Haason Reddick isn’t a slouch.

But after a lackadaisical Week 1, he told NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Reuben Frank that he is ready to play better in Week 2.

“At some point, I just feel like I have to make a play that affects the game. That’s what I was brought here to do,” he said Thursday. “At some point in the game, I want to be a factor.

“And while I did have some good plays, I did a lot of good things, I don’t think I really made a game-changing play. And it’s all right. It’s Week 1. I’m not worried about it. We have 16 more weeks, 16 more opportunities, and I know everything that I’m looking to accomplish will come.”

In the opening game, Reddick, who signed with the Eagles in March, played 47 snaps and totaled two tackles, including one for a loss.

The Eagles are expecting more. And so is Reddick himself.

“There were a couple of things I saw after the game that I wish I would have seen during the game, but now that I know what those things are, I can focus on that and it’ll open up a lot of things for me. That’s all I gotta do. Just do what I didn’t do last week and everything will be OK.

“Week 1, man. Now it’s time to get settled down, start correcting the small details, the small minor mistakes, and start playing football that’s closer to our standard.”

Reddick makes his home debut Monday, facing the Minnesota Vikings.

Let’s hope it’s better than his Week 1 performance last Sunday.
