season, the scheduling of the Saturday, Sunday afternoon, and the Sunday night games is not assigned.

In Week 18, two games will be played on Saturday (4:30 PM ET and 8:15 PM ET) with the remainder to be played on Sunday afternoon (1:00 PM ET and 4:25 PM ET) and one matchup to be played on Sunday night (8:20 PM ET). Specific dates, start times, and networks for Week 18 matchups will be determined and announced following the conclusion of Week 17.

Playoffs/Super Bowl:

Super Wild Card Weekend for the 2023 season will feature six games, starting on Saturday, January 13.

Wild Card winners join the top seeds in each conference in the Divisional Playoffs, presented by Intuit TurboTax, on Saturday and Sunday, January 20-21. The AFC and NFC Championship Games, presented by Intuit TurboTax, will be played on Sunday, January 28. The winners meet two weeks later on Sunday, February 11, in Super Bowl LVIII at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium (CBS), marking the first time the league’s final game will be played in Las Vegas.

Additional 2023 schedule notes:

  • Twenty-three games will be Super Bowl rematches, including each of the past two Super Bowls: Philadelphia at Kansas City (Week 11, Super Bowl LVII) and the Los Angeles Rams at Cincinnati (Week 3, Super Bowl LVI).

  • Fourteen 2023 games are rematches from the 2022 playoffs, including Super Bowl LVII, both Championship Games (San Francisco at Philadelphia in Week 13; Cincinnati at Kansas City in Week 17) and all four Divisional playoff games (Kansas City at Jacksonville in Week 2; Buffalo at Cincinnati in Week 9, the New York Giants against Philadelphia in Weeks 16 and 18; Dallas at San Francisco in Week 5).

  • The two most recent winners of the Most Valuable Player award, Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers, are scheduled to face off for the first time in their careers when the Kansas City Chiefs visit the New York Jets on  Sunday Night Football in Week 4 (8:20 PM ET, NBC). Should both players start, Mahomes (two-time MVP) and Rodgers (four-time MVP) would become the seventh different pair of quarterbacks to meet in a regular-season game after both players had won multiple NFL Most Valuable Player awards.

  • The top-two picks in the 2023 NFL Draft, Bryce Young and C.J. Stroud, are scheduled to meet in Week 8 when the Carolina Panthers host the Houston Texans (1:00 PM ET, FOX). Should both players start, it would mark the fifth game in NFL history between rookie starting quarterbacks selected with first and second overall picks in the NFL Draft.

Eagles’ Roseman on Swift: ‘I think he’s a dynamic playmaker’

The Philadelphia Eagles may have done it again. In the first round, some feel they got one of the best players in the draft, former Georgia DT Jalen Carter, and later in the round, they got talented LB Nolan Smith, another Georgia product.

On Day 3 of the draft, they added some talent to the running back room when they acquired Philadelphia native, and once again, former Georgia RB D’Andre Swift from the Detroit Lions for a 2025 fourth-round pick and a flip of seventh-round selections.

Last season, Swift, 24, ran for 542 yards and five touchdowns, and the third-year running back, had 48 catches for 389 yards and three touchdowns, so he’s a versatile player.

Eagles Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman is excited by the acquisition of Swift.

“I’m really excited about the opportunity to get [newly-acquired Eagles RB D’Andre] Swift, bring him back to Philly,” Roseman said. “He’s a guy that we’ve known for a long time. Even when he was in high school, we were watching him. We knew what kind of player he was, watched him through college. Really excited for that opportunity here.”

Roseman discussed how things came together between the Eagles and the Lions in the Swift trade.

“When they took [RB Jahmyr] Gibbs 12th, we thought maybe it was an opportunity,” he said. “They signed [RB David] Montgomery in free agency, and they took Gibbs, and we knew he was in the last year of his deal, and we went into this draft feeling really good about our running back room. We really liked the guys that we have on the roster. We think it was a talented group.

