The Eagles made quite the splash this past week with the acquisitions of defensive tackle Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh.

Joseph signed on Wednesday and Suh signed on Thursday. There have been plenty of occasions where players don’t get up to speed quickly enough to play in the subsequent game.

The odds of Joseph playing were much greater than Suh’s. In fact, there were plenty of people who didn’t think Suh would play against the Colts.

Well, as it turns out, Suh is in fact playing against the Colts.

Adding Linval was big enough already. But the addition of Suh is even bigger. The Eagles have given up 1,123 yards rushing this year, which is good for 17th in the league. The run defense was a major issue in their loss against the Washington Commanders and both players will be key in improving that moving forward.

And most immediately, against Jonathan Taylor and the Indianapolis Colts.
