QB corner: Matt Ryan on the Eagles 

Q: What are your thoughts on Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins?
A: Malcolm is a great player. Has been for a long time. Played against him seemingly… forever. He’s physical, he’s very smart, he’s very instinctive. They move him around quite a bit into different spots, different positions.

Q: How do you slow down Tim Jernigan and Fletcher Cox?
A: They’ve got good interior players. A good front four across the board and depth in the front four, and they rotate well. We’ve got to play well. Interior, we’ve got to play very well and handle some of the stuff that they do up front.

Q: How’s linebacker Nigel Bradham on the second level of their defense? 
A: He flies, man. He is a really good player. Very athletic. Does a nice job for them, stays in really in all packages. They’ll play a lot of dime where they’ll leave one backer in the game and he’s out there. He’s tough. He moves around, he tackles well, he’s physical and he can run. I think he’s one of their premier guys.”