“It wasn’t in our mind a position that we were actively looking to upgrade, but at the same time, we’re always looking for opportunities to improve the team. When this came about, we just felt really good about the player, we felt really good about the person, and it adds another tremendous player and person to our locker room. We feel like we really know who he is as a person, have a lot of connections with him…

“It really started week one when we played them(Lions). You saw the explosiveness when we played them. He had a heck of a game. Every time he touched the ball, you knew there was a chance he could take it the distance.”

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni added on Swift: “First, want to say the same thing that Howie just said right there. We really are happy with our running back room. This was just another great piece to add. But you can definitely see his ability to make people miss in space, and you saw that against our defense last year. He had some unbelievable runs against us last year, where you look at each other like, man, that guy is hard to tackle. So, he has the ability to make you miss and also accelerate through the hole, which will serve us well in some of the draws that we run and some of the RPOs that we run.

“I don’t know exactly how we’ll use him perfectly with each individual run, you have to get your hands on him to see that, but also, in the passing game, I think he’s a dynamic playmaker that’s done some things that we’ve done with guys in the past, with some of the different routes that he runs. But he has a great ability to read defenses out of the backfield, to make guys — to separate from tight coverage out of the backfield, and has really good hands.

“Obviously, again, can’t say enough about the running back room that we have. We’re really excited about the pieces that we had going into the draft, and we’re even more excited about it with the addition of D’Andre.”

The Eagles running back room consists of Swift, Rashaad Penny, Kenneth Gainwell, and Boston Scott, which is solid, especially if they stay healthy. Again, another great day for the Eagles.

Eagles’ Carter expects to be best player in draft

On Thursday night, the rich just got richer. The NFC champion Philadelphia Eagles moved up from the 10th to the ninth spot after trading this year’s pick and a 2024 fourth-round selection with the Bears, and once they moved up, they grabbed former Georgia DT Jalen Carter.

Carter(6-5, 314 pounds), who recently pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving and racing in connection with a fatal crash in January, is one of the most talented players in this draft, but there were a lot of questions surrounding him after the accident, which is probably one of the reasons he dropped to nine.

After being selected by Philly, the 22-year-old was emotional, which he discussed.

“My mind was changing every second,” Carter said during a video conference call on Thursday. “I was just thinking about how my family felt. I’ve been grinding all my life for this moment right now, and just to see the smile on their faces and the tears coming out of their eyes, it made me tear up.”

The All-American will be reunited with his former college teammates, Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean, in Philly, and Carter says he has a close relationship with those players.

“The relationship is very close,” he said. “I actually talked to [Eagles DT] Jordan Davis. I think it was yesterday. [Eagles LB] Nakobe [Dean], we’ve been texting a little bit. I know they’re probably texting my phone now, so when I get my phone, they’re probably going to have a little message for me, or we might have a little FaceTime call real quick and just talk about what we’re about to do.”

According to Carter, the Eagles are getting the best player in the draft.

“My general expectations were whoever drafts me is going to get the best player in the draft,” Carter said. “I just had high hopes for Philly because I had a good visit with them, and I felt like it was a good team to go to and play for.”

Eagles Executive Vice President/General Manager Howie Roseman discussed the amount of research the team did before drafting Carter.

“I’ve talked about [Senior Advisor to the General Manager/Chief Security Officer] Dom [DiSandro] many, many times about the work that he does, which is the best in the National Football League, and we understand that all these players, they need to be developed,” Roseman said. “They’re coming into the league at a very young age. They’re not finished products. I think all of us, when we were 21 and 22, hopefully, have grown a lot from that time, and you just really want to get to know the person and what’s in their heart. I think when we got to know Jalen, we just felt like here’s a kid that he does love football. Obviously, he’s a winner. He won in high school; he won in college.

“We feel like we have really good people in this building. We have really good support staff. We have really good players who are good people. We have really good coaches. We felt like it was a good fit for us.”

There is a risk in selecting Carter, but he’s talented, young, and young people make mistakes. Let’s hope he continues to grow as a player and a person.

