WATCH: Zach Ertz Makes One-Handed Catch to Keep Drive Alive
The Philadelphia Eagles were expecting big things when they selected Zach Ertz from the University of Stanford at the top of the 2nd round, number 35 overall, in the 2013 NFL Draft.
While we have seen flashes of brilliance from Ertz, it finally looks like he might be a key contributor for the Eagles in Doug Pederson's offense.
The talented tight end caught six passes for 58 yards in the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Browns - including this amazing one-handed catch that helped to keep the opening drive alive, leading to the teams first touchdown.
With former Eagles draft pick Jordan Poyer draped all over him, Ertz freed up his left arm and corralled the Carson Wentz pass in to keep the drive alive. Eagles fans will be hoping to see plenty more of those connections from Wentz-to-Ertz - who I like to call the Z-Boys.
