Philadelphia Eagles plan to sub vs. Ravens' no-huddle

The Baltimore Ravens broke out their new-look no-huddle offense and had great success in Week 1. The Philadelphia Eagles aren't concerned.

NFL.com and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL Network's "First on the Field" that the Eagles are ready for their showdown with the Ravens and are prepared for the hurry-up and expect the Ravens to push the ball downfield.

They should be prepared. With one of the best defensive secondaries in football, the Eagles can rely on that. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha on the outside make life much easier when the offense is pushing the tempo. And after studying the Ravens' tendencies, the Eagles are prepared to sub when the Ravens go into their no-huddle attack, Rapoport reported.

Rapoport tweeted, "When #Ravens are ready to go deep and take a shot, #Eagles will have 4 DLs buckled up ready to race onto the field, (Jason) Babin said. read to sub"

That could mean more snaps for Brandon Graham, who's trying to play himself back the rotation.