Roseman, Sirianni discuss Jalen Hurts new deal

On Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles signed their quarterback Jalen Hurts to a lucrative contract extension, as he signed a five-year deal worth $255 million, including $179 million guaranteed($110 million at signing). 

The Eagles have their franchise quarterback locked up for the next few seasons. On Thursday, Eagles Executive Vice President/GM Howie Roseman and head coach Nick Sirianni met the media and discussed Hurts’ new contract.

Roseman gave credit to Hurts and his agent Nicole Lynn, and he believes this is a good deal for both sides.

“Really just the way that everyone kind of made an effort to do this in a way that was really win-win,” Roseman said. “I think it’s a heck of a deal for Jalen. I think it’s a heck of a deal for the Eagles. I think those are really the best kind of deals.

“Really, when I think about Jalen coming here, there are so many people that deserve a lot of credit for where we are right now. It starts with Jalen and his work ethic and his determination. From the first day we drafted him, he had a vision of what kind of player he was going to be, and then just everyone who has been around him who’s rallied around him. It’s a great story. We’re certainly not at the end of the story. I think we’re really at the beginning of the story.”

Sirianni added on the contract: “I was juiced. I was excited. Jalen and I have a great relationship, and as a coach to player and player to coach, I really value those relationships that we have. Obviously, his play has spoken for itself. So, you’re getting a guy that you — one of my favorite things is –, and I felt like when I left Indy, I missed out on this — there were a lot of guys that signed contracts in Indy after I left. I was like, man, I always really liked that part of it where guys get rewarded for what they’ve done, and I’m able to be there with them and be happy for them and still be able to coach them.”

The 24-year-old Hurts has not had many injuries, but last season, he did miss two games due to a shoulder injury. Hurts developed as a passer last season, but he relies on his legs, which is okay; however, the Eagles want to protect their investment, which Sirianni discussed.

“We just have to continue to do a good job of developing,” Sirianni said. “I’ll just answer it for both of us. [Executive Vice President/General Manager] Howie [Roseman] is going to say, we’re going to bring in guys to help [QB] Jalen [Hurts] do his job better, and I’m going to say the guys that Howie brings in, I’m going to do my best, and our coaching staff is going to do our best to maximize their potential as far as how we develop them fundamentally and as a football player and putting them in positions to be able to make plays. That’s our job, is to do that.”

Patricia joins the coaching staff

The Eagles announced on Thursday that they had added Matt Patricia to the coaching staff as a senior defensive assistant. Last season, Patricia, who was a head coach with the Lions from 2018-2020 after being a defensive coordinator with New England, return to the Patriots as an assistant coach.

Sirianni believes Patricia will add some more experience to the coaching staff.

“Obviously, his resume speaks for itself,” Sirianni said. “It gives you a great mind in there that’s done it at the highest level, and so it gives you great ability to bounce ideas off of with the defensive staff. Then also it gives me another former head coach that I can bounce ideas off of, as well, with things, which I think will be very helpful.”

Jalen Hurts becomes the highest-paid player in NFL history

After having a career year and leading the Eagles to the Super Bowl, it was clear that Jalen Hurts would get paid, and on Monday, he got his money.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Hurts signed a five-year deal worth $255 million, including $179 million guaranteed($110 million at signing); the $51 million average annual value is the largest in league history.

In addition, the third-year quarterback has a no-trade clause, which is the first time the Eagles have added that to a contract in team history. Clearly, team president/GM Howie Roseman and head coach Nick Sirianni believe in Hurts.

Last season, Hurts, who was drafted by the Eagles in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, had career-highs in passing yards(3701), passing touchdowns(22), and rushing touchdowns(13). Hurts made his first Pro Bowl and was the runner-up to Patrick Mahomes for league MVP. In the regular season, Hurts finished the year with a 14-1 record (.933 winning percentage) as a starter, and at 24 years old, he became the second youngest QB in NFL history to win 14 regular-season games.

