Eagles first-round pick DeVonta Smith is wasting no time getting comfortable in the NFL. He’s caught five passes from Jalen Hurts already with a touchdown on his first catch in the league.
It sounds a bit strong, but it’s clear the Eagles have a potential star on their hands.

The Eagles lead the Falcons late in the second half 7-6 where eight Philadelphia penalties are the story. If Philly sures up the penalties, expect DeVonta Smith and Jalen Hurts to reconnect in the end zone before this one wraps up.
