Watching the replay of last night’s game and Charles Harris, Christian Wilkins and Sam Eguavoen were EXCELLENT last night. Have to be encouraged.— Adam Beasley (@AdamHBeasley) August 17, 2019
Christian Wilkins picks up a clean-up sack, but that's what you like in this third-down and long defense. They'll drop 8 in coverage and send three rushers who want to re-set the pocket, disengage and chase. Wilkins does it perfectly.— Travis Wingfield (@WingfieldNFL) August 17, 2019