In Super Bowl 57, Hurts was spectacular as he threw for 304 yards and a touchdown and ran for a Super Bowl record 70 yards and three more touchdowns.

The deal is reportedly team-friendly and gives the Eagles financial flexibility moving forward , which will allow Philadelphia to build a solid roster around their quarterback, and according to Schefter, here are the first four seasons of the contract.

2023: $6.15 million

2024: $13.56 million

2025: $21.77 million

2026: $31.77 million

Hurts appears to have the goods. Everyone was shocked when the Eagles drafted Hurts because they had Carson Wentz, who had a long-term deal with the team. However, Philly had enough confidence in Hurts and ultimately moved on from the struggling Wentz.

No one questioned Hurts’ intangibles or his ability to run, but they questioned his ability to throw the ball at a high level and questioned whether he could be a franchise quarterback. He has answered those questions.

He proved the doubters wrong in college; he’s proven them wrong in the NFL, and now he’s a star.

Report: Gardner-Johnson signs with Lions

C.J. Gardner-Johnson was one best safeties on the free agent market, and on Sunday night, he decided where he would play football in 2023.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the former Eagle is getting a one-year deal worth up to $8 million. This deal allows the 25-year-old to test the market again after the 2023 season.

In 2022, the four-year veteran, who helped Philadelphia get to the Super Bowl, was tied for the league lead in interceptions(6), despite missing five games due to a lacerated kidney.

Last August, the Eagles acquired the Gardner-Johnson and a seventh-round draft pick in 2025 from the Saints in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2023 and the latter of the Eagles’ two sixth-round choices in 2024.

Philadelphia was able to keep corners Darius Slay and James Bradberry, but they did not keep Gardner-Johnson.

According to’s Jeff McLane, they made a multi-year offer early in free agency, but Gardner-Johnson was looking for more. 

It should be interesting to see how Philly addresses the safety position. Currently, they have Reed Blankenship, Tristin McCollum, and Andre Chachere on the roster, so they will have to address the position; the Eagles could address the position in the upcoming draft, which is deep with safeties, but at this point, losing Gardner-johnson is a loss for Philadelphia.

Eagles: Hargrave, Edwards, Epps are on the move; Kelce returns for 13th season

Last season, the Philadelphia Eagles had a loaded roster, which helped them become NFC champions and play in Super Bowl 57, but that roster took a hit on the opening day of NFL free agency.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, former Eagles Pro Bowl DT Javon Hargrave has reached an agreement on a four-year, $84 million deal that includes $40 million guaranteed at signing with the San Francisco. 49ers.

Last season, Hargrave, who started 20 games(including playoffs) recorded a career-high 11.0 sacks, which helped Philadelphia record a league-leading 70 sacks in the regular season. The 49ers already had a stout defense and an excellent defensive line, and the addition of Hargrave makes their defensive line and defense even better next season.

Hargrave, 30, joined the Eagles in 2020 as a free agent when he signed a three-year, $39 million deal after spending the first four seasons of his career with the Steelers. The seven-year veteran spent three seasons in Philadelphia.

Without Hargrave, the Eagles hope that DT Jordan Davis can step up next season.

Edwards goes to Chicago

Former Eagles LB T.J. Edwards has reportedly signed with the Chicago Bears. According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Edwards gets $19.5M over three years, with $12 million guaranteed. 

The 26-year-old had a breakout season in 2022. Edwards, who started all 20 games for the Eagles last season, including the playoffs, had a career-high 159 tackles in the regular season.

He spent four seasons in Philadelphia after joining the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2019. 

As of now, Philadelphia is hoping LB Nakobe Dean can replace Edwards.

Epps is headed to Las Vegas

According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Raiders are signing former Eagles safety Marcus Epps to a two-year, $12 million deal with nearly $8 million guaranteed.

Last season, the 27-year-old Epps started all 20 games for Philadelphia, and according to ESPN’s Stats & Info, Epps played 1,058 defensive snaps, the most by any Eagles player in 2022.

Epps was claimed off waivers by the Eagles in 2019 after playing eight games with the Vikings.

He spent four seasons in Philadelphia.

Kelce returns!

In some good news for the Eagles, Pro Bowl center Jason Kelce announced that he would return for next season and play his 13th season in Philadelphia.

Kelce, 35, went to his sixth Pro Bowl last season and was selected All-Pro for the fifth time in his career. Kelce has not missed a game for the last eight seasons and is still playing at a very high level.

Here’s how Kelce announced his return:

“I have put much thought into whether it makes sense to play another season. After talking it over with my wife and many other friends and family, I have decided to return for another year. Thank you to all my supporters and detractors for fueling me, I ain’t fu***** done yet!”

All deals can become official on March 15.

Eagles’ Sirianni talks Quez Watkins

In 2021, in his first season as a starter, Eagles wide receiver Quez Watkins had 43 receptions(62 targets) for 647 yards and a touchdown. This season, with the addition of A.J. Brown, Watkins’ role changed, and his production went down. 

In 2022, Watkins, a sixth-round pick of the Eagles in 2020, had 33 receptions(51 targets) for 354 yards and a touchdown.

In addition, the 24-year-old had a big drop in the Eagles’ Super Bowl 57 loss to the Chiefs. 

According to the third-year wide receiver, he took a step back in 2022.

“I know I took a step back from last year to this year,” he said at the end of the season. “But it was a humbling season, and I’m looking forward to getting back to work.”

Brown and DeVonta Smith both had one-thousand-yard seasons, and tight end Dallas Goedert gets a lot of targets, so there’s not much left for guys like Watkins and Zach Pascal, so in reality, Watkins not having the same production is no surprise.

On Tuesday, from the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni discussed Watkins’ season.

“Yeah, I think when you look at that, it’s easy to say, well, Quez Watkins didn’t have the same year he had last year,” Sirianni said. “Well, he didn’t have the opportunities he had last year, and it actually wasn’t even close.

“And so, when you ran the ball the way we did this year, when you threw it … I think if [TE] Dallas Goedert doesn’t get hurt and miss those four games he probably has 1,000 yards. So, you have three 1,000-yard receivers potentially – you have one that had 1,500 yards [A.J. Brown], one that had, 1,300 did DeVonta [Smith] have? Close? 1,300 yards, like somebody’s production is going to slip a little bit.

“The things that Quez does is [he] stretches the field. The things that Zach Pascal did was [being] our enforcer. Go back and look at the tape of how many times he was in on a big block that sprung a big run, or even the play that he made against Pittsburgh for a touchdown. Like why did that play come up and why was he able to score on that play? And I’m talking about Zach. Well, it was because he had made that block so many times that they all jumped in and he ran by them.

“And so, the production, all I want them to do is produce in the roles that we’re asking them to. When there is a play to be made, make the play that you need to be made. But we understand, too, that they didn’t have a lot opportunities. And I’m talking about Zach and Quez. They didn’t have a lot of opportunities because, like I’ve said to you guys, our pass game run through A.J., it ran through DeVonta, and it ran through Dallas Goedert. We were looking to get them the ball, and sometimes … I know [Philadelphia 76ers head coach] Doc Rivers used to do so say this a lot: Some guys are just going to have to get rebounds, and then if you got a chance to put it in, you got to take advantage of that opportunity to put that thing in. But we’re going to design plays to run through boom, boom, boom, right? And that’s what we’re talking about with roles.

“And so, I think it’s easy to look at the stats and say, hey, his numbers were way lower. They were, but he didn’t have as many opportunities because of the other guys that we had on the team and how much faith we had in them.

“But we do have faith and Zach and we do have faith in Quez that they’ll make plays when their number is called. It’s just that it’s called a little less.”

Watkins has some big-play ability, and the role that he has with the Eagles is not easy because he’s not always going to get his number called. However, when he has chance to make a play, he has to make it.
